Quelfire Intumescent & Acoustic Putty Pads are manufactured from a mouldable, red, non-setting silicone based intumescent polymer.
The Quelfire Intumescent Acoustic Putty Pad will help with reducing the room-to-room noise transfer through socket penetrations and have been acoustic tested to BS EN ISO 140-3:1995 achieving up to 70dB reduction in standard socket configurations.
When subjected to fire, the Quelfire Intumescent Acoustic Putty Pad reacts forming a robust fi re resistant char to prevent the passage of fi re through the socket box and cable penetrations. They can be installed into sockets that are both offset or back-to-back, plastic or metal, single double or media size and in either single skin or double skin fire rated plasterboard walls as well as in conjunction with BeadMaster socket surrounds. The Quelfire Intumescent Putty Pad has been tested to the principles of BS EN1366-3 up to 120 minutes integrity and insulation. Please refer to specific installation details for specific fire ratings.

Standards & Approvals
Quelfire Acoustic Intumescent Putty Pads have been tested for fire resistance to the principles of BS EN 1366-3 and assessed to BS EN 1363-1 and provide up to 2 hour fire protection.
Quelfire Intumescent & Acoustic Putty Pads have also been tested for acoustic properties in accordance with BS EN ISO 140-3, calculated in accordance with BS EN ISO 717-1 and provided up to 70dB reduction.
Quelfire Intumescent Acoustic Putty Pads are suitable for use in both metal and plastic electric socket boxes and to suit both single and double electric socket boxes.
They can be fitted during installation of the socket boxes or as a retrofit solution. Installation is simple and requires no special tools or skills and a installation guide is available.
The simple process is: Remove the cover plate, ensure the box is dust free, remove the backing paper and mould the putty pad into the socket box ensuring the socket box is completely covered right out to the front face of the wall, trimming off any excess if required. A slit can be cut with a knife where any wires penetrate and the putty can then be resealed around the wire once fitted.
They can be installed into sockets that are both offset or back-to-back, plastic or metal, single double or media size and in either single skin or double skin fire rated plasterboard walls as well as in conjunction with BeadMaster socket surrounds. For step by step installation guide for these scenarios, please refer to the Installation Instructions.
