AIM Partition Head Barrier is made from foil faced high density rock wool and provides a fire barrier above fire rated metal frame partitions, fire rated timber partitions and masonry walls.
In a fire situation a partition may bow appreciably due to the heat of the fire on one side with the result that the partition head may move laterally to a significant degree. AIM Partition Head Barrier is supplied with a clip system to prevent the possibility of it being dislodged and therefore ineffective in a fire situation. For voids over 250mm link straps are supplied in addition to clips in order to restrain lateral movement of the partition head.
Partition Head Barrier is used where the gap is greater than 100mm, for gaps 100mm or less, use AIM Fire Stop Strip.
Two clips are inserted into the base of each 1200mm length of AIM Partition Head Barrier. The barrier is push fitted into place and it must fit tightly and completely; the clips are then screwed to the top of the partition or wall.
The Barrier must be compressed by about 5% when installed. The maximum void size is 600mm. Where the gap exceeds 250mm, the top of the partition or wall must be securely fixed, by steel fixings, to the soffit at 600mm centres, using steel link straps (see diagram).
