Flameshield Products Limited was established in 2002 to develop the idea of a fireduct product
system that would require no external coatings while conforming to the BS 476 Part 24 and ISO
6944 (1985) Fire Resistant Tests.
Ductwork that is sprayed or coated with a fire retardant coating has a number of major flaws. A
non-coated, fire rated ductwork product, such as Flameshield, would ensure fire resistance less
susceptible to damage and other flaws inherent in coated duct products.
In 2003, after an initial period of product development, Flameshield Products conducted a rigorous
test programme at the Building Research Centre (BRE). Over the next four years Flameshield
Fireduct progressively gained full certification to BS 476 Part 24 and passed numerous other tests
The specification and use of Flameshield Fireduct has grown immensely with sales through our
accredited and licensed manufacturers and installers increasing every year. Flameshield Fireduct is
now one of the most specified non-coated, fire rated duct systems on the UK market.
Since our certification under the BS standard we have continued to develop the Fireduct
system. From 2008 we have invested over £1.5m in developing the product and testing Flameshield
Fireduct under the new EN 1366 Parts 1 & 8. We are pleased that Flameshield Fireduct has achieved
certification to this standard in accordance with EN 13501-3 A.
A formal ‘Declaration of Performance’ is now available for publication and full
certification of the product listing has been added along with our BS 476 Part 24
listing, to the LPCB ‘Red Book Live’.
There is no doubt the Flameshield Fireduct is the Gold standard in standards compliant
specified non-coated, fire rated ductwork.
