A 30-storey Woods Bagot-designed KODO Apartments in Adelaide has purchased several products from fire protection specialists Promat Australia.

The apartment block is set to be one of the tallest residential towers in Adelaide, which has designed for residents to experience inner city living while having the privacy enjoyed outside of business districts, AD Australia reported.

Promat was involved early in the project, supplying CAFCO 300 vermiculite spray to provide adequate fire protection to the steel structure. Once the service trades commenced work, Promat penetration seals PROMASTOP UniCollar, PROMASEAL FlexiWrap and PROMASEAL acrylic sealant were used to seal fire rated wall penetrations.

Finally, PROMASEAL bulkhead batts, PROMASEAL fire pillows, PROMASEAL SupaWrap and Promat’s latest innovation, PROMASHIELD were used to seal electrical penetrations in the building’s main riser and provide a complete firestopping solution.

PROMASHIELD was selected for its ease of installation, with no wrapping, strapping or taping required.
