Morgan Thermal Ceramics Offers Fire Protection Materials for the HVAC Market
Morgan Thermal Ceramics announces the availability of its FireMaster® FastWrap® XL and FireMaster® FastDoor™ material for HVAC and grease ducts.
FireMaster FastWrap XL is a flexible blanket composed of high temperature fibers classified for applications to 2192°F (1200°C) and is supplied fully encapsulated in durable glass fiber reinforced foil facing for easy handling and installation. FastWrap XL is UL (Underwriters Laboratories Inc.) classified and ULC (Underwriters Laboratories of Canada) listed in various systems for one and two hour fire resistive enclosure protection, reduced clearance for exhaust ducts, electrical circuit protection, and as a component in various UL firestop designs for fire resistance rated floors, ceilings, and walls.
The FireMaster FastDoor XL duct access system for grease ducts provides a safe and easy way to gain access to kitchen ducts for cleaning and inspection. It comprises a UL1978-tested and listed duct access door and an ASTM E2336-tested and listed enclosure cover plate. FireMaster FastWrap and FireMaster FastDoor XL are used in a newly certified, space-saving UL-listed installation method for grease duct enclosures used in commercial construction.
“By using compression joints rather than overlap joints, this new UL-listed installation method results in space, labor, and material savings,” said Clay Booth, Morgan Thermal Ceramics’ Fire Protection Market & Sales Manager. “The space savings are estimated at 33% compared to existing methods, offering real benefits to commercial construction projects.”
