TradeSelect CeaseFire™

The ultimate non-combustible weather-proofing and vapour management membrane
Trade Select™ CeaseFire™ is an advanced vapour permeable wall and roof membrane designed specifically as a non-combustible pliable building membrane for use in Type A and B fire resisting constructions and in all construction types where superior passive fire performance and vapour permeability is a priority.

Classified as Class 4 Vapour Permeable, the advanced hydrophobic infusion blocks liquid water and air movement while allowing water vapour diffusion through the wall structure. Trade Select™ CeaseFire™ also contributes to a well-sealed building for maximum energy efficiency.

The E-Glass weave provides an Extra Heavy Duty and is not deemed combustible.

Product Advantages

  • Non-combustible
  • Class 4 Vapour Permeable
  • Ember-proof and suitable for all BAL zones
  • Water and Air Barrier
  • High strength and puncture resistant
  • Chemically inert / long life components


Trade Select™ CeaseFire™ is suitable for all NCC building classes in commercial and single or multi-storey residential fire resisting external wall constructions in regions of Australia south of the Tropic of Capricorn (ABCB Climate Zones 2-8), where both condensation management (NCC 2019 Vol. One F6.2) and non-combustible construction (NCC 2019 Vol. One C1.9 and Vol 2, C3.7.1.1) are required.

For ABCB Climate Zone 1 and north of the Tropic of Capricorn in climate zone 2, substitute with FireSark™ Vapour Barrier sarking and wall wrap.
