FIRE PROOFING

Hi Guys,

Today’s blog post is a product review on both Putty Pads and Inserts (single & double) one of our top sellers at fix factory.  See the rest of the fire proofing products we stock here at fixfactory.ie

Putty Pads

Etag putty pads are an easily applied fire and sound rated sealant.  This type of pad is hand workable, reuseable and reserviceable due to the non-setting properties it features.  Easy installation on first or second fixings and excellent acoustic properties, are two of its many benefits.  The protection it features will prevent the passage of smoke, flames, sound and air movement through the electrical socket.  They provide up to 120 minutes fire resistance and featuring excellent acoustic properties, they achieve full fire performance without additional insulation between the studs.  The putty pads come supplied in a cross shape for internal installation in a socket or a switch box.  See here at fixfactory.ie

Fire Socket Inserts

The fire socket inserts we supply offer maximum protection for penetrations created by the introduction of both single & double inserts and also to allow ease of fitting.  In a situation where a fire occurs, the inserts expand internally to fill all of the available space.  These inserts work when fitted back to back in uninsulated walls and can be retro fitted to existing sockets or fitted during the wall construction.  Also suitable for insulated and uninsulated plasterboard partitions.  See here at fixfactory.ie

Door Frame Protection

These particular frames are designed to clip around existing door frames to protect the surfaces from any impact damage.  Installation and removal of protection frames are quick and easy.  In comparison to other frames out there, these lightweight frames would be the best option as other frames can be more rigid which result in potential material scratching.

Floor Protection

Protection Boards

CADDY TELESCOPIC STUD RAIL

Hi Guys,

It is almost the end of the working week again and with that comes our latest blog post.

Today’s blog is focused on the unique, one piece Caddy Telescopic Stud Rail.  This easy to assemble stud rail can be found here at etagfixings.ie or fixfactory.ie .

The telescopic stud rail is adjustable for non-standard stud spacing.  It can be mounted in two different ways either to the face or inside a stud.

The easy installation is an aspect which we all want to hear whilst undertaking a job.  All that is required for this is a screw gun.  See here at fixfactory.ie.  Telescopic stud rails are priced individually, so it lets you ordr the exact amount you need for a job.

As suppliers here at Etag, we know first-hand that it boasts many benefits.  The overall design of the stud rail has been improved enormously with stamped markings and pilot holes.  The stamped markings naturally make for easier identification whilst carrying out a job.  Also designed specially to allow for easier bending whilst using.  The pilot holes allow for easy socket / electrical box attachment with a screwdriver.  It features an interlocking tab which prevents any accidental disassembling occuring.  When used with flexible or rigid conduit or pre-wired cable systems, this in turn reduces movement of the box.

Have you any other further questions in regards to this, our team are more than happy to help.
