Whilst we hope it’s never required; passive fire protection is a critical component for fire safety in buildings. The Knauf range of framed and frameless* encasements use the high performance Knauf Fireboard or Knauf Fire Panel, with Knauf Metal profiles (for framed systems) to protect the structural steel of a building from the effects of fire. Knauf boards offer a guaranteed thickness and performance, are dry to install (no waiting for coatings to dry) and can be decorated if installed in exposed areas.
*New for 2022 - Frameless Encasement system. Using staples to fix board to board, the installation footprint of the system is reduced, whilst maintaining performance.
