ARC Open State Cavity Barrier

Open state cavity barrier for ventilated cavities

  • Reactive intumescent element

  • 25mm or 44mm air gap for ventilated cavity
  • Tested for ASFP TGD19 standards
  • Fixing brackets included as standard

Description

ARC OSCB cavity barriers are designed for installation within cavities where ventilation is required in service use. Manufactured from non-combustible rockfibre mineral wool with a reactive intumescent layer, the cavity barrier can provide an air gap of up to either 25mm or 44mm.

The intumescent layer will rapidly expand when exposed to heat in a fire event, closing off the air gap and preventing vertical fire spread within the external wall cavity.

Suitable for installation horizontally, ARC OSCB open state cavity barriers should be partnered with ARC Fire Stop Slab installed vertically for a complete cavity barrier solution.
