Firestop Collars provide a simple and effective method of fire stopping plastic pipe work where it passes through compartment walls and floors.
Firestop Collars consist of a powder coated steel sleeve containing a flexible graphite based intumescent liner manufactured to suit the pipe work to be fire stopped.
Integral toggles are opened up and the collar is simply fitted around the plastic pipe. The toggles are closed and the collar is pushed flush to the surface of the wall or underside of floor. The collar is then securely fastened to the structure by means of fire resistant fixings threaded through fixing tabs.
Annular gaps around the pipe of up to 15mm should be filled with Acoustic Intumescent Sealant. For annular gaps greater than 15mm Fire stop Compound can be used. Under fire conditions the intumescent material swells filling the void left by the burnt out plastic.
Install Firestop Collars to provide up to 1, 2, 3 or 4 hours fire protection to all plastic pipe work. Installation to be fully in accordance with manufacturer's instructions.
