Astro PFP Pipe Closer are designed to maintain the fire resistance of fire rated walls and floors where these are breached by continuous plastic pipes, and may be used in gypsum, masonry and concrete walls and floors.
Each pipe closer consists of a Red/Silver coated circular steel shell that splits in two to fit around the service penetrations by means of a simple 'slide-lock' system.
The steel shell contains a graphite based reactive material which reacts when exposed to heat closing the openings left by the softening plastic pipe in fire.
When testing pipes, one can choose not to cap (or close) the pipe, or cap the pipe inside the furnace, or outside the furnace, or on both sides. The configuration chosen depends on the intended applicationof the pipe and/or the installation environment.
The code defining if a pipe is capped is stated after the fire classification. For instance EI 60 C/U which means the pipe was capped inside the furnace, and uncapped outside the furnace. The test configuration defines the approvals possible.
1) Suggested in EN 1366-3:2009. 2) Judgment based on tests.
The sound insulation value is only valid for the closer/pipe and not for other elements in the building construction. The sound insulation has been tested by the accredited laboratory Exova BM Trada in Great Britain according to EN ISO 10140-2. Test report is available upon request.
