Fire Protection

Fire Protection

Ancon shear connectors can be provided with a fire rating of 120 mins (REI 120) as per EN 13501-2. Special sleeves, manufactured from a fire barrier material, replace the compressible filler at the connector’s position in the joint. This material foams and expands during a fire to protect the connector.

Fire protection sleeves are supplied in a thickness of 10, 20 and 30mm to fit the respective joint thickness. Sleeves of different thicknesses can be used together for larger joints. The hole or holes in the sleeve are supplied to suit the connector’s dowel diameter. The air gap width should not exceed 10mm.
