U PROTECT® HVAC fire solutions

Systems for passive fire protection of ducts and pipes

Passive fire protection of metal ducts, different pipes and penetrations is the perfect way to ensure fire safety of ventilation and smoke extraction ducts and pipework accross your building. ISOVER offers solutions with ULTIMATE mineral wool that provides fire resistance to metal ductwork and pipes and penetrations while meeting thermal and acoustic requirements.

ISOVER fire resistant duct
The fire resistance of a building component is a measure of the time during which it is able to fulfill conditions of stability, prevent the passage of flames and smoke and minimise the temperature rise. This requirement is particularly important where ducts or pipe passes through separating walls designed to be fire compartments. The final target is to give enough time to building occupants to exit the building in case of fire.

For this application, ISOVER has developed ULTIMATE PROTECT (U Protect), a unique system based on innovative ULTIMATE mineral wool, and other components as screws, tape, glue and paint, which offer:
  • Optimum fire resistance times for ductwork and pipes (up to 120min)
  • Lightweight (up to 70% times lighter than conventional solutions)
  • Easy installation
  • Aesthetics of final installation with a black facing
U Protect Slab is used for rectangular ducts whereas U Protect Wired Mat can be used for both rectangular and circular ducts. U Protect Pipe Sections are used to protect pipework and penetrations. All the products are  made out of  biosoluble material and safe to use.
