Viega, Fire Protection R120

In an unfortunate fire event, a conventional drain and drainpipe may melt and compromise and provides an opening in which fire can spread. Viega’s Advantix bath drain R120 and Advantix pipe lead-in R120 can resist fire up to 120 minutes by swelling to fill the gap to prevent the fire spread.

In the normal day, the Advantix bath drain R120 comes with a water seal to prevent odour entering the bathroom. The Advantix pipe lead-in can be connected to a Viega shower channel with this feature.

Both Advantix bath drain R120 and Pipe lead-in R120 can be installed in floors at least 150mm thick (including bonded screed / floor installation panels, etc) through drill holes.

The product is designed to handled residential wastewater with pH higher than 4 and less than 10. It is able to handle short term high temperature of 95°C but temperature should be lower in constant operation. 

In a fire event, where the drainpipe may had melted away, the Advantix bath drain R120/pipe lead-in R120 swelling compound will start expanding and seal the opening. Its mortar anchors of the fire protection sleeve firmly secure the floor drain in place, creating a closure to prevent further spread. 

The product is easy to install without any tools for mounting. It complies with all requirements for fire protection and offers a high degree of safety by reducing damages to property and assists to provide more time to escape.
