A Fire Rated PU Foam
FF197 is a modified, single component, fire rated polyurethane foam. It cures to form a semi-rigid foam that is able to accommodate some degree of movement of the joint.
FF197 is perfect for sealing gaps found around fire rated doors, and can be easily applied with a straw nozzle or professional foam gun.
Provides up to 240 minutes fire protection.
FF197 Testing and Certification
Tested to BS EN standards, FF197 is the only fire rated foam available on the UK market place which is fully supported by third party accredited testing.
- BS EN 1366-4 Fire resistance test for service installations. Linear joint seals.
- BS EN 1634-1 Fire resistance test for doors, shutters and openable windows.
- BS476-22 Fire resistance of non-loadbearing elements of construction. Building materials and structures.
How does EU Fire testing compare with BS fire rating testing?
Both Standards use thermocouples The European fire test standards (BS EN) all use the more advanced plate thermocouple technology to measure the air temperature, BS476 series of tests use the wire thermocouple option. BS EN (British Standard European Norm) 1366-4 could be considered a more vigorous test because it is tested to a more consistent recorded temperature.
FF197 is Tested to BS EN 1366-4, BS EN 1634-1 and meets BS476-20 & 22
