New Product for Fire Sealing Sockets

Putty PadThe Protecta Putty Pad has been designed to maintain the fire resistance of gypsum walls where these are breached by electical switches and sockets.

The Putty Pad is a non-setting flexible intumescent pad based on a silicone polymer with additional fire retardant additives. The Putty Pad can be fitted inside or on the outside of the socket or switch box and in a fire they form a robust fire resistant char that prevents burn through at the location of electrical penetrations. Only 1 pad is required for each box and these can be any combination of internal/external fix to allow more flexibility when fixing drywall linings on second fix.

The Putty Pad can be supplied in 4 sizes to suit single or double electrical boxes and are supplied on a quick release paper. The Putty Pad is also an ideal product for air-sealing around penetration openings.
