One Hours Fire Integrity - Free
Cavity Trays of Yeovil has announced the withdrawal of its’ fire rated loft hatch with a fire integrity rating of one hour.
In its place Cavity Trays is offering a high performance two-hour rated version, at no additional cost.
‘Whilst a one hour rated hatch is adequate in most applications, we believe this cost-attractive higher specification model will appeal’ commented a Company spokesman. ‘The hatch has been independently tested and has achieved a two-hour rating, but is being offered at exactly the same price as versions offering half the protection’.
Providing additional protection is not new to the Yeovil-based Company.
It recently upgraded many of its acoustic and fire-rated caviclosers, and now offers many styles with integrity ratings of up to four hours.
Similarly it has altered the shape of its horizontal cavity sock/closer that is manufactured with sloping upper and lower surfaces.
Unlike conventional rectangular cavity socks, the Type SAF version from Cavity Trays cannot act as a bridge for water to reach an inner skin, as the sloping surface always directs water forward.
‘It promotes a more reliable build detail and overcomes many installation shortcomings’ commented its spokesman.
