THE TENMAT DIFFERENCE

TENMAT’s fire rated light enclosures FF109-300 and FF109X, FF130-2×2 and FF130-2×4, as well as our line of Firestopping Foams, Sealants and Blocks have been fire tested by Underwriter Laboratories (UL) and carry the UL classification mark. TENMAT covers are fire tested for use with recessed incandescent, fluorescent or LED luminaires.

Fast and reliable delivery to anywhere in the US and Canada. TENMAT fire rated  light enclosures, firestopping foams, sealants and blocks are usually in stock and ready for immediate shipping within 24 hours of order placement (excluding weekends and holidays). TENMAT products are available from any good electrical supply house or directly from www.tenmatusa.com.

TENMAT fire rated light covers and firestopping products are ready-to-use solutions which do NOT require any assembly. The flexible and lightweight nature of the covers makes installation quick and easy, reduces the stress put on the ceiling and significantly reduces labor costs compared to building standard drywall boxes.

MEET THE BUILDING CODE THE SMART WAY

TENMAT fire rated enclosures and firestopping products have been designed to meet the building code and to help maintain the integrity of fire-resistance rated ceilings when penetrated by recessed lights, LED luminaires, fluorescent fixtures or in-ceiling loudspeakers or walls when penetrated by wires, cables, pipes or mixed penetrations.

Municipalities across the United States require fire-resistance rated ceilings, floors and walls for multi-story residential structures such as apartment buildings, student housing, schools, hospitals or hotels. The 2015 version of the International Building Code (IBC) addresses this issue explicitly in section 714.4.2:

"Where floor/ceiling assemblies are required to have a fire-resistance rating, recessed fixtures shall be installed such that the required fire resistance will not be reduced."

In order to meet this fire code requirement, the ceiling must serve as an unbroken fire barrier, however cutting an opening in the ceiling to install a light fixture or junction box compromises the fire rating of the drywall ceiling. If the fire-rating of the ceiling membrane is not being restored, these openings in the ceiling would allow flames and smoke to spread in the unfortunate event of a fire.

TENMAT 1 and 2 hour UL fire rated light enclosures safely restore the ceiling’s integrity after holes have been cut for the fixtures or junction boxes, and maintain the fire code requirement for the building.

THE TENMAT ADVANTAGE

  • The only flexible fire-resistant enclosure for recessed light fixtures, LED luminaires, in-ceiling speakers, troffers, luminaires and fluorescent lights.
  • Fire tested and approved for a variety of listed systems in ceilings and walls.
  • TENMAT Fire Rated Light Covers are manufactured to the highest quality standards and can be used with a wide range of recessed light models from various manufacturers.
  • The TENMAT firebox for recessed lighting and downlights acts as a fire barrier, but also serves as a thermal insulator, significantly reducing air flow and heat loss through the recessed light fixture.
  • TENMAT also offers firestopping foams, sealants, blocks and plugs, along with specialty products, such as fire rated cavity barriers, fire rated door strips, intumescent papers, fire rated joint seals and intumescent sheets.
