With the introduction of two new products, FF109-250 and FF109-200, Delaware-based Tenmat now offers the first flexible, fire rated barriers for modern, low-profile recessed light fixtures.
Both models are fire tested and approved by ETL-Intertek for use in 1 hour fire resistance-rated ceilings, providing a 60 minute firestopping barrier to protect ceiling openings for recessed light fixtures from flames, smoke and heat as required by the building code.
The cone-shaped covers can be installed in seconds without the need of any special tools, or additional foams or sealants. The ultra flexible nature of the material allows the cover to get rolled up for easy retrofit, remodel or new construction installation from below the ceiling.
The unique design gives the architect, specifier and installer more freedom in fixture selection as the covers covers are suitable for most low profile LED lights, ultra-thin wafer LED recessed lights, LED recessed retrofit downlights, LED recessed ceiling light and recessed spotlight remodel kits installed in floor/ceiling or roof/ceiling assemblies (attic spaces).
In addition to their fire stopping function, Tenmat covers also exhibit excellent acoustic insulating properties, reducing the noise transmission to and from the living area.
The covers come ready-to-use and do not require any assembly, making them a smart and affordable solution for contractors to meet the building code. Once in place the covers do not require any additional maintenance and are unaffected by moisture.
Tenmat Recessed Light Covers are used in thousands of applications throughout the entire United States and Canada; from small apartments, over single-family homes to multi-family dwellings, college dormitories, hospitals, assisted-living facilities, hotels and office buildings.
