Understanding Thatch Fire Protection
The main types of fire barrier protection for Thatched properties fall into three basic categories:
Flexible fireproof membrane
Fireboard (fireproof barrier board)
Individual fireproof insulation slabs (Rockwool)
All three types are marketed by a range of specialist companies, under different names and prices, and
yet within each category those products on sale are essentially the same, and all compliant with relevant
British Standard tests.
When it comes to Thatching a property, Thatch Protect recognises that the investment can be substantial,
particularly where fire protection is required. We are pleased to offer our range of protection at the most
competitive prices; our products comply with current Building Regulations, plus the “Dorset Model”
(the acknowledged guide to planning requirements for thatched properties).
In addition, Thatch Protect can provide Independent advice to Builders, Surveyors , Architects and
property owners on matters relating to building regulations, technical advice for new builds and
extensions, re-thatching and U-Values for thatch. Our Range of Fire Protection includes the following.
