Continental Fire Protection Ltd » Intumescent Strip - intumescent strip fire and smoke

An ASTRO intumescent graphite based fireseal contained within a PVC sleeve fitted into a rebate to either the leaves or the frame will in the event of a fire expand to many times its original volume and seal the gap around the door to provide a safe and effective barrier against the passage of fire, smoke and hot gases.


Continental Fire Protection Ltd » Intumescent Strip - intumescent fire seals

Astroflame smokeseals provide a permanent barrier to smoke, acoustic and thermal applications and are particularly important as smoke travels faster and further than fire itself. All ASTRO seals are supplied with a self-adhesive backing tape as standard to facilitate quick and easy fitting. Astroflame Intumescent Fireseals are available with or without a cold smoke seal in the form of a nylon pile.


Continental Fire Protection Ltd » Intumescent Downlight Cover

The fire is unable to penetrate the hole and the cover is able to give additional insulation protection to the ceiling void to reduce the chance of heat build up and ignition of flammable materials such as accumulated dust and insulation. To combat this the ASTRO Downlighter Cover has been developed to cover maximum protection for holes created by he introduction of a downlighter and to allow for maximum ease of fitting.
