UK Boxings’ wide range of durable MDF pipe and fire sprinkler boxing has been extended further with the introduction of flame retardant (FR) sprinkler boxing, which is manufactured from Euroclass B compliant material.
The FR boxing joins the company’s existing pipe and fire sprinkler boxing range and is designed to provide a cost-effective solution for high rise flats and tower blocks where flame retardant casings for sprinkler pipework are specified.
Manufactured from 12mm thick flame retardant board, the sprinkler boxing is also FSC® chain of custody certified and available in both two-sided ‘L’ shaped and three-sided ‘U’ shaped profiles to give increased versatility when concealing sprinkler pipework installations.
Like the other boxing products in the range, FR sprinkler boxing has a white painted finish as standard, which enables it to be easily cleaned when used in flats, landings and other public areas.
Supplied in standard 2400mm lengths, FR boxings are simple and quick to install. They can be easily cut to length and drilled to fit around the individual sprinkler heads, before securing using timber battens and screws, which also allows easy access for routine inspections.
A range of dedicated accessories is also available, which includes external and internal corners, as well as stop ends and butt joints to provide and integrated finish when installed.
