JointsFire BarriersANDan expansion jointAn expansion joint is an opening within a structure, ata predetermined location, designed to absorb movementof the structure. Movement may be categorizedas follows:• Thermal - Movement by temperature changeswithin the structure. Typically, thermal movementis horizontal.• Seismic - Movements that result from earthquakeactivity or other movement of the earth, beneaththe structure. Seismic movement may be horizontal, vertical or shear, or a combination of all three.• Wind load induced - Caused by highwinds forcing the structure to sway. Windload induced movement is normally horizontalor lateral.movement Ratings?A movement rating is an attempt to categorize the anticipatedrange of horizontal change in a joint opening.For example, a 4” (100mm) nominal joint which is expectedto have a range of horizontal movement of plus2” (50mm), would be denoted as 4” +/- 50% (100mm+/-50%). Joints designed for thermal movement willtypically have a movement rating in the +/-10% to+/-25% range. Joints designed for seismic movementwill typically have a moment rating of +/-50%to +/-100%. Joints designed for wind load movementwill normally be rated as seismic.architectural joint system (AIS)?An AIS is simply a transition across an expansion jointopening, a cover, or an insert. Covers may be simplecover plates or engineered systems and inserts maybe compression seals. Many systems are engineeredto fulfill a variety of functions, some of these functionsincluding:• Fit a predetermined opening size.• Absorb building movement, thermal or seismic.• Be compatible with various surface finishes.• Support a given load. ( floor conditiononly)• Required in most multi leveled structures.Industry standard test method formovementASTM-E1399-97 standard test method for cyclic movementand measuring the minimum and maximum jointwidths of AISa fire barrierA fire barrier is a fire resistance material or structureconsisting of multiple materials that is engineered, fabricatedand certified to function as a fire barrier for adefined period of time. The integrity of the fire barrierand its ability to contain or active migration is a combinationof materials, design and installation. Factorymanufactured fire barriers significantly reduce installationerror and improve fire barrier performance. Firebarriers are:• In all floor and wall joints that occur in a fire treatedlocations. A fire barrier is of en located beneath theAIS• To prevent fire and smoke frompenetrating and expansion joint openingfor the specified rating period of time.Industrial standard testASTM E1966, UL2079, ULCS115 standard test methodsfor fire barriers testing and measure of fire ratingfor all fire barriers4.Copyright © 2013 Fireline 520 ® LLC

Furthermore, not onlydid it save us in time and labor, but in many locations, installation ofstud framing and finishes were dependent upon the installation of thefire barrier, so it was imperative that the material was installed quicklyand seamlessly as not to hold up the other trades.Again it is with great confidence and great appreciation that I say Fireline520 responded speedily, both in production and technical support,to the extraordinary needs of this project.

WATERGUARDSERIESFire barriers need to stay dry at all times!These types of fire barriers are made of materials that were tested in their dry states. NOONE HAS EVER TESTED THEIR MATERIAL WET under the fire test UL2079. In fact if youask most of the manufactures, they will tell you that their fire barriers must stay dry beforeand after they are installed or you must replace them.into the fire barrier.Fireline 520Waterguard ®SeriesMost exterior cover plates on the market today are watertight. They should not leak and most carry a 5 year warranty,However, by its nature water can find its way into thesmallest places. If they do leak, the fire barrier will mostlikely not work in a fire. Water is heavy and the fire barriermay even fall out! Because fire barriers are not visible andare not easy to inspect, it can’t be determined whether ornot they have become wet until there is a fire, then it’s toolate. A fire barrier that fails will allow smoke, poison gas,and fire to spread through a building. If you are planningto specify fire barriers on a project, ask about moisture orpossible water getting into a fire barrier over the life of thefire barrier. Interior fire barriers can get wet just by washingdown floors in hospitals and schools every night. Mostinterior cover places are not water tight and water may getWhen fire and water meet water can be a critical problem in most buildings. Fireline 520fire barriers are designed to handle water if a cover plate should leak. Fireline 520 waterguard series has a build in water protection. If a fire should start in a building with a sprinklersystem, water from a sprinkler system will flow into our water guard system. Waterin a Fireline 520 system will likely improve the fire resistance of already tested system.Smoke, poison gas and fire cannot leak through water making this fire barrier even betterin containing fire and fire related problems.18.Copyright © 2013 Fireline 520 ® LLC

FIRELINE 520theWATERGUARDSERIESOur Water Guard Series is the first passive fire barrier system that works with an activesystem. In a fire, water from the sprinkler system will flow down to the floor and into theexpansion joint. An Unprotected fire barrier will not work if it gets wet, The Water GuardSeries are designed to hold water. By adding water to the inside of a Fireline 520 fire barrier,it will only add more time to the already rated system. Most people are familiar withthe basics of the fire suppression (sprinklers, fire extinguishers, etc..) But passive fire protectionactually contains the fire at its point of origin. It can be invisible and nearly forgottenuntil the day you come to truly appreciate and depend on it.

WATERGUARDSERIESCOMMONLYAsked Q &AQ. Can I use wet fire barriers?A. No, their physical and performance characteristics have been altered.You must replace them.Q. The ends are wet, can I just cut that part off and use therest?A. No, insulation absorbs moisture. There is no physical test that can bepreformed to see how much damage was done to the fire barrier.Q. At one time my fire barriers were wet but now they are dry,are they okay to use?A. No, again, the performance and physical characteristics havebeen altered. You must replace them.Q. Are there any concerns regarding moisture and water inbarrier?A. Yes, wet fire barriers are a potential mold and mildew hazard.Q. We need to replace wet fire barriers, who do we need tocontact?A.

PassiveFire ProtectionA fire in your building could mean totaldevastation - get the facts on passive fireprotection to minimize the spread of fire inyour facilitiesSix-hundred seventy-nine (679) peoplewere injured, and 84 died, in the MGMGrand Hotel fire in 1980.What We Can Learn from History As reportedby James C. Shriver, member ofthe IFC and director of technical servicesat Wabash, IN-based Thermafiber Inc., in“Building Perimeter Fire Protection,” numerousfires, and the lives lost as a result,could have been prevented with effectivepassive fire protection. Here’s some informationhe provides about a few of themost famous U.S. fires, and how passivefire protection played a part.On Nov. 21, 1980, fire ripped throughthe MGM Grand Hotel in Las Vegas. Sixhundred seventy-nine (679) people wereinjured, and 84 died in the fire. Openingsin vertical shafts and seismic joints actedas chimneys, spreading smoke and heatall the way through the 26th floor. Guestsfound out about the fire by seeing smokeor via others who told them. The hotel’salarm system was destroyed before firealarms could activate.On May 4, 1988, a fire broke out on the 9thfloor of the First Interstate Bank Building inLos Angeles. A shrill noise coming from asmoke detector caused an employee toreset it. By then, nearly 15 minutes hadpassed before the blaze was reported tothe fire department. The fire leapfroggedto the 13th floor and threatened the 14thfloor. Smoke filled all 62 floors of the building.A maintenance employee who was investigatingthe source of the fire died in anelevator at the fire floor. Officials reportedthat the flames had spread up inside theexterior walls, where glass fiber insulationhad failed.On Dec. 6, 2004, fire raked the 29thfloor of the LaSalle Bank Building in downtownChicago. Fortunately, this historic,concrete-and-steel structure was able tocontain the fire (thanks to the use of firestopping around penetrations and claytiles protecting steel beams), and firefighters,from an adjacent rooftop, were ableto reach much of it with their hose stream.During the 6 hours of the fire, the flamesonly engaged the 29th and 30th floors.According to Shriver, “A part of what wehave learned from these fires is that theconstruction systems we specify todayhave an important role to play in the safetyof buildings and their occupants manyyears from now.”Reference:http://www.buildings.com/ArticleDetails/tabid/3321/ArticleID/5851/Default.aspx22.Copyright © 2013 Fireline 520 ® LLCwww.fireline520.com • (716) 332-4699
