Fire Protection Insulation
Rockwool FireSeal is a special formulation of Rockwool that can retard the spread of flame for up to 30 minutes. For construction in bushfire areas it is worth considering including FireSeal in ember prone areas such as eaves, valleys and roof perimeters. This formulation of Rockwool is such that it has a very low shrinkage and will satisfy up to 2 hour Fire Rating Systems.
Within the home, consideration should be given to where fires are more likely to start such as kitchens or around appliances such as clothes dryers. Bradford FireSeal installed in these areas can suppress any fire outbreak from spreading for up to 30 minutes. Safe Zones are another consideration for peace of mind where a particular room might be fully insulated with FireSeal as a storm shelter in particularly fire prone neighbourhoods.
