They work to BS 476 and Approved Document B regulations, which means they provide top class reduction of the flow of air throughout a building’s compartment boundaries, improving the air integrity significantly. Which, in turn, makes it much more difficult for fire to spread.
Fire Rated Sleeves are designed to prevent the spread of fire and smoke through plastic pipes which penetrate fire compartment walls and floors by filling the void created when the heat softens and melts the plastic pipe.

Firestops should be maintained in accordance with the listing, approval use, and compliance. Construction documentation sometimes includes an inventory of all firestops in a building, with drawings indicating the location and the certification listings of each firestop. Using this, a building owner can meet the requirements of the fire code related to fire barriers during the period of building occupation. Otherwise, improper repairs may result, which would violate the fire code, and could allow during a fire event, for the fire to travel between areas intended by code to be separated.
