The Protega Firestop E 1200 is a Swedish-manufactured eave sealing solution designed specifically for Swedish roof truss sizes. It has received the highest evaluation from the Building Product Assessment and is also approved by Sundahus, making it an ideal choice for buildings certified by the Swan eco-label and those registered with BASTA.

When a fire occurs, its swelling strip expands, creating an effective barrier against the spread of fire through roof ventilation. This design allows for an “open solution,” meaning that under normal conditions, it does not impede ventilation as some non-swelling strip products might.

Currently, there is no standard available for the type-approval of our product. Similarly, obtaining a European Technical Assessment (ETA) is not possible at this time, although it is expected to be feasible in the near future.

The Protega Firestop E 1200 has been tested in accordance with the Technical Guidance Document (TGD 19) published by the Association for Specialist Fire Protection (ASFP) in the UK. This testing method demonstrates the capacity of a reactive material to halt the spread of fire in situations where air movement is initially required but a sealed construction is desired in case of a fire. It references standards EN1363-1, 1363-2, and 1364-1, with a notable exception that it does not need to meet the E- and I- criteria in the first five minutes of testing.

Furthermore, the Protega Firestop E 1200 offers solutions that meet fire protection requirements between fire compartments for durations of 60 and 90 minutes as specified by BBR 5:535. The initial five minutes are considered non-critical due to the substantial dilution of fire gases that rise to the attic, aided by the attic’s volume and the inflow of cold air through eaves that are not exposed to fire.

This version aims to present the information in a manner that’s more aligned with English language conventions, making it easier to read and understand while preserving the essential technical details.
