ARC shortlisted for two awards

ARC shortlisted for two awards

15th August 2023

Innovation and safety are at the heart of what we do at ARC, so it’s a pleasure to find out we’ve been shortlisted for two categories in the RISE Awards.

Our TCB Square has been shortlisted in the Fire Safety Award AND the Innovation, Design & Creativity Award.

Being shortlisted for one award is pretty amazing, but been shortlisted for two is phenomenal!


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.
