The commitment towards protecting both people and buildings from fire takes Nullifire, our sister brand from Tremco CPG UK, once again one-step further in its fire stopping product offering, with the launch of a new safe space to stop fire spread!
Cavity barriers have been in high demand due to their role and importance in safeguarding buildings. These passive fire protection products are made of fire-resistant materials, and are used to seal cavities, preventing the spread of flames and smoke through spaces within the cavities of the building.
This process slows the spread of a fire, increasing the time people are able to evacuate the building and allowing the fire fighters to get the fire under control on a faster time frame, thus reducing the damage to the building.
New to the Cavity Barrier portfolio are the following products:
FV025 and FV050 are ventilated cavity barriers suited to open state cavities of up to 25 mm and 50 mm, offering up to 60 and 120 minutes fire resistance. Their unique graphite expansion technology provides directionality and a high expansion ratio, with low smoke and zero halogen intumescent components.
Also, part of the range is FV125, FV225 and FV144; the large ventilated cavity barriers. These are a specially formulated fire rated mineral fibre with an integral high expansion intumescent seal attached to the leading edge. For cavities up to 450 mm, these can offer up to 180 minutes fire resistance tested in accordance with ASFP TGD19 Guidance.
FV065 is a cavity barrier roll designed to firestop cavities up to 65 mm behind external walls. Suitable for masonry and brickwork external substrates, its roll format allows for space and labour savings.
Lastly, FJ260 Cavity Barrier, is the non-ventilated fire barrier within the range. This product is used for vertical external wall cavities and can achieve up to 120 minutes fire resistance. FJ260 is the only product that has testing with SFS (steel frame system) systems.
These new additions represent an important step in Nullifire’s approach to supplying the complete fire stopping system and solutions for the external envelope of a building, which help support the increasing demands for supply chain efficiencies and certified fire protection solutions.
Nullifire products are used extensively across built environments alongside illbruck, namely for façade systems. Our single source approach guarantees highly knowledgeable technical support and service teams with a proven track record of performance and compliant systems, to ensure the ultimate peace of mind in the specification process. Both Nullifire and illbruck's support team across the UK will be available to provide guidance and answer any technical and specification enquiries!

Breather membranes are an important part of the building envelope, as they protect the wall element and in particular the insulation layer from wind-driven rain and water exposure during the construction phase of the project.
A breathable (vapour permeable) membrane can provide protection against the elements when applied to the exterior side of the construction. Breather membranes, such as ME010 from illbruck...
