Putty Pads


The Firesure™ Putty Pads for Sockets and Switches has been designed to prevent the passage of fire through the socket and switch boxes and will reinstate the fire rating of the partition for up to two hours.

It also has good sound insulation properties.


The Putty Pad is a non-setting, flexible, hand workable, re-useable and re-seviceable product due to its non-setting properties. They can be fitted inside or externally around the boxes.  In a fire they form a robust char which prevents the fire breaking through the boxes.


Available in two sizes for internal use and two sizes for external use.
