The BlazeFrame™ System
The BlazeFrame™ Fire Stopping System offers contractors an innovative fire and smoke protection product for commercial buildings framed with lightweight steel. The head-of-wall system is a smoke, sound, and fire seal for static and dynamic perimeter joints, and offers up to three inches of movement capability in conjunction with wall framing materials.
BlazeFrame™ is crafted from a cured, intumescent material that is odorless and impervious to humidity, moisture, and freezing conditions. During temperatures of 375 degrees or higher, this material can expand to as much as 35 times its original size to prevent fire and heat from gaining access to the building.
Some of the advantages of the BlazeFrame™ Fire Stopping System include:
- Lowest possible L-Rating for smoke/air leakage
- Decreased noise transmission
- Increased efficiency
- Lower cost of construction
- Enhanced building safety
- Added structural support
- Elimination of caulking or spraying
- Up to 3 hour ratings
- No fatigue for substrate or joint materials
This unique fire stopping system is compatible with many different types of commercial structures, including:
- Office complexes
- Multi-family units
To best serve your commercial building needs, choose from 10 BlazeFrame™ system options.
