Rockwool Marine and Offshore Introduces New Pipe Section for Fire Protection

In order to fulfill the new amendment to SOLAS regulation about protection of sprinkler pipes on passenger vessels, Rockwool Marine and Offshore introduces a new pipe section called Rockwool Marine Firebatts 100 PS.

The new amendment to SOLAS regulation Safe Return to Port is applicable to all passenger ships built on or after 1 July 2010 and is valid for all passenger ships with a length of over 120m or having three or more main vertical zones. This new amendment is stating that sprinkler pipes on passenger vessels need to remain operational in case of fire.

The new Firebatts 100 PS may be used not only for thermal insulation but also for fire protection according to the IMO FTP code. It also secures fire protection of steel pipes as required by IMO MSC Resolution MSC 216(82).

The pressure-resistant and non-combustible preformed pipe sections Firebatts 100 PS are supplied with reinforced aluminum foil and self-adhesive tape. By using the already approved A-60 product, normally used for bulkheads and decks, Rockwool Marine and Offshore is now offering the same protection for pipes by cutting this into pipe sections. The sections are 1,000mm long, have an inner diameter between 20mm and 60mm and are 40mm-60mm thick.
