We supply soffit insulation suitable for concrete soffits for internal ceilings or semi-exposed environments such as underground carparks and basements. The solutions are available in a range of thicknesses and facing, and offer excellent thermal and acoustic performance, as well as specific products being non-combustible, and fire rated.
Neville White, Business Development Director for Fire Protection states: “As noted in the BRE Article, Fires in Enclosed Car Parks, there are not many significant underground car park fires, which is testament to the manufacturers whose products have been used and the contractors who have installed them.
The issue with a number of these lining systems, however, is that they will not actually provide any fire protection to the concrete soffit. Building Regulations today do not state that soffit linings need to be fire rated, but in order to keep building users safe, it should be considered or better still included in Approved Document B.”
The soffit insulation we supply are manufactured by leading insulation brands who offer fire rated glass or rock mineral wool slabs and Class 0 rigid phenolic boards, designed to provide a robust faced solution to your project.
