Intumescent putty pads are fitted around electrical socket boxes to prevent the passage of fire through otherwise fire-rated materials. Pre-existing sockets fitted into plasterboard can compromise its integrity in the event of a fire, which is why malleable putty pads provide an added layer of protection for up to two hours.
Acoustic putty pads also reduce noise transfer and air leakage, which incidentally lowers energy costs and carbon emissions. We stock high quality intumescent putty pads for electrical socket boxes, all designed to comply with relevant BS476 regulations.
