Product Information


The frames are constructed from Zintec Mild Steel (0.65mm thick) containing high performance graphite based intumescent material which reacts under the influence of heat to form a carbonaceous char which provides an effective insulation plug thus preventing smoke and fire passing through to the adjoining compartment.


QIG Intumescent Air Transfer Grilles are expected to last the lifetime of the service installation.
