See Owens Corning publication "Enclosure Solutions Perimeter Fire Containment System E2307 Curtain Wall Technical Bulletin" (Pub. No. 10020920) for more information. Installation All firestopping insulation should be installed per the architectural specification or system specific test description. All compressed Safing insulation should be installed per the listed assembly. Perimeter Installation: Safing insulation should be compression fitted between the slab edge and the FireSpan curtain wall insulation, leaving no voids. Penetration Application: Safing insulation should be cut slightly larger than the opening and compression fitted into the opening, leaving no voids. Construction Joint Application: Safing insulation should be compression fitted into the joint opening, leaving no voids.
