The latest addition to the company’s BlazeFrame Fire Stop product line, BlazeFrame RipTRAK is a UL-tested fire-rated head-of-wall deflection track for both roof and wall assemblies. Available in one- and two-hour rated systems, the product has an offset shoulder that represents the thickness of the wall material. A second piece of board is fit flush to the fluted deck or slab and is then attached to the shoulder, which allows the deck and the product to move in relation to the wall studs.
Furthermore, a recent UL listing has provided a revised installation method for BlazeFrame RipTRAK in fluted deck assemblies that removes the need for sealant and castle-cutting the board, and only requires mineral wool in the flutes of the deck. BlazeFrame RipTRAK is the only UL fire-rated head of wall joint system to meet the new test standard.
