MXF – Fire sprinkler boxing

Fire sprinkler systems are an increasingly important part of building design and fire safety solutions, especially with ongoing retro-fitting programmes in high-rise residential blocks.

Our MXF fire sprinkler boxing range is designed to provide a quick and cost effective method of concealing fire sprinkler pipework in retro-fit projects where sprinkler pipework is surface mounted for reasons of practicality, economy and speed.

Manufactured in the UK from pre-formed plywood, which is also pre-finished in white as standard, MXF boxing is available in 5mm or 8mm thicknesses and in a range of sizes to meet the specific needs of boxing in fire sprinkler pipework.

Installation is simple and quick, as MXF boxing can be easily cut to length and core-drilled to accommodate the sprinkler heads on-site. A range of dedicated accessories is also available to give a high quality, integrated and professional finish.

MXF fire sprinkler boxing is supplied in 2500mm lengths as standard.
