How the Fire Door Ventilation Grille Works 

When subjected to fire, the intumescent block grille swells when temperatures reach 160-200° C, expanding to 40 times its original volume to fill the door void. And it’s this expansion of the intumescent block grille that prevents the spread of flames, maintaining the fire door's integrity. The Fire Block Louvre System is available in over 25 standard sizes from stock and available to order in any size from a 152mm x 152mm minimum cut-out.
