Safire Intumescent Pipe Sleeves are a cost effective product for the stopping of pipe penetrations e.g. plumbing pipes and metallic pipes, whilst maintaining similar thermal and acoustic properties as standard mineral fibre insulation. These properties ensure compliance with Water Bye-laws and Building Regulations for cold and hot water pipes and heating systems.
Safire Pipe Sleeves have been designed for simple, fast installation, and can be quickly fitted to the pipe and slid into the penetration without the need for mortar, mastic or support.
In a fire situation the sleeve expands to fill the available space between the pipe and the penetration. In the case of plastic pipes the sleeve will crush and close off the pipe forming a solid char and preventing the passage of fire and smoke to the adjacent compartment.
Fittings available to fit all popular pipe sizes from 15mm to 160mm diameter.
Sleeve wall thickness typically 25mm.
Safire Intumescent Pipe Sleeves have undergone fire resistance tests including:
