Passive Fireproofing - Internal Application
The precast units are made from Vermitex® DX or Vermiduct® fire proofing compound reinforced by wire mesh and high strength glass fibre strands.
Vitrave® has been tested to Australian as well as British standards. The base steel element is filled with Vermiduct® or Vermitex® DX. The dimensions of the unit are normally determined by the size of the fire damper in which it is to be mounted.
Vitrave® 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.
Health and Safety
As a blend of cement or gypsum and vermiculite, Vitrave® contains no asbestos and presents no known health hazard before, during or after application. Normal precautions for gypsum products apply. Glass fibre strands are of a safe size and present no health related issues.
Vitrave® has no long-term environmental effects on air, water or land. Both the product and the bag can be recycled or disposed of as landfill.
