Performance

Fire

Under fire conditions, the Quelfire Intumescent & Acoustic Putty Pad expands to fill the void left by the burnt out electrical socket box, preventing the spread of fire through the plasterboard wall.

Liquids

Quelfire Intumescent & Acoustic Putty Pads are unaffected by moisture.

Acoustic

The Quelfire Intumescent & Acoustic Putty Pads can also be used for upgrading the acoustic performance of partitions where electrical socket boxes penetrate the wall reducing the room-to-room noise transfer.

Durability

Quelfire Intumescent & Acoustic Putty Pads are expected to last the lifetime of the service installation.

Application / installation


Firstly, the face plate of the electrical socket box should be removed. All surfaces must be clean, free from dirt, grease and other contamination. Then remove the backing paper from one side of the pad and insert the pad into the socket back box so that the pad completely covers the back and sides. Make a slit to allow the wires to pass through the pad. The face plate should then be replaced and secured back to the socket box. Quelfire Acoustic Intumescent Putty Pads are suitable for sealing both single and double socket boxes.
