Tested. Simple. Individual - RAUKANTEX FP edgebands

Fire protection is the alpha and omega in building construction as well as in urban and long-distance transport. Especially the development of smoke gases from materials installed in the interior is decisive in case of emergency. Therefore, strict legal requirements for passive fire protection also exist here.

With RAUKANTEX FP from the REHAU fire.protect product family, we offer you self-extinguishing edgebands with halogen-free flame retardants for wall cladding or furniture that meet important fire protection specifications in the European area and at the same time set no limits for design.

95 %

of those killed in fires die as a result of smoke inhalation

3 breaths

of highly toxic fire smoke will lead to unconsciousness

2 min.

can already be fatal


RAUKANTEX FP is halogen-free, flame-retardant and self-extinguishing after the ignition source was removed. RAUKANTEX FP has the relevant European test reports for building construction and rail. In addition to their tested fire protection properties, the edgeband solutions also meet all the design requirements of a modern interior. Thanks to innovative composite testing for edgeband, chipboard and adhesive, design freedom is now possible even with high edgeband thicknesses. In addition, RAUKANTEX FP is as quick and easy to process as all RAUKANTEX edgebands.

Areas of application

Whether exhibition hall, hotel, kindergarten, school, hospital or in local and long-distance traffic:

In all these places, safety is the highest priority. People must remain protected as much as possible and - in the event of a fire breaking out - must only be exposed to the smallest possible quantities of smoke and toxic gases. Escape from the buildings or the wagons must be possible without loss of orientation.

Likewise, the effect of the fire must not be intensified by materials.

The edgebands are tested according to EN 13501-1* B - s2, d0 as well as EN 45545-2 R24 HL3 and can therefore be used in the following areas.

The advantages at a glance

  • Halogen-free ABS blend material
