Composition:

The CFC Ceiling Fan Cuffs consist of a continuous pressed stainless steel flexible shell containing a high performance graphite based intumescent material which reacts under the influence of heat to exert pressure on the duct as it softens to form a carbonaceous char which provides an effective insulation plug thus preventing fire passing through to the adjoining compartment. The CFC has built in spring clips which hold it to the plasterboard ceiling.

The CFC has been tested in the scenario shown on the specific manufacturers’ fan units. The customer/installer should satisfy themselves, or consult a fire engineer that the product, test data available, standards to which the product is tested, fan units and ducting, floor/ceiling construction is applicable and satisfactory for their specific scenario as Quelfire are not able to comment on each and every scenario.
