Branz-Validated Fire-Rated Expansion Joints

Branz is the New Zealand-based independent and impartial research, testing, consulting and information company providing resources for the building industry. Using the extensive data compiled from multiple UL 2079 tests on EMSEAL’s Emshield DFR2 and WFR2 and SJS-FR2 fire-rated expansion joints for walls and floors, BRANZ conducted an assessment of the fire resistance of these systems if they were tested in accordance with AS 1530.4-2005.

The resulting 3rd Party Branz Report validates the fire resistance of DFR2, WFR2 and SJS-FR2 joint systems to AS 1530.4-2005.  The report concludes:

“It is considered that the EMSEAL [DFR2, WFR2 and SJS-FR2] would achieve an Integrity and Insulation of at least 120 minutes if tested in accordance with AS 1530.4-2005”
