3M Fire Protection Products for use in dynamic construction joint systems (e.g. head-of-wall, wall-to-wall, bottom-of-wall, perimeter joints) are designed to accommodate various movements induced by thermal differentials, seismicity and wind loads. 3M also has a variety of products which can be used in static joint systems.
In addition to providing up to 4-hour fire protection in tested and listed systems, many 3M products used in fire-resistive joint systems also offer additional protection benefits such as reducing airborne sound transmissions and minimizing air leakage.
