The use of Cable Baskets is on the increase as the amount of cabling within buildings continues to grow.
The Astroflame range of Intumescent Fire & Acoustic Cable Basket Sleeves is intended for use where a cable basket passes through a fire rated wall or floor. The sleeve reinstates the fire rating of the wall or floor which would otherwise be degraded.
The compressible and fully intumescent material provides an effective fire and acoustic seal around both the cables and the cable basket itself. In the event of a fire, the advanced cable basket sleeve will expand with the heat, closing off any holes or gaps to the fire for at least 2 hours.
Cable Basket Sleeves are available to fit all cable basket sizes and are supplied in a standard length to suit all common wall constructions. The ready to install design does not require any additional metal work or support.
Acoustically Tested in a plasterboard partition system in accordance with BS EN ISO 140-3:1995 and BS EN ISO 717-1:1997
