Fire Rated Exhaust Ducts

FireMaster® FastWrap® XL is purpose developed flexible encapsulated insulation wrap designed for the fire protection of ductwork within all types of buildings meeting various international and national building code and fire test standard performance requirements.

Fire rated exhaust ducts in buildings are insulated to prevent fire spread within a building through the duct or to ensure the duct function is maintained when exposed to a fire. Fire may occur either inside or outside the duct. Stringent fire tests exist worldwide to prove the effectiveness of ductwork fire insulation systems.
