WABASH, Ind., Dec. 30, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Thermafiber, Inc. announces the official launch of SafingPaks, fire stop insulation designed for plumbers, electricians, HVAC and telecommunication installers. SafingPaks are precut pieces of the UL and Intertek (OPL) listed/tested Safing Insulation, packaged in a unique bag that offers a resealable opening and an easy-grip handle. SafingPaks are a new evolution in the popular Safing Insulation product line. Thermafiber's Safing Insulation is engineered to provide life-saving fire protection in floor/ceiling and wall penetrations, construction joints, and other firestopping applications.
"Our goal was to create a package for our Safing Insulation that makes it more convenient for contractors to use," says Michael Williams, Thermafiber's Executive Vice President. "When contractors poke a hole through a fire rated wall, floor or ceiling they are required by building codes to restore that penetration to the original fire rating. Using our SafingPaks in combination with an approved smoke sealant helps these contractors do their job more efficiently. The resealable bag, along with the pre-cut pieces, make SafingPaks ideal for several construction trades. We are excited about the new customer segments and retail markets that SafingPaks will service."
SafingPaks will be available through Thermafiber's existing distribution network, with retail distribution channels currently in development.
