The Firebreather® technology (FB) is a patented concept for the development of passive cavity barriers and air vents with the unique feature of blocking the spread of flames and embers instantly. The FB technology and products solve in an elegant and efficient way some problems that existing solutions are not addressing.
How does the Firebreather® technology work?
What is unique with our technology is the combination of a flame arresting element that stops flames from the first second, a heat absorbing and accumulating element that extends the flame arresting effect for up to five minutes, a thermal bridge that prevents the products from becoming too hot on the unexposed side so it doesn't ignite anything, and a grid of intumescent that completely closes the product for fire spread within a few minutes.
The combination of these elements results in stopping flames, heat, and embers from the first second and up to several hours.
Firebreather solutions applied to the key concepts of passive protection
100% passive. Our products are passive, meaning there are no moving parts, detectors, activation, or cabling.
Application areas. The FB technology can be applied in different configurations, and application areas. Our ventilated fire stopping solutions can be implemented and customized in construction, offshore installations, shipping, batteries, industry, and more.
