When exposed to the heat of a fire, the excellent thermal insulation properties of Abesco Fire Rated Boards provide an effective barrier, preventing the passage of fire and elevated temperatures.
The use of Abesco Fire Rated Coating and Mastic is an essential element in the performance of the system.
The mastic provides an ideal medium for filling the small gaps between cables, pipes etc. thus contributing to the effectiveness of the fire and smoke sealing performance.
