Full passive fire plumbing technical manual.
Designed for the fire protection of plasterboard walls penetrated by plastic pipes, Fire Bands are rolled galvanized steel sleeves with two slide tabs fixed through a corresponding slot, and fold-back tabs for attachment to the plasterboard. An Allproof Fire Wrap is installed on each face of the plasterboard within the Fire Band. In the event of a fire, the intumescent Fire Wrap contained within the steel Fire Band activate, filling the band with a fire-resistant seal.
