Reference 

Fireplug canisters are available to fit most standard pipe sizes from 50mm upwards.

 

Pipe Size Code
50mm FPC50

150mm FPC150
200mm FPC200

Fireplug FPC Pipe Closers are made using Firefly 101/102 and are designed to surface mount around the pipe penetration. They can be used on either solid walls/floors or partition type hollow walls/floors subject to adequate approved fixings being incorporated. The steel canister is 56mm deep and filled with intumescent.

ACTION

Under the action of heat approved plastic pipes soften as the intumescent expands, sealing the void left by the disappearing pipe.

PERFORMANCE

Fireplug FPC has been tested up to 4 hours and at the Building Test Centre to British Standards BS476: Part 22: 1987: Clause 5, following the methodology of PREN 1366.3 (1993), and 120 minutes insulation and integrity was achieved. Full test reports are available on request.

APPLICATION

Fireplug canisters are fixed around the pipe and the toggle clip engaged. The canister is then slipped along the pipe to the wall or ceiling. The canister is then fixed to the wall or ceiling. The fixings used on the test were four number 50mm wood screws, screwed directly into the aerated block wall (Thermalite, Celcon, etc.). If fitting to concrete floors or brick walls 65mm steel screws or preferably expanded anchors may be used. The opposite side of the wall/floor to the Fireplug FPC can then be back filled with sand and cement if required.

Fireplug Pipe Bandages – FPB

Description

Fireplug FPB Bandages are made using Firefly 101 or 102 intumescent and are enclosed in aluminium foil. Fireplug FPBs are designed to fit into solid walls and floors directly around the service penetration. This does away with the need for a potentially expensive and clumsy metal canister. The solid structure inside which the Fireplug bandages sit act as a wall of a canister, thus ensuring the Intumescent is kept where it is needed.

Action

Under the action of heat PVC. pipe softens as the intumescent strip expands sealing the hole through the wall or floor. In the instance of metal pipes the intumescent absorbs the heat and detracts from it tracking along the pipe and thus breaching the fire break structure. Copper pipe can also melt or collapse in this case the intumescent will act as with PVC. pipe. Lagged pipes should also be protected as the intumescent will crush the insulation as it burns off.

Performance

Fireplug FPB has been tested by TRADA to British Standard BS476 part 20, on 14th May 1993, test No. IT360 and at the Building Test Centre to British Standard BS476: Part 22: 1987: clauses 5, following the methodology of PREN 1366.3 (1993) where 150 minutes insulation and integrity was achieved. Full test reports are available on request.

Application

Fireplug FPB Bandages are wrapped around the pipe/service and secured tightly to itself using the adhesive tongue. If there is more than one piece to the bandage each will carry an adhesive tongue. After attaching to the pipe the Fireplug FPB can be slipped along and into the wall/floor. Note the possible need for making good with mortar.

ACTION

Under the action of heat approved plastic pipes soften as the intumescent expands, sealing the void left by the disappearing pipe.

PERFORMANCE

Fireplug FPC has been tested up to 4 hours and at the Building Test Centre to British Standards BS476: Part 22: 1987: Clause 5, following the methodology of PREN 1366.3 (1993), and 120 minutes insulation and integrity was achieved. Full test reports are available on request.
