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
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

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.
Head restraints allow for vertical movement of blocks which can then accommodate shrinkage or thermal movement of the structural frame or wall of a buildings structure. Etag head restraints provide the required restraint to the top of any wall.

The Metfix concealed internal head restraint (otherwise known as MT HR1), is concealed within wall construction. It is a two part tie which provides a positive fixing into the bed joint.
So, here goes, this is Etag’s first blog post so we are very excited.

All questions, queries and suggestions you may have are welcomed.
So for this blog post, we are going to do a product review for you. From our wonderful suppliers Geocel’s range, we stock the highly recommended Airblock Flexible Foam.
See here at etag.ie or fixfactory.ie . Airblock comes packaged in a 750ml can and boxed in 12’s. This foam creates a highly effective air tight barrier to help air seal buildings. You may ask how it differs from other foams in its field, well Airblock foam hits all those nooks and crannies that are hard to reach. It fills voids and seals which in return, results in providing a huge improvement to energy efficiency.
This Airblock foam boasts many benefits some of which include; it forms an airtight and water resistant flexible seal, has a temperature resistance of -40 to +100 and is fire and acoustic rated. One of the best aspects of Airblock foam is that it can be used in conjunction with most common materials like; wood, brickwork, concrete, stone, plaster, metal and plastic surfaces. So it is not specific to just one material (a huge benefit we think) .
That is all for now, hope this helped. Catch Etags next blog post Tuesday.
