KNAUF INSULATION FIRE-TEK® DUCTPROTECT 30 R SYSTEM ELEMENTS
The Knauf Insulation Fire-teK® DuctProtect 30 R SYSTEM is a system that provides superior passive fire protection of different types of rectangular ventilation ducts.
Passive structural fireproof protection is one of the most important factors in HVAC, shipbuilding, and the process industry. Together with appropriate fire containment, highly efficient fireproof insulation is necessary to prevent the spread of flames, heat and smoke to other areas in case of fire.
Ventilation systems can spread fire, heat and smoke if unprotected, too. Fire-rated rectangular ducts assure separation of the building into several fire compartments in order to save lives and property. Therefore, only technically proven fireproof insulation can be installed in fire protective horizontal and vertical rectangular ducts.
Building materials, such as Mineral Wool boards, are classified according to their fire behavior. The classification of fire behavior of building materials is regulated by EN 13501-1.
Additional products, which complement and add additional performance to the system:
Knauf Insulation Fire-teK® DuctProtect 30 R SYSTEM has been developed for use on rectangular horizontal and vertical ventilation ducts.
In addition to protecting in the event of a fire, the Knauf Insulation Fire-teK® DuctProtect 30 R SYSTEM also has excellent thermal and acoustic insulation properties. Due to the dimensions of the insulation boards, the system can even be also used where space is at a premium.
The system provides guaranteed fire resistance of up to 30 minutes (if installed following the installation guidelines).
