The EMSHIELD WFR2 (which stands for Wall, Fire-Rated, 2-hours) performs all the functions necessary to accommodate movements in a single installation, reducing the environmental impact while meeting fire-safety and building codes. By using less materials, conserving energy and improving safety are cornerstones of LEED and green building-based design philosophy. The new hybrid wall system is designed for buildings, stadiums, arenas, hospitals, schools, universities, airports, parking decks, hotels and other structures where containment of fire at structural expansion joints is required. Being UL 2079 certified means that it has been tested and passed the rigorous Underwriters Laboratories expansion joint sealant cycling and fire testing.
