Creating award-winning products is something that’s important at ARC.
We like to make sure we continually innovate and lead the market with our products.
The Structural Timber Awards have shortlisted our TCB Square in the Product Innovation Category.
We know our TCB Square is at the forefront of innovation so it’s amazing to know the panel at the Structural Timber Awards think so too!
Our TCB Square is designed to act as a cavity barrier around penetrations through the external wall of low rise houses. Exceeding Part B’s requirement for EI30/15, ARC TCB Square is faster and easier to install, and provides a more robust solution, compared with either boxing in using cut sections of linear cavity barrier, or wrapping linear barriers around the pipe. ARC TCB Square is not a penetration seal or “fire stop” and does not replace the requirement for this where it exists, for example an intumescent pipe wrap. ARC TCB Square is designed to perform the function of a cavity barrier around openings in the wall.
