Insulation manufacturer ROCKWOOL is set to showcase its latest fire protection solutions at FIREX 2023 which takes place from 16-18 May at ExCel London.

The company will be launching a new product, SP FireStop EN, and previewing the FirePro Detail Designer, a new tool designed to help specifiers and fire engineers access the correct ROCKWOOL standard details for their project.

Visitors to the ROCKWOOL stand (FI. 1640) will see the new SP FireStop EN product in person, alongside other FirePro fire stopping solutions as part of real wall build-ups.

Technical support from ROCKWOOL passive fire protection experts will be readily available for customers who have questions or require assistance.

Additionally, visitors can request Continuing Professional Development (CPD) sessions to gain further knowledge about the products and their applications.

SP FireStop EN

ROCKWOOL is broadening its existing FirePro® range by introducing SP FireStop EN, a linear cavity fire stopping solution that comes with a novel high emissivity black foil facing.

The new product expands the application possibilities offered by ROCKWOOL, delivering superior EI120 performance for cavities measuring up to 600mm*. The product has been subjected to rigorous testing against Steel Frame Substrates to ensure its suitability.

FirePro Detail Designer

ROCKWOOL also has plans to showcase its forthcoming FirePro Detail Designer during the show and is inviting attendees to share their thoughts on this interactive design tool, which is currently under development.

The tool is intended to aid specifiers and fire engineers in choosing the best ROCKWOOL FirePro products for their needs. By analysing project requirements, the app will suggest an appropriate specification based on a pre-existing and tested standard detail, thereby simplifying the manual process of reviewing ROCKWOOL standard details.

Paul Barrett, the Head of Product Management at ROCKWOOL UK, commented: “FIREX presents an excellent opportunity for us to present our latest passive fire protection solutions. Our priority has always been to invest in product development and enhance our current product lineup. The SP FireStop EN is an upgraded version of our existing fire stopping product, designed to provide greater emissivity and suitability for a wider range of applications.”
