Passive Fireproofing – Internal/External Application
The Vermibloc® system comprises a composite cementitious system which if necessary, is combined with a steel protective sleeve assembly, factory prepared and ready for installation around services requiring protection.
A steel element is bonded to the Vermibloc® cementitious component ensuring perimeter protection to the assembly and at the same time to allow for the assembly to be dismantled for inspection/maintenance purposes. The thickness of the fireproofing system is determined from the manufacturer's schedules for the various fire resistance periods and element sizes.
Vermibloc® is manufactured to ISO 9001-2008/ ISO 14001/ OSHAS 18001 Standards. It has been tested to the relevant British, American and Australian Standards at the CSIRO’s research facilities in North Ryde. Vermibloc® contains superior fire resistance properties of up to four (4) hours.
