Morgan Advanced Materials Offers Fire Protection Materials for the HVAC Market
Morgan Advanced Materials' Thermal Ceramics Business announces the availability of its FireMaster® FastWrap® XL and FireMaster® FastDoor™ material for HVAC and grease ducts.

FireMaster FastWrap XL is a flexible blanket composed of high temperature fibers classified for applications to 2192°F (1200°C) and is supplied fully encapsulated in durable glass fiber reinforced foil facing for easy handling and installation. FastWrap XL is UL (Underwriters Laboratories Inc.) classified and ULC (Underwriters Laboratories of Canada) listed in various systems for one and two hour fire resistive enclosure protection, reduced clearance for exhaust ducts, electrical circuit protection, and as a component in various UL firestop designs for fire resistance rated floors, ceilings, and walls.

The FireMaster FastDoor XL duct access system for grease ducts provides a safe and easy way to gain access to kitchen ducts for cleaning and inspection. It comprises a UL1978-tested and listed duct access door and an ASTM E2336-tested and listed enclosure cover plate. FireMaster FastWrap and FireMaster FastDoor XL are used in a newly certified, space-saving UL-listed installation method for grease duct enclosures used in commercial construction.

"By using compression joints rather than overlap joints, this new UL-listed installation method results in space, labor, and material savings," said Clay Booth, Morgan's Fire Protection Market & Sales Manager. "The space savings are estimated at 33% compared to existing methods, offering real benefits to commercial construction projects."

TRA SNOW AND SUN - SOLAR TILE MOUNT

TRA SNOW AND SUN - SOLAR TILE MOUNT

You haven't installed a tile mount that is easier to install than the Solar Tile Mount manufactured by TRA Snow and Sun. Solar Tile Mount is used on all tile roof profiles: flat, mid, and high. It is made in the USA of aluminum alloy for strength and excellent corrosion resistance. Solar Tile Mount is built to allow more ease in installation with more rise from the tile surface to the rail for better air flow below panels. The adjustable base is longer than most allowing attachment 6" to the left or right to have the bracket in the base of the pan of the tile and still fasten to the rafter. Solar Tile Mount is adjustable for counter batten systems from ¾" to 3". The horizontal rail is directly above base fasteners giving greater uplift resistance than any other system. For superior waterproofing apply TRA Snow and Sun's butyl backed VersaFlash aluminum flashing. No tile flashing is needed on top of the tile for greater labor and material cost savings.
