Timbeco, the manufacturer of prefab timber frame elements, introduced the innovative fire barrier solution FB Securo in ventilation openings.
It is a fire barrier solution using intumescent materials. By expanding when exposed to heat, Securo FB restricts fire and smoke from spreading to ventilation openings. Securo fire barrier solution can be used, for example, in timber roof and facade construction.
Tests and examinations have shown that Securo is more effective and reliable than regular fire barrier solutions. In prefab timber frame element construction, especially prefab timber frame element facade construction, where the ventilation opening may speed up the spread of fire, an effective solution has not been found to date. Timbeco installed the FB Securo fire barrier solution shown in the photo in the bay window modules of apartments buildings in Finland.
