Vanco International Partners With Tenmat
Vanco International announced a partnership with Tenmat, a passive fire protection manufacturer. Dealers can now access advanced fire-rated enclosures for use with speakers and lighting fixtures through any Vanco distributor.
When installing anything in a fire-rated ceiling, integrators must take steps to prevent the spread of flame through the aperture. With Tenmat’s intumescent technology, the interior of the enclosure quickly expands when exposed to the intense heat of a fire, creating a tough char. The highly insulative char seals off any gaps and prevents the spread of flames and heat.
Vanco distributors will carry two speaker enclosures sized to pair with the Beale Street line of products:
- FF109-FRSC — a standard fire-rated speaker enclosure that offers protection and improved acoustic performance for infinite baffle speakers up to 10” in diameter; pairs with the Beale Basics line.
- FF109-FRSC XL — an extra-large enclosure sized to house Beale Street’s patented Sonic Vortex speakers.
Vanco distributors will also carry Tenmat’s line of fire-rated covers for standard recessed can lights, oversized recessed can lights, LED downlights and troffer luminaries.
