FV060 is a graphite impregnated rubber-based product, encapsulated within a polythene carrier. Both the encasement and the inner product are waterproof and UV resistant. The product remains dormant unless exposed to a fire situation. FV060 is capable of closing a ventilated cavity air gap of varying sizes within its specified capabilities. It is lightweight and requires no maintenance when installed to our instructions and recommendations.
Rainscreen cladding systems are designed to allow free air flow and the drainage of moisture, whilst preventing damp and mould growth. FV060 is designed for use within ventilated facade systems that have been tested and proven to achieve a suitable performance to a relevant local standard (e.g. BS 8414/BS 9414) and has been deemed suitable for perimeter cladding within the relevant building design code. FV060 will, in the event of a fire, completely close the system’s required air space, and prevent the passage of fire and hot smoke and gazes within the cavity areas defined by the specification, and therefore reinstate the compartment line to the exterior of the building.
Always read SDS, pre-application guidance and relevant application detail prior to application. Ensure the latest documents are downloaded prior to every project commencement.
Reduction of free air flow space is permitted by the FV060. Increase of the free air flow width above the maximum capability of the FV060 is not permitted. If the gap width exceeds the product capability, use FV100 Ventilated Façade Large Cavity Closer if possible or reduce the gap width using a non-combustible board. The integrity and insulation rating of this product cannot exceed the capability of the surrounding substrates. Fixings should be located centrally through the depth of the product +/-5mm to centre line. Corner details: if the air space increases on external corners, please contact Tremco CPG UK Technical Services. If services pass through the compartment lines, please contact Tremco CPG UK Technical Services.
