When a roof is stripped down to rafters, or on 'new
build', 'Reed & Straw Thatching' recommends the installation of PU28
Thatch Fire Barrier.
PU28 is a medium weight fiber glass fabric with a specially
formulated aluminum pigmented and fire retardant polymer which provides
a heat reflecting surface as well as other properties for the
manufacturing of smoke and fire curtains, blinds, cavity wall fire
barriers and other types of smoke and fire control systems. As opposed
to a rigid fire-board, the material is flexible and will follow the
contours of an old roof structure. The material is halogen free, has an
improved resistance to hydrolysis (waterproof & breathable) and
offers a more rigid handle, it will not rip easily.
With a Class 0 fire resistance rating and satisfying BS 476 Part 6:
1989, Part 7 1997, it is acceptable, where required, for Building

a very reduced rate.
1.3m x 50m - £450.00 per roll + haulage. There

The PU28 thatch fire barrier fabric is fixed on top of the rafters. The
recommendation is to lay the strips vertically, to overlap on a rafter,
to create a total fire seal. As the thatching requires the ability to
fix into the rafters, a counter batten is then fixed to the vertical
line of each rafter. By then fixing horizontal battens, an air gap
,beneath the thatch, of about 50 mm is created.
