Description

Maxilite is a lightweight, high-performance fire-rated board. Maxilite is a calcium silicate-based product and is bonded together with non-organic binders. It is completely free from asbestos, volatile organic compounds (VOC’s), and ozone-depleting potential (ODP). Maxilite is an extremely effective insulating refractory board. The board is stable under high-temperature stress and remains strong and free of cracks, even when exposed to fully developed fires.

Due to the lightweight construction of the board, Maxilite is easy to handle and work with, ensuring quick onsite installation, whilst retaining suitable fire performance. Maxilite’s high fire performance ensures minimal thicknesses are required, hence less material usage and cost.

Applications:

Where concrete slabs, walls or beams are poured too thin or don’t have enough cover over reo-bars to comply with AS3600 requirements for fire design, FyreBOARD Maxilite® provides a lightweight board option that is perfect for upgrading these non-compliant concrete structures, without adding lots of weight compared with spray and plasterboard systems. FyreBOARD Maxilite® is a lightweight high-performance fire rated board available in 30mm, 40mm and 60mm thicknesses and as an added benefit is compatible with approved service penetrations without any fire-engineered solutions required.

FyreBOARD Maxilite® has been approved for use as a compliant penetration system to fix to the soffit of a concrete slab to protect services that feed into floor mounted switch boxes, such are commonplace in board-rooms and schools. This system also provides a compliant system to seal PVC conduits that are cast-into the concrete floor and exit at through soffit of the slab. Services that pass through the FyreBOARD Maxilite® in this configuration can be sealed with FyreFLEX® sealant (for cables) and continuous PVC conduits may be treated by installing a retrofit FyreCOLLAR fixed into the FyreBOARD Maxilite® as shown in the installation drawings in the below technical manual.
