SecuritySeal SSF3 features dual-sided, pick resistant, hardened flexible polyurethane sealing surfaces adhered to a fire-retardant impregnated foam backing. Both sides of the expansion joint are waterproof and fire-rated.
SecuritySeal SSF3 is a 3-hour UL-certified fire barrier and preformed alternate to fire caulk and fire stop materials. (For 2-hour fire rating see SecuritySeal SSF2)
SecuritySeal SSF3 eliminates the need for fire blankets, mineral wools, liquid sealants, or other fire stopping materials. It can be used alone or under any other expansion joint cover, plate or filler where depth of substrate allows.
Installed entirely from the deck surface, SecuritySeal SSF3 vastly simplifies installation, project sequencing and coordination of trades by eliminating the need for access staging or obstruction by installation and presence of under-slab mechanical systems.
Non-invasive anchoring vastly simplifies installation and project sequencing. SecuritySeal SSF3 fire rated floor expansion joint is tested and certified by Underwriters Laboratories (UL), to the rigors of UL 2079 for deck and floor expansion joints.

Watertight — Emshield SecuritySeal SSF is installed with the pick resistant sealant bellows facing the weather to ensure watertightness. A field-applied sealant band of supplied silicone at the bellows to substrate interface seals substrate irregularities and completes the installation.
UL/ULC Fire-Rated — Tested in accordance with the cycling and fire endurance requirements of UL-2079, listed by UL, and manufactured under UL’s Follow Up Service ensuring that what is shipped is the same as what was tested.
Non-Invasive Anchoring — There are no hard metal-to-substrate connections. This includes embedded pins, anchors, screws, bolts or tracks, trays or rails, flanges or coverplates. The system is locked to the joint faces by means of the 1) backpressure of the foam; 2) the epoxy adhesive, and 3) the injected sealant bands at the joint face.
Joint-Size Variation —through size-switching, material can be supplied to handle variations in joint size.
Sound Attenuation — Joints sealed with EMSEAL impregnated foam sealants offer exceptional acoustic dampening and feature STC/OITC sound transmission coefficients that can usually meet or exceed that of the assembly into which they are installed.
