Pipe Wraps are intumescent composition – based elastomeric thermoplastic polymers, designed to provide high volume expansion and pressure sealing around PVC pipes and insulated metal pipes. Tested systems includes PVC, Polypropylene, MDPE, HDPE, HPPE and ABS up to a size of 200 mm diameter pipes through concrete / blockwork floors and walls as well as light weight partitions.
Benefits & Features
- Suitable for wall and floor installation
- The product is based on a thermoplastic composite and is therefore non – toxic
- Halogen free, contains no asbestos, ceramic, mineral fibres and is environmentally friendly
- Not affected by fungus, vermin or rodents
- Remains flexible between – 40 0 C to +130 0 C, long life and is easy to use
- Pipe Wraps are approved to multiple International Standards
- Test approvals up to 4hrs, with the highest FRL achieved is – /240/240, most applications FRL – /180/180 or /120/120
How Does it Work
FR Pipe Wraps are flexible intumescent seals for fire protection of fire walls and floors penetrated by plastic pipes and insulated plastic or metal pipes. When a fire occurs the intumescent material swells, crushing the plastic pipe or insulation and filling the gap with fire resistant material.
In lightweight wall construction, plasterboard or hollow wall construction, a steel pipe band must be used with the pipe wrap.
As the FR Pipe Wrap activates only in a fire it does not affect the performance or operation of the pipe in normal times. It is a simple to install, low maintenance solution for pipe penetrations seals in fire rated walls and floors. Note – like all fire stopping measures, installed FR Pipe Wraps must be properly maintained in accordance with the relevant Inspection & Testing Standard.
- Select wrap of relevant size to the pipe and place wrap around the pipe, with the ends overlapping each others.
- Remove plastic backing from adhesive strip and secure with adhesive tape supplied.
- Adjust the position of the wrap so that the edge is central within the wall or floor surface.
- When installing into masonry floors, ensure the wrap in flush with the underside of the slab.
- Fill annular gap with FireMastic – 300 or FireMortar – 360 to a depth of 5mm.
- Pipe wrap and the pipe can be sealed with FireMastic – 300.
- Maintain record of installation on the relevant as – built drawings or base building firestop schedule.
