The A. Proctor Group, renowned for providing high-quality membrane solutions for controlling the heat, air and moisture movement in buildings (HAMM), is delighted to announce that its Fireshield® vapour-permeable membrane has been awarded a British Board of Agrément Certificate.

Fireshield® is the culmination of leading research to produce a vapour-permeable membrane with a fire-proof surface, which is designed specifically to improve the fire protection behind cladding.

The BBA Certificate confirms that Fireshield® has enhanced performance in relation to reaction to fire classification, will reduce the risk of interstitial condensation, and will have a life equal to that of the building in which it is installed. The endorsement by the UK’s leading construction certification body will provide architects, contractors and specifiers with full assurance that the product has been tested to meet the highest industry standards.

Fireshield® has a unique intumescent composition that actively reacts to prevent fire taking hold. This unique coating extinguishes fire rather than just resisting it, and significantly reduces the formation of droplets and smoke.

Fireshield® complies with BS5250, BS4016 and NHBC requirements for vapour-permeable walling underlays. It is installed and fixed to the substrate in the same manner as standard breather membranes using mechanical fixings.

Applications include both commercial and residential buildings including apartments and student accommodation, as well as rainscreen cladding and applications over 18m high.
