Dryer and Plenum Insulation

Unifrax FyreWrap® DPS is a safe and cost effective means to achieve a 1 hour fire-resistance-rated enclosure for routing dryer ductwork through rated wood truss/joist construction. The lightweight core insulation utilizes a ½”, hightemperature insulation blanket specifically designed, UL tested & certified to provide a single layer, 1 hour rated flexible enclosure around dryer and residential kitchen exhaust ductwork. The product also provides code compliant fire protection for combustible items, such as plastic pipes by preventing flame propagation and smoke development in the plenum area.

FyreWrap DPS Insulation offers the following product features:

  • Lightweight, flexible product form
  • Scrim encapsulated
  • Easy to cut, fabricate, wrap around the ducts, pipes or cables
  • Thin, single-layer design
  • High-temperature, low biopersistance fiber

Applications

Dryer Exhaust Applications

FyreWrap DPS is a new and innovative product that provides a safe and cost-effective means to achieve a one-hour fire resistance rated zero clearance enclosure for routing dryer ductwork, from start to finish, through rated wood truss/joist construction as prescribed by the International Building and Mechanical Codes.

Plenum Applications

New construction, building renovations or modifications to the electrical and mechanical systems may result in the installation of plastic pipe or plastic-coated cables that cannot meet the minimum combustibility requirements defined in the Mechanical Code. FyreWrap DPS provides protection to these items by acting as a tested noncombustible enclosure.
