Fire stop system cuts installation

ClarkDietrich Building Systems' BlazeFrame is a steel framing fire stop system with 2-mm-thick cured intumescent material that adheres to metal profiles and provides air, smoke and sound seals. When exposed to heat above 375 F, the intumescent material expands up to 35 times its size, which provides protection from heat and flame passage during a fire event. Designs with BlazeFrame assemblies eliminate caulks, sprays, drywall rips and contour drywall castle cuts throughout the joint systems.
