Fire-Rated Head-of-Wall Product Line

ClarkDietrich has expanded its family of head-of-wall products with the addition of UltraBEAD, a smoke, fire and sound-rated bead that gives architects and specifiers an efficient, high-performance solution for fire-stopping and acoustical control applications. ClarkDietrich UltraBEAD features a proprietary compressible foam that provides smoke, fire and sound containment in fire-resistant joint systems in or between fire-resistance-rated walls and floor-ceiling or roof-ceiling assemblies. Head-of-wall assemblies using UltraBEAD have been tested and provide STC ratings of up to 52.


When used in conjunction with UltraTRAK slotted deflection track or Deep Leg deflection tracks, ClarkDietrich UltraBEAD provides a 1- or 2-hour fire-rated assembly for a 3/4” max joint and is UL 2079-Fifth Edition compliant. UltraBEAD is also available with Rip Bead® to create a crisp finished edge.


Because head-of-wall assemblies and solutions can be confusing, ClarkDietrich has added another tool to their website to help their customers. Newly updated website taxonomy for fire-rated systems makes it possible to filter to the correct product based on assembly requirements.


ClarkDietrich also wants to make it easier to ask questions and research fire-rated systems, which is why they created a dedicated Fire-Rated System Technical Support page. All a customer has to do is fill out a quick, comprehensive web form and a technical service representative will contact them to help make the best product selections for their fire-rated project.
