KBS Fir-A-Flex is a permanently elastic fire protective sealing system for linear gaps.
KBS Fir-A-Flex can be used for all kinds of wall connection and expansion joints.
KBS Fir-A-Flex is officially tested and approved.
KBS Fir-A-Flex is a sandwich element consisting of KBS Foam and Antardan 706, which in the case of fire does not melt, but rather decomposes without flames.
KBS Fir-A-Flex is available for fire resistance up to 240 minutes.
KBS Fir-A-Flex can be applied for gap widths over 10mm.
KBS Fir-A-Flex allows for movements of gaps up to 60%.
KBS Fir-A-Flex can be installed on one side or both sides of the gaps.
KBS Fir-A-Flex is resistant to water and various chemicals.
KBS Fir-A-Flex does not change its properties through ageing.
KBS Fir-A-Flex is physiologically harmless and odorless.
KBS Foam is a permanently elastic material.
Antardan 706 is a highly flexible, water-resistant, intumescent material. In response to fire it generates foam having a very low flame erosion rate.
Where it is possible for water to penetrate into the gap, we generally recommend the combination of KBS Fir-A-Flex with Neocosal Coating 456 and Antardan 501 respectively to preserve the elasticity of the sandwich element (see installation recommendations below).
KBS Fir-A-Flex is supplied in element lengths of 120 cm/ piece, packed in cartons.
