STARC Systems, a manufacturer of temporary modular wall containment solutions used for occupied renovations and infection isolation, today unveiled FireblockWall™, the first modular reusable one-hour fire-rated temporary containment system. STARC will begin taking orders in June with deliveries starting in early summer.
Benefits of FireblockWall include:
- Stops fires, keeping patients, staff and visitors safe in healthcare environments.
- Fast installation with minimal labor, two laborers can install a 10’ x 15’ corner room in 90 minutes, which is an estimated 4 times faster than traditional drywall, plus no taping, mudding, sanding, painting or clean up.
- Designed to meet NFPA 101 or IBC code, a fire-rated wall must be constructed from the floor to the deck above. With its perimeter tracks, specially designed panels including pre-designed negative air panels and doors and supporting components, FireblockWall meets the requirements of a one-hour fire-rated listed assembly when installed to spec.
- Superior noise-blocking, with an STC rating of 40, this is 65% quieter than any other temporary containment system.
