Safing™ Mineral Wool Firestopping Insulation
- Exceptional performance in Perimeter Fire Containment Systems
- Provides life saving fire protection in rated assemblies
- Fire resistant to temperatures above 2,000°F (1,093°C)
- Easy to fabricate for through penetrations and firestopping
- Conserves energy, reduces greenhouse gas emissions
- Resists moisture
- Controls noise and sound
THERMAFIBER Safing™ products are designed to provide life saving fire protection in perimeter fire containment systems, floor and wall penetrations, construction joints, and other firestopping applications. These products are noncombustible, moisture-resistant, noncorrosive, nondeteriorating, mildew-proof and vermin-proof. Thermafiber Safing provides thermal insulation, fire protection, and acoustical control in many different UL and Intertek (formerly OPL) listed fire containment assemblies of 1, 2, and 3-hr ratings.
- Safing 4.0 pcf, 2" or greater thickness, is available with or without a vapor reatarding foil facing.
- Safing 6.0 pcf, 1.5" or greater thickness, is available with or without a vapor retarding foil facing.
- Recycled Content Options¹:
Standard Fiber (Compiles with EPA Preference Program)..................Minimum 75%
¹Recycled content options other than standard must be specified at time of order.
All firestopping insulation should be installed per the architectural specification or system specific test description. All compressed Safing insulation should be installed per the listed assembly.
- Perimeter Installation: Safing™ insulation should be compression fitted between the slab edge and the FireSpan curtain wall insulation, leaving no voids.
- Penetration Application: Safing insulation should be cut slightly larger than the opening and compression fitted into the opening, leaving no voids.
- Construction Joint Application: Safing insulation should be compression fitted into the joint opening, leaving no voids.
