Unifrax Receives A60 Approvals for Marine Fire Protection Solutions
FyreWrap LT marine blankets from Unifrax reportedly provide lightweight solutions for a wide range of fire-rated divisions in the shipbuilding industry.
Unifrax recently announced that it now holds A60 approvals for 4-mm-thick aluminum bulkheads and decks, which are specifically designed for protecting luxury yachts and fast craft against the spread of fire. FyreWrap LT marine blankets reportedly provide lightweight solutions for a wide range of fire-rated divisions in the shipbuilding industry.
FyreWrap LT A60 solutions for 4-mm aluminum bulkheads and decks are based on one blanket grade that has a thickness of 55 mm and density of 70 kg/m3. Design and installation is simple, according to Unifrax, as the blanket is simply wrapped around the stiffeners following the profile of the aluminum structure.
With the lightweight FyreWrap LT blanket in conjunction with the 4-mm plate, the total weight of the construction is reportedly significantly less than standard 6-mm plate systems. This can lead to an increase in speed potential, as well as savings on the running costs from the improved vessel efficiency.
