Hush-Mesh Firewire is used in conjunction with Hush-Slab 100 Sound Absorber, to create a 1 hour fire resistance at ceiling level. Hush-Mesh Firewire enables work to be carried out from above in situations where the appropriate fire resistance cannot be applied to the ceiling side of the separating floor.
For advice on the use of Hush-Mesh Firewire, as part of a system within any project, please contact our experienced technical team on 0151 933 2026 who will be happy to give comprehensive and practical advice to meet with your requirements.

Working at 90 degrees to the direction of the joists, roll out the first length of firewire and start to form trays by dressing it down the side of the first joist, across the back of the ceiling, up the side and over the top of the next joist. Continue forming trays across the widths of the joist span, overlapping the edges of each row, ensuring there are no gaps. Fix the firewire to the sides and tops of the joists using 16mm staples or similar.
