New from Polypipe
Polypipe Terrain has launched a comprehensive new range of passive fire protection products designed to allow the creation of the best possible fire ratings for drainage stacks in above-ground installations. The new Terrain Firetrap products all comply with BS 476 and enable the specification of Terrain drainage systems that conform to the requirements of Part B Building Regulations.
The Terrain Firetrap range includes Terrain Firetrap Sleeves and Terrain Firetrap Collars. Firetrap Sleeves provide a cost-effective way of stopping the spread of fire via pipe penetrations in walls or floors. During a blaze the sleeve firstly expands to fill the space between the pipe and the penetration, then crushes the plastic drainage pipe until it closes off completely, preventing the passage of fire and smoke to adjacent areas.
Terrain Firetrap Sleeves offer up to four hours fire protection and are ideal for Terrain Fuze stacks as well as above-ground Terrain Acoustic dB12 and PVC soil and waste applications. Quick and easy to install by sliding onto the pipe during installation, they can also be retro-fitted by being spliced open to wrap around the pipe.
