IntuLight™ Passes Intertek Testing

PyroPhobic Systems Ltd. recently completed a fire resistance testing program at Intertek Testing Services, in accordance with ASTM E119-18CE1. PyroPhobic was issued a 1 and 2 hour rating for a unique, new recessed fire resistant luminaire product, marketed as IntuLight™.

IntuLight™ consists of PyroPhobic Systems’ intumescent composite injection moulded component applied to a generic steel recessed fixture using our proprietary engineered drop down system. This is a factory manufactured, out-of-the-box system that is installed similar to a standard recessed fixture. It is the new industry standard for fire resistance in recessed luminaires and offers a significant performance advantage over untested, UL 514a steel boxes.

IntuLight™ is important to the commercial and residential construction industries because it meets the requirements of the 2018 International Building Code, Chapter 7, paragraph 714.5.1.2, Fire and Smoke Protection Features, Exceptions 1 and 8. As a fire rated product, because IntuLight™ maintains the fire resistance rating of the ceiling membrane as a listed luminary, the aggregate area of openings allowed by IBC is not decreased.
