Curtain wall connections or anchor points located beneath the floor slab can be subjected to direct fire exposure that can compromise their integrity. The UL Guide Information for Category XHDG, Perimeter Fire-Containment Systems has included general specifications for the protection of exposed curtain wall anchor points. Due to the lack of specific test data, the protection recommendations were somewhat vague leaving interpretation to project decision makers and/or local authorities having jurisdiction (AHJ)…until now.
Now a whole new category has been created by UL® to more clearly define what constitutes an acceptable level of anchor protection. In turn, STI Firestop has developed an entirely new category of accessories for use in perimeter fire-containment systems to protect undermount anchors. The creation of SpecSeal® CP1OO represents another industry first and is now the Only UL® Certified System for protecting undermount curtain wall connections.
SpecSeal® CP1OO delivers visual protection with compliance you can see, taking the guesswork out of application and inspection. Eliminate headaches, delays and uncertainty from improperly installed firestop materials. Ensure measurable performance and a predictable outcome with the failsafe installation of the only UL® Certified system for protecting undermount anchors.
Patented molded design encapsulates framing Connections for optimal anchor insulation that provides superior heat resistance during a fire.
The SpecSeal® CP1OO is made with a refractory ceramic material that include a proprietary intumescent technology, coupled with a compressible, low shrinkage, fiber blanket. Its patented design withstands 2 hours of fire exposure without breaking down, protecting and insulating the aluminum anchor to maintain the integrity of the connection.
