Intumescent Putty Pads provide fire resistance in plasterboard walls where socket boxes have been fitted.
Intumescent Putty Pads have been developed to maintain the acoustic integrity and fire resistance of plasterboard partitions, where plastic electric socket boxes have been fitted. They also make a significant contribution to the reduction of air leakage in properties helping reduce energy costs and carbon emissions.
Installation is simple. Remove the face plate of the electrical socket box and mould the pre-formed putty pads into the back of the box and around the cables then simply replace and secure the face plate.
Under fire conditions the intumescent pad expands to fill the void left by the burnt out electrical socket box, preventing the spread of fire through the plasterboard wall. The intumescent putty can also be used for upgrading the acoustic performance of partitions where electrical sockets boxes have penetrated.
