Rytons A1® Fire-rated Metal Soldier Air Bricks

General Details

Features and Benefits:

  • A range of tailor-made metal soldier air bricks.
  • Made from Class A1 fire-rated galvanised steel and compliant with regulations for the requirement of non-combustible materials in the external walls of high-rise buildings over 18m (11m in Scotland) and those 11m and above undergoing unsafe cladding remediation work.
  • Allow ventilation to pass through decorative soldier brickwork whilst maintaining the aesthetic appearance.
  • Rytons Return Grille style provides high air flows across three sizes whilst maintaining low resistance.
  • Custom powder coating as standard.  Choose from the RAL Classic colour chart in matt, semi-gloss or gloss finish (achieving Class A2-s1, d0) for an air brick that matches cladding or brickwork.  Signature architectural coatings are also available.
  • Built-in weather protection.  Drainage holes provide discreet water outlets, and angled grilles promote runoff, reducing the risk of water transfer into the cavity or ducting.
  • Sizes promote easy installation using standard mortar joints for a neat appearance in brickwork.

A1 Fire Classification Explained:

  • Rytons A1® Fire-rated Metal Soldier Air Bricks are made from galvanised steel.  Galvanised steel is considered fire class A1 without testing, as per European Commission paper 96/603/EC referred to in BS EN 13501-1:2018.  The material remains robust at elevated temperatures and has a high melting point temperature of 1450-1520° C.  Classification: A1.  Definition: Non-combustible.  Description: No contribution to fire.

Disclaimers:

  • The installation of metal air bricks alone will not satisfy the requirements of high-rise buildings which require all materials forming part of the external wall, or a specified attachment, to be made from non-combustible materials.  For compliant ducting kits, see Rytons A1 Fire-rated Range.
  • We do not recommend the purchase of a metal air brick separate to the plenum/ducting.  As components are made by hand and have a size tolerance of +/- 5%, we can only guarantee compatibility between the air brick and plenum/ducting if fabricated and supplied as a kit.

Associated Ducting Kits:

  • Rytons A1® Fire-rated Soldier Ducting Kits.

Reference Material:

  • Building Regulation 7(2) – Ban of combustible materials in the external wall of buildings.
  • Building Regulation Approved Document B (fire safety).
  • Building standards Scotland technical handbook – domestic (2.7).
