CS-Steel Fire Guard

Applications
Steel Protection, Ventilation and smoke extract ducts, Mechanical & electrical service enclosures, Service enclosures, Cable protection.

Materials
CS-Fire Guard is a non-combustible medium density calcium silicate board, tested in accordancw with ASTM E136. It is used for the construction of passive fire protection.

Resistant to termite, mould and fungus
The panel is not weakened when wet. The high PH value makes the board very resistant to attack by fungi and moulds. The panel cannot rot or degrade in a humid environment or be attacked by termites.

Fastening and Fixing
Screws & Nails can be driven directly through boards, without pre-drilling provided they are at least 1/2“ from the edge of the panel, and the back side of the board is fully supported. In areas of high humidity, galvanised nails should be used. Panel pins, oval or lost head nails should not be used. Nails should be located min 3/4” from corners. Nailing is the most economical method of fastening using pneumatic nailing and stapling equipment.

Cutting
The panel can be worked with conventional electrical woodworking equipment. Cutting should be carried out using dust extractors. Operators should wear protective face masks.
