ROCKWOOL’s SP FireStop System is a purpose-made solution for cavity fire stopping. Forming part of the system, the SP/XL FireStop Fixing Brackets play an important role in securing the fire prevention slabs, when used in cladding, curtain walling and masonry wall cavities.
The ROCKWOOL SP FireStop System has been created to maintain essential fire compartmentation. As a one-piece system, it is designed to form cavity fire stops within buildings and provide critical resistance. The slabs form part of a special fireproof insulation solution offering a unique lateral compression to facilitate a close fit between substrates within masonry or curtain wall constructions. ROCKWOOL SP/XL FireStop Fixing Brackets are supplied for cavity widths up to 600mm. The brackets are supplied in cardboard boxes of 50 pieces, flat packed and designed to be easily re-profiled by hand during construction. To ensure compliance with the fire test certification, SP/XL FireStop Fixing Bracket must be used to install the product as they are specifically designed to maintain the 2 hours fire resistance in cavities up to 600m. The ROCKWOOL SP/XL FireStop Fixing Brackets can be re-profiled by hand and cut as necessary to allow at least 75% penetration of the fire stop material. This is when the SP FireStop Slabs are cut on site, with a sharp knife or saw and a straight edge. The SP/XL FireStop Fixing Brackets should be placed as shown in the technical datasheet or fixed by other suitable mechanical means.

- Easy on-site use – the SP/XL FireStop Fixing Brackets are designed to be re-profiled by hand, during construction.
