FR-10 Slipsheet

FR-10 fire resistant slipsheets enhance the overall fire performance of many conventional commercial roofing systems including metal roofs.

FR-10 is a coated-glass fiber mat specifically designed for installation over wood decks or certain combustible insulation.

  • Superior protection against flame spread and penetration.
  • A lightweight and easy-to-install roof system component.
  • Part of a “Class A” assembly over noncombustible decks and expanded polystyrene.
  • Part of a “Class A” assembly over combustible and noncombustible decks and extruded polystyrene.

Fire Retardant Slipsheet Recommended Uses

FR-10 fire retardant slipsheets are specifically formulated for use over wood decks or polystyrene insulation board. The proprietary fire retardant coating and glass fiber mat provide protection against flame spread and flame penetration through the roofing system. The slipsheet can also act as a barrier between chemically incompatible insulation and roofing membranes. In addition, the slipsheet may be used in multiple layers to achieve certain Class A fire resistance ratings.

FR-10 Installation Instructions

Atlas Fire Retardant Slipsheets are lightweight, easy to handle and, therefore, quicker to install than thermal barriers or coverboards. The slipsheet should be rolled out, overlapping the side and end of the preceding sheet a minimum of two (2) inches. Consult the membrane manufacturer for specific application recommendations (e.g., slipsheet roll direction perpendicular to membrane roll). Mechanical attachment of the slipsheet is not needed in most applications. The patented coating generally provides enough weight to anchor the sheet until the membrane is installed. Mechanical or adhesive attachment may be necessary under windy conditions. Install only as much slipsheet as can be covered by the end of the day.

Storage

Factory-applied packaging is intended solely for protection during transit. When stored outdoors or on the job site, the slipsheet rolls should be stacked on pallets at least four inches above ground level and completely covered with a weatherproof covering such as a tarpaulin.
