Membrane solutions specialist, The A. Proctor Group, has announced that it’s Fireshield vapour permeable membrane has been awarded a British Board of Agrément Certificate.
Fireshield is the culmination of leading research to produce a vapour permeable membrane with a fire proof surface, which is designed specifically to improve the fire protection behind cladding.
The BBA Certificate confirms that Fireshield has enhanced performance in relation to reaction to fire classification, will reduce the risk of interstitial condensation, and will have a life equal to that of the building in which it is installed.
Fireshield has an intumescent composition that actively reacts to prevent fire taking hold. The coating extinguishes fire rather than just resisting it, and significantly reduces the formation of droplets and smoke.
Fireshield complies with BS5250, BS4016 and NHBC requirements for vapour permeable walling underlays. It is installed and fixed to the substrate in the same manner as standard breather membranes using mechanical fixings.
