This week, Twitter trends saw the hashtag “TriggersMeIn4Words” which we took as an opportunity to briefly inform our followers of how some of the fires that occur
Fire Pipe Collars are designed to help reinstate the fire resistance of a wall or floor, which has been penetrated to allow services such as gas, water, plastic flammable pipes and flammable gases. Our Pyroplex fire pipe collars can be fitted to or set-in to a wall or ceiling construction. They are also suitable for use on concrete, masonry and plasterboard partitions.
Our fire pipe collars are available in a number of fire ratings including 2 and 4 hour ratings. This means that they should resist fire up to 2 or 4 hours depending on the chosen collar, this can make the difference of a contained fire and an un-contained fire. Pyroplex fire pipe collars are extremely easy to fit in to place using only a few screws and features a tab closing device ensuring a quick and easy fix.
