Aico Firecap Socket / Switch Box Inserts

Aico has launched its latest addition to the Firecap passive fire protection products range: Firecap Socket / Switch Box Inserts. The new Inserts have been designed to prevent fire, heat and noise from spreading through recessed switches and sockets.

When a hole is cut in a wall for a socket or switch box, the fire stopping capability of that wall is detrimentally effected, allowing fire to pass through. The hole also leads to heat loss and air leakage into the wall cavity.
Fitting a Firecap Socket / Switch Box Insert provides a highly effective fire stopping seal for up to two hours and minimises heat and air loss.

Firecap Socket / Switch Box Inserts have been independently tested to BS EN 1364- 1 and to the principles of BS EN 1363-1:1999 and shown to offer two hours integrity and insulation.

As well as providing quality fire protection, Firecap Socket / Switch Box Inserts provide an effective acoustic barrier to both impact and airborne sounds. They can be used in wall systems up to and including 67db sound reduction without loss of the wall performance.

Firecap Socket / Switch Box Inserts are simple and quick to install and don't require the use of adhesives. They are also highly cost effective, replacing the need for expensive plasterboard lining or putty pads.

Firecap Socket / Switch Box Inserts can be used with metal and plastic single and double socket boxes in both 35mm and 47mm depths. They are rot proof and maintenance free.
