Manufactured from a hard wearing specially treated glass cloth filled with a mixture of mineral fibre and reactive expansion agents, which on exposure to heat from a fire will first expand and then harden to provide a complete and durable seal against the passage of fire, smoke and hot gases.
Intumescent Fire Pillows can be used for creating either temporary or permanent fire barriers and are ideal for sealing cable trays and ducts that penetrate fire rated structures.
Flexible strips of high performance intumescent material encapsulated in a polythene sleeve – designed for wrapping around plastic pipes that pass through masonry floors and walls. on exposure to fire the wrap expands rapidly inwards to squeeze the collapsing plastic pipe until the aperture is completely sealed.
A unique one-pack external coating designed to give effective protection against both graffiti and flyposter attack. Astro Anti Graffiti Paint is a permanent not sacrificial system, allowing for repeated easy removal of any graffiti. Suitable for many surfaces, gives same day protection, repeat graffiti washes off with water.
Astro BSGR has been designed to remove graffiti from brick, concrete and stone, though it can be equally effective on other substrates.
Our pipe collars are manufactured from a high performance material bonded to the inside of a steel sleeve, which on exposure to heat from a fire will rapidly expand inwards to squeeze the collapsing plastic pipe until the aperture is completely sealed.
Steel, copper and plastic pipes are found in all commercial and domestic buildings. A high percentage of these pipes will penetrate through fire rated constructions such as ceilings, floors and walls. Once a hole is made in a fire rated construction for the passage of pipes or services the integrity of the compartment is compromised.
To solve this problem ASTROFLAME have a developed ASTRO Thermal Fire Pipe Sleeve, which reinstates the fire rating of the construction and prevents fire spreading from one compartment to another, and prevents copper pipes from cement erosion.
The sleeve is a cost effective product for the fire stopping of pipe penetrations e.g. Plumbing pipe and metallic pipes whilst maintaining similar thermal and acoustic properties as standard mineral fibre insulation. These properties ensure compliance to water bye laws and building regulations for cold and hot water pipes and heating systems.
