Domus Ventilation, manufacturer of market-leading ventilation systems that save energy and improve indoor air quality, has added new products to its Fire Sleeves and Fire Collars range.
With the new products, Domus Ventilation ensures a complete range of Building Regulations compliant fire protection for Domus ducting.
Fire Sleeves and Fire collars are used to prevent the spread of fire where ventilation ducting penetrates fire compartment walls, as required by Building Regulations. To achieve this, Domus Fire Collars and Sleeves are made using a flexible galvanised steel shell containing graphite based intumescent material to ensure impressive fire ratings and have been tested to BSEN 1366-3: 2009. The new Fire Sleeves are designed to fit the smallest Domus duct (round 100mm / rectangular 110 X 54mm) and provide a 120 minutes fire rating. The new Fire Collars launched fit the smallest and largest round ducting (100mm or 150mm) with a fire rating of 60 to 240 minutes respectively.
Domus Fire Sleeves are designed for both rectangular and round vertical and horizontal ducting and their slimline profile saves ceiling space. They are suitable for masonry walls or plasterboard partitions as well as insulated or non-insulated partitions. Domus Fire Collars are specifically for round, vertical ducting and provide a fire rating of up to four hours.
The new Fire Sleeves and Fire Collars, which have been added to complete Domus Ventilation’s fire protection range, are easy to install without the help of any special tools, skills or mechanical fixings. They can be easily retrofitted where required and their robust material ensures that their performance remains unaffected by weathering, enabling them to last the lifetime of the building.
In addition to rigid ducting fire protection, Domus Ventilation’s RDFS75 semi-Rigid Duct Fire-Stopping Sleeve is available for the Domus Radial Duct System. Unlike traditional branch style ducting, Domus Radial uses 75mm semi rigid duct to connect directly from each room vent to a central distribution system, negating the need for various duct bends and connectors. This system benefits from less air leakage and improved air flow, which also makes for easier commissioning and a quieter system, as well as it being quicker to install than traditional branch ducting.
Following these latest additions, Domus Ventilation now offers fire solutions for 75mm, 100mm, 125mm, 150mm, 110x54mm, 204x60mm and 220x90mm ducting.
