Floor Fire Barrier Systems - MetaBlock®

MetaBlock® Fire Barrier combines impressive 2, 3 and 4 hour UL® listed designs with the absolute simplest installation method available for floor and wall expansion joint applications. Its thin design allows for installation in shallow concrete, block and gypsum board construction allowing ample space for installation of expansion joint covers without interference of waterproof construction. There are no mechanical fasteners or caulk required for installation or splicing.

Floor Fire Barrier Systems - MetaMat®

MetaMat® Fire Barrier is designed to fire rate seismic and expansion joint conditions for up to 2 hours in floor and wall applications. The very thin unique profile allows for installation in small openings and is forgiving in instances where the field condition does not match design drawings. Installation is simple because no caulk is required for floors, walls, splices or transitions of any kind.
