Fire Protection Applications
Penetration Seal Systems
These are systems for mechanical, electrical, plumbing, sprinkler,
signal cables, structural steel and other penetrations. Manufacturer
products are tested to ASTM E814 and UL 1479 for 1, 2, 3 and 4
hour ratings. A complete firestop line includes silicone sealants
(self leveling and trowel grade), water-based intumescent caulk,
putty, wrapstrip, restricting collar, plastic pipe devices, compound,
pillows, composite sheet and MCT (multi-cable transit).
Construction Joint Systems
These are systems for masonry and drywall top of wall joints,
wall and floor construction, expansion joints, and slab edge or
curtain wall joints. Manufacturer products are tested to ASTM
E814 and UL 2079 for 1 to 4 hour ratings. Firestop materials include
silicone sealants (self leveling and trowel grade), water-based
intumescent caulk and brush or spray applied water-based intumescent
coatings. SPI also provides FirePlugs®, FireStrips™
and other precut mineral fiber shapes to fit fluted deck profiles,
straight joints for top of wall and slab edge construction.
Manufacturer products are tested to ASTM-E136 for non-combustibility
as required by CABO and BOCA codes for residential one and two
family wood frame construction applications.
Kitchen Exhaust Duct Systems
Manufacturer products are tested to ASTM E119, UL 263 and UL 1978
and include high temperature flexible blanket materials in unfaced,
faced one side or totally encapsulated form. The wrap system is
applied directly to the duct. A rigid board system is also available.
HVAC Duct Systems
Manufacturer products are tested to ASTM E119, UL 263 and include
high temperature flexible blanket wrapped directly to the duct
for 1 and 2 hour ratings. A rigid board system is also available.
Other applications include trash and laundry chutes and a complete
line of fire, fire/smoke, control and ceiling radiation dampers.
PVC Pipe/Return Air Plenum Protection
Manufacturer products are tested to UL and ASTM standards to reduce
flame spread and smoke development of pvc pipe or other combustible
materials in return air plenums.
Cable Tray and Conduit Protection Systems
Manufacturer products are tested to UL and FM standards and include
water-based elastomeric intumescent coatings, which are spray
or brush applied and provide a fire retardant finish. Also, high
temperature blanket or board materials are available to provide
a 1 or 2 hour rated enclosure.
Structural Steel Fireproofing Systems
Manufacturer products are tested to ASTM E119, UL 263, UL 1479
and 1709 for interior and exterior structural fireproofing applications
of structural steel members, decking, tanks and vessels. Application
materials include lightweight insulation board and flexible wrap
materials as well as traditional spray and trowel applied materials.
Access Doors; Fire Extinguisher and Valve Cabinets; Fire
and Smoke Dampers
include a full line of standard and fire rated access doors; fire
extinguisher and valve cabinets; and fire and smoke dampers.
Fire Retardant Coatings
include a full line of fire retardant coatings useful in reducing
the flammability of woods, fabrics and textiles
