A high percentage of the steel, copper and plastic pipes found in commercial and domestic buildings will penetrate through fire rated constructions such as ceilings, floors and walls. Once a hole is made in a fire rated construction for the passage of pipes or services the integrity of the compartment is compromised.
To solve this problem Astroflame have developed Astro Thermal Fire Pipe Sleeve, which reinstates the fire rating of the construction and prevents fire spreading from one compartment to another. It also protects copper pipes from cement erosion.
The sleeve is a cost effective product for the fire stopping of pipe penetrations, e.g. plumbing pipe and metallic pipes, whilst maintaining similar thermal and acoustic properties as standard mineral fibre insulation. These properties ensure compliance to water bye laws and building regulations for cold and hot water pipes and heating systems.
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.
Tested in Plasterboard Partition, Mineral Fibre Batt, Solid Walls and Floors.
Tested on the following pipe sizes to BS 476 and BS EN 1366-3 for up to 2 hours.

All sleeves have been tested with a 25mm nominal wall thickness. Sleeves have been tested cut flush to the wall for metal pipes only and floor for metal and plastic pipes. Sleeves have also been tested in walls, for plastic pipes, leaving 25mm exposed for connection to standard pipe insulation.
The sleeve is simple to install, easy to cut and one sleeve can replace two collars. For metal pipes the sleeve may also be fitted flush to the wall for a clean line solution.
