Description

Cast-in fire collar/ cast-in device, designed to prevent the spread of fire through plastic pipes and cables where they penetrate concrete floors

Constructed from a robust polypropylene material and contains a high performance intumescent material which reacts under the influence of heat. This will exert pressure on the pipe as it softens, to form a carbonaceous char which provides an effective insulation plug thus preventing smoke and fire passing through to the adjoining compartment.

Features and benefits:

  • Suitable for polyvinyl chloride (PVC), unplasticized polyvinyl chloride (PVC-U), polyethylene (PE), high-density polyethylene (HDPE), medium-density polyethylene (MDPE) and polypropylene (PP) pipes.
  • Available to suit 50, 110 and 160 mm diameter pipes.
  • Available to suit 150–250 mm or thicker concrete slabs.
  • Manifold recess former option (110 mm diameter pipes only).
  • Quick and simple installation.
  • Integrated moisture and smoke seal.
  • Strong lid to carry foot traffic and light access equipment.
  • No backfilling generally required.
  • Compact footprint allows for closer positioning of pipes.
  • Manufactured in the UK.

Standards and approvals:

  • Fire resistance testing to BS EN 1366-3: 2009.
  • Up to four hour fire rating (EI 240).
  • CE Marked.
  • Performance unaffected by weathering (Type X Durability).

Application:

Designed at 250 mm high as standard to meet the requirements of most applications.

Product Options

Manifold recess former:

  • Creates a 75 mm recess in the floor slab either on the top or on the bottom of the floor slab to allow for applications where there is limited ceiling space and so the plastic pipe can be installed closer to the ceiling with the pipe connection recessed in the slab.
  • Applications include: Shower traps for walk-in showers and wet rooms, soil pipe manifolds, pipe connections and areas with limited ceiling space.
  • Fire rating: Up to four hours (when used in conjunction with QuelCast110).
