Product of the Month - Snap Fire Collars

The Silent Fireman

Where a building element is penetrated by a service, fire collars are installed around pipes/cables/etc to ensure the fire resistance level (FRL) of the element where the services passes through is not compromised. 

Types

Cast in fire collars are designed to be secured to the formwork for a concrete slab, prior to the concrete bring poured.

Once the concrete is poured, the collar creates a void, so services can penetrate in multi level builds.

Retrofit collars are designed to be mounted underneath the slab or onto a wall after construction.

 

Features 

• Use an innovative spring and mesh system, which offers better resistance than traditional collars which rely on intumescent material.

 

Projects

• nRAH. Over 5000 fire collars were supplied to the new build

• Adelaide Airport

• Realm Apartments

• “One“ On the Park

• And many, many more!
