If the cable outlet is required to be installed inside of the firewall or smoke wall, our Membrane Fire Stop Sleeve will do the job.
This UNIQUE product is an angled fire stop sleeve that cuts it’s own hole and installs in 2 minutes, allowing for a UL Classified path to fish cables inside a firewall. The System creates its own hole with the sharp point on the back side of the sleeve. A bead of caulk (not included) is applied to the back of the system and the sleeve is secured to the wall with expanding anchors.
We make this system in the USA in our own factory. UL listed for fire-rated gypsum board/stud walls.
Available in 1 and 2 inch diameters.
Pictorial Installation Process
|System contents: Membrane Firestop Sleeve, bushing, anchors, label and UNIQUE Intumescent Putty.|
|Prior to installation, remove the anchors, putty, label, and plastic bushing.|
|Determine the cable wall outlet’s location and place the pointed leading edge of the sleeve plate directly above your cable outlet (above the grid). Carefully drive the Membrane Firestop Sleeve into the wall.|
|Make sure the plate fits flush against the wall. Now, remove the plate and go on to the next step. |
Be sure to clean out the back of the wall where the hole was made by the sleeve.
|Apply a small bead of non-intumescent firestop caulk to the back of the plate and around the sleeve to seal the Membrane Firestop to the wall. Re-insert the system into the hole you made.|
|Now, carefully drive the expanding anchors through the face of the system and in the drywall.|
|Cable load is 40%. Apply an inch thickness of the supplied intumescent putty in the top of the sleeve. Be sure to fill out the Documentation Warning Label. It is recommended that you take a picture of your installed System for future reference.|
