ACTIFOAM foam rubber is based on the ACTIFIRE® technology, which was developed by BEELE Engineering.
The ACTIFIRE technology gives sealant materials an active and fire retardant function in the event of fire. These are sealants that when exposed to high temperatures or fire will produce new fire retardant material (in large volume).
Actifoam is designed for fire-safe penetrations of cables in building and industrial applications.
Actifoam is an expanding rubber activated by fire that fills cavities or gaps, offering a perfect fire seal that is tested to 4 hour durations. This product makes a valuable contribution towards passive fire prevention in a wide range of commercial & industrial sectors.
- Oil, Gas & Petrochemical industries
- Building, Construction and Renovation
- Civil & Utility industry
- Telecommunication & Data industry
- Power & Energy generation
The Actifoam system combines flexibility and simplicity with outstanding fire protection properties. Closed cell foam rubber sheets can be sized to suit any variety of service types passing through any size wall or floor opening.
The purpose of Actifoam technology is to ensure that during a fire the rubbers, thermoplastics and compounds used for the seal will produce such an amount of fire retardant material that major deformations or displacements in the services or structure are effectively accommodated.
As a result, the penetration will remain fire-tight. The higher the temperature, the more fire retardant material will be produced.
ACTIFOAM has a closed cell structure so that it cannot absorb any moisture. Therefore this foam rubber is not only fire resistant but also has excellent thermal insulation properties.
Actifoam has been extensively tested to guarantee low smoke and low toxic gas production, to such a high level; it has been approved for use in areas such as the London Underground and on UK submarines. Areas where low smoke and low toxicity products are a life saving necessity.
Benefits of Actifoam:
- High level of fire resistance
- Thermal protection
- Long term protection against fire and heat
- Low surface temperature
- Remains mechanically intact
- Non Fibrous
- Age tested in excess of 50 years
- Lowest Smoke and Toxicity material
