ACS has designed and developed the worlds first A1 Fire Rated Cavity Tray system.
Working to building regulation and input from major warranty providers, ACS has created a fully viable, compliant solution for A1 fire rated stainless steel cavity trays.
In December 2018 the government made changes to building regulation, restricting the use of combustible materials in the cavity of some buildings.
SFS projects have been hit hard with the changes, causing confusion with what is and isn’t expected of manufacturers and design engineers.
ACS have designed a fully compliant A1 fire rated cavity tray, which allows projects to be constructed as per the original design and specification.
Keeping SFS Alive
SFS is a cost-effective construction method. Saving time and money throughout the project. Its increase in popularity over the years has seen it being chosen as the system of choice for many large scale projects.
The savings made by using SFS has allowed many projects to proceed while using other construction methods they would be unviable.
The changes to building regulation severely affected the specification of SFS systems, causing construction project costs to spiral, and in some cases shelved.
G-Tray™ is the only A1 fire rated stainless steel cavity tray available on the market. This innovative system now allows for SFS to be safely used as a construction method.
