The Hilti CFS-SP SIL speed spray is a silicone-based smoke and fire resistant sealant which is applied to various construction joints by an airless spray applicator or brush. The CFS-SP SIL system compensates for considerable movement laterally, vertically and horizontally while maintaining its ability to prevent the passage of smoke and flames. It is most suitable for use on the perimeter seal of a building between the edge of the concrete slab and the inside face of the curtain wall. As the CFS-SP SIL creates a large flexible seal, it allows for relative movement of the curtain wall façade not possible from traditional methods, it offers greater safety and security for the curtain wall façade.
Sealing building perimeter gaps between floor slabs and exterior curtain wall facades
The Hilti CFS-SP SIL Speed Spray comes with ETA and UL approval for curtain wall to edge of slab applications. Additionally, it is supported by a AS 1530.4 Fire test for construction joints. Because there are no are guidelines for qualifying an edge of slab to curtain wall construction joint under the locally cited fire standard AS1530.4. We need to look at what international standards exist to develop an alternative solution under the NZBC. BS EN 1364-4:2014 - Fire resistance tests for non-loadbearing elements, and ANSI/ ASTM E2307 Standard Test Method for Determining Fire Resistance of Perimeter Fire Barriers Using Intermediate-Scale, Multi-story Test Apparatus, can be identified as best practices. The CFS-SP SIL speed spray has approvals for both of these, as well as a complimentary mid-slab joint test to AS1530.4 to demonstrate its effectiveness when tested under the local standards.
