Market leader in Passive Fire Protection
FIREFLY was developed as an alternative Fire Barrier to Asbestos (which ceased production in the early 90’s). Produced from woven and non-woven glass, materials which are non-respirable, lightweight and easily installed. FIREFLY was the first company to offer a flexible Fire Barrier to the market, offering not just passive fire protection but also stop the heat transferring through the fire barrier in the event of a fire.
We listened to our customers needs and increased the scope of installation by not just testing our Fire Barriers for vertical installations, but also for the horizontal, opening up many more applications such as control zones and movement joints.
Further diversifying, and following on from an initial MOD enquiry, FIREFLY then moved in to the very onerous Marine market under the brand name of NAUTILUS. Providing Fire Insulation Barriers, for both bulkheads and decks.
