FabBloc60A, a high performance, lightweight fire and insulation barrier system designed to protect railway carriage flooring, will make its world debut at the InnoTrans 2014 Exhibition in Berlin next month.
Unrivalled 60 minutes fire protection
FabBloc60A stops the transfer of heat from its source to the underside of the aluminium decking or floor. In a fire situation the exterior coating reacts and expands forming a char which blocks the passage of fire and heat, offering unrivalled fire protection and insulation of over 60 minutes from a fire beneath an aluminium railway carriage floor.
Supplied by SCG Solutions, the rail division of Tinsley Bridge Group, FabBloc60A combines lightweight advanced materials with the very latest technology in thin film fire protection coatings and aerospace innovation thermal barrier fabrics.
The FabBloc lightweight inner layer is a 100% aramid fibre yarn, in a non-woven blanket form that absorbs the heat, keeping the upper decking cool and reducing heat transfer to the floor above.
Held at the Messe Berlin in Germany from 23-26 September, InnoTrans 2014 is the International Trade Fair for Transport Technology. SCG Solutions are located on the Rail Industry Showcase stand in Hall 26. For more information about InnoTrans 2014 visit www.innotrans.de/en/
