Promat provided a full portfolio of products and specialist technical support and advice on the design of the passive fire protection system for this substantial office development.

At the time, the developments represented the largest speculative office development undertaken in the City of London, creating 800,000 sqft of new office space.

A number of products from the PROMASEAL® fire stopping range were used to seal gaps around services in walls, partitions and floors including PROMASEAL® Fire Barrier, Intumescent Acrylic Sealant, Pipewrap and Fire Compound Extra Strength.

The PROMASEAL® range has been independently fire tested to provide up to 240 minutes fire protection as part of a passive fire protection system.

The importance of sealing any gaps in fire resisting constructions is vital to ensure the system works to its optimum ability in order to save life and property. Such gaps are typically found where services penetrate walls and floors, but could also include gaps left for structural movement.

In addition, Promat supplied fire protection materials to protect the building’s structural steelwork and SUPALUX® to protect the building’s lift shafts. DURASTEEL® was also used for impact fire rated ducting.
