FyreBOX for Builders And Developers
Wed, 28th Aug 2019
Providing an easily certifiable and visibly compliant passive fire penetration system, a Trafalgar FyreBOX™ system has many benefits for any builder or developer.
Trafalgar’s FyreBOX™ systems reduce the space required for fire proofing service penetrations, allowing more flexibility for design and creating more available net floor areas for use, therefore increasing sale value.
Trafalgar’s FyreBOX™ system is acoustically rated for RW50 when installed above ceilings to comply with Section F5.5 of the NCC 2019. Trafalgar’s unique, high quality intumescent foam plugs not only protect from smoke and fire, they also serve as acoustic protection, which is crucial for apartments, nursing homes and hotels.
Streamlined co-ordination of trades
Co-ordinating trades on site can be a handful, so imagine if you had the penetration systems built into the walls and floors that provide what is essentially a ‘fire rated hole’ so all the trades need to do is run their services as they were trained to do?
Whether mounting the FyreBOX Slab-Mounted on to the ceiling slab above apartment entry or casting in the FyreBOX Cast-In onto the formwork, Trafalgar FyreBOX systems are fast, quick and easy to install for any trades person. Trafalgar provides comprehensive training and reference videos to ensure that the installs are completed correctly, avoiding compliance issues.
Compliance made visible
With over 100 hours of recorded fire testing to strict Australian standards (AS1530.4-2014) Trafalgar’s orange FireBOX range of products are easy for certifiers to locate, identify and certify. Trafalgar’s FyreBOXes have been tested completely full of services and completely empty, so the fire assessment report allows for any quantity or configuration of approved services to be run in each FyreBOX.
Trafalgar have engaged an accredited laboratory (BRANZ) to collate all testing into one neat, easy to read fire assessment report that complies with NCC requirements as set out in clause C3.15.
This document outlines the tested wall/floor barriers, lists the tested services, and states the FRL’s of the system. For a copy of the report please contact the Trafalgar technical department at [email protected].
Less documentation required
Having a building designed with Trafalgar’s FyreBOX™ systems will reduce the documentation required for handover, as a single FyreBOX™ can do the job of 5-10 separate penetration systems - only without the defects!
