Short Description

Fire Rated Pick Resistant Wall Expansion Joint Designed to Resist Vandalism

Quantity Needed

A pick resistant fire rated expansion joint and joint sealant, SecuritySeal SSW2 is watertight, has built-in 2-hour fire resistance, and high-movement for vertical-plane locations requiring a hardened tamper-resistant surface. Walls such as those found in prisons, detention centers, medical and psychiatric hospitals, school facilities and day-care centers are some of the many venues where SecuritySeal SSW2 is the perfect choice.

SecuritySeal SSW2 features dual-sided, pick resistant, hardened flexible polyurethane sealing surfaces adhered to a fire-retardant impregnated foam backing. Both sides of the expansion joint are waterproof and fire-rated.

SecuritySeal SSW2 is a 2-hour UL-certified fire barrier and preformed alternate to fire caulk and fire stop materials.

SecuritySeal SSW2 eliminates the need for fire blankets, mineral wools, liquid sealants, or other fire stop materials. It can be used alone or behind any other expansion joint cover, plate or filler where depth of substrate allows.

Installed entirely from the surface of the joint, SecuritySeal SSW2 vastly simplifies installation, project sequencing and coordination of trades by eliminating the need for access staging or obstruction by installation and presence of under-slab mechanical systems.

Non-invasive anchoring vastly simplifies installation and project sequencing. SecuritySeal SSW2 pick resistant fire rated wall expansion joint is tested and certified by Underwriters Laboratories (UL), to the rigors of UL 2079 for wall and head-of-wall expansion joints.
