FireMaster® – Lightweight Structural Fire Protection, Thermal and Acoustic Insulation

Morgan Thermal Ceramics' FireMaster® fire protection range was specifically designed to meet the structural fire protection needs of the marine industry, offering high performance and lightweight structural fire protection.

Morgan Thermal Ceramics’ FireMaster® fire protection range was specifically designed to meet the structural fire protection needs of the marine industry, offering high performance and lightweight structural fire protection.

FireMaster® flexible, lightweight blanket products are made without chemical binders, and will not produce toxic smoke or isocyanates in fires. They are widely used for bulkhead and deck fire protection in fast ferries, cruise ships and luxury yachts. Morgan Thermal Ceramics is the market leader in high-speed craft fire protection.

FireMaster® products are comprehensively certified and tested to international standards, offering our customers the security of proven fire performance. Supporting worldwide approvals are in-service references from a market that we have served for over 30 years, including documented cases of exposure to real fires.

FireMaster® products are capable of extended operation at high temperatures. This means our fire protection solutions can be thinner, lighter or simply more cost-effective choices in applications where fire temperatures can reach nearly 1,400°C.

Bulkhead and deck fire protection

Morgan Thermal Ceramics produces fire protection products for steel, aluminium and composite bulkheads and decks:

  • Composite bulkheads and decks: FireMaster® blanket for 60 minute HSC code
  • Certified solutions to provide ‘fire restricting’ insulation to composite structures in accordance with the ISO room corner fire test requirements

FireMaster® bulkhead and deck systems are cost-effective: installation savings and less thickness or lower density add up to installed cost savings of up to 20% compared to traditional rigid batt systems. Typical weights of A60 aluminium systems are 3.5 kg/m², less than 7 kg/m² for 60 minute composite sandwich panel fire protection and 2.8 kg/m² for A60 steel decks.
