Ampelite FS Firecheck

Fire is one of the most significant hazards at commercial facilities. Accidental fires or natural fires such as bushfires can cause significant damage to a building’s structure and incur heavy losses. With the use of a fire-resisting roofing and cladding material such as FS Firecheck, this damage can be hugely reduced.

It Can Take the Heat

The Ampelite FS Firecheck is a highly effective fire-proof fibreglass roof cladding material.

It is manufactured so that intumescent glass tissue is incorporated into the fibre structure.

This ensures that FS Firecheck not only does not catch fire, it also serves as a barrier against the spread of a fire. It also doesn’t produce any smoke when exposed to fire.

 

Unlike many other fire-retardant fibreglass varieties, Firecheck does not use Bromine which becomes toxic when exposed to fire. As a result, Firecheck is incredibly safe, environment-friendly and effective against fire hazards.

It offers superior UV protection with excellent light transmission and resistance to discolouration when exposed to sunlight. FS Firecheck can also be customised to incorporate other properties such as resistance to chemicals.

You can choose from a variety of profiles to exactly match a building’s metal cladding and roofing profile.

FS-Firecheck

The FS FireCheck comprises an intumescent impregnated glass tissue which is manufactured within the Ampelite sheeting. The chemicals are halogen-free meaning they are nontoxic. The simplicity of the approach to using the tissue and locating it at the surface of the sheet results in no loss of strength or stiffness within the composite section.

Clearslide

The patented ClearSlide fixing clips provide many advantages over normal installation procedures and also allow the combination of metal roll form decking and fibreglass skylighting over long lengths. No longer are two very different materials screwed together in the hope that they will interact, without water ingress, or cause buckling (ocean waving) of the fibreglass
