Curtain Walls.
SPANDREL PANELS.

1. Insulation shall be installed to fully cover the non-
vision areas of the curtain wall exterior cladding
system.

The insulation shall be Spanseal™ Rockwool Boards
as manufactured by CSR Bradford Insulation, to
achieve an FRL 60/60/60 in accordance with
AS1530.4; (also refer to Bradford Fireseal™ System
FS001). In Asia, this requirement is generally FRL
120/120/120.

Where spandrel fire protection is to be provided by a
fire rated masonry wall, the insulation shall be Bradford
Spanseal™ Rockwool Boards.

2. The thickness of insulation shall be ……..mm. For
determination of thermal resistance refer to Table 1.

TABLE 1. THERMAL RESISTANCE

Description Thickness Thermal
Resistance

Bradford Spanseal™

Rockwool Boards 50mm R1.5

Bradford Glasswool 75mm R2.3

Bradford Supertel™ 100mm R3.0

Where Aluminium Foil is used on one (or both) faces
and an airspace is present:

Vertical Reflective
Airspace 20mm R0.58

Vertical Reflective
Airspace >20mm R0.61

3. Where the insulation shall be installed behind tinted
glass, the exterior surface of the insulation shall be
faced with black tissue (BMF) to reduce light
reflection. (NOTE: This facing should always be
carried out by CSR Bradford Insulation to ensure a
professional finish is achieved.)

4. Where a vapour barrier is required to prevent
condensation, the internal surface of the insulation
shall be faced with Thermofoil™ (light/medium/heavy
duty) reinforced foil laminate.

5. The insulation shall be supported by flanges fixed to
the metal framing of the spandrel at …….mm centres.

FIRE SAFING.
1. Fire Safing insulation shall be installed continuously

at all exterior cladding beam/column edge separations
around the complete perimeter of each floor and roof
line. The insulation shall be Fireseal™ Curtain Wall
Batts as manufactured by CSR Bradford Insulation.

2. The minimum effective depth of the fire safing
insulation shall be 135mm to achieve a two hour fire
rating. The batts shall be compressed to 85% of their
original width in order to seal properly, and are to be
inserted into the cavity between the curtain wall and
concrete edge.

3. The fire safing shall be installed in conjunction with
a smoke seal of continuous galvanised steel sheeting
at least 1.2mm thickness, sealed with a fire rated
sealant between the back pan and the floor slab.

NOTE: For further details refer to the Bradford
Fireseal™ Curtain Wall Systems brochure.
