EZ Path Firestop makes life easier?

Sure it does! When compared to traditional firestopping methods, you never stop paying. You pay to put it in and every time you make cable changes, you do it again. The more changes you make, the more it cost you both in time and money and not to mention disruption.

With the EZ-Path System, firestopping is a one-time event! No sealent, putty, or foam pads to remove and replace. Nothing to adjust. Nothing to loosen and re-tighten! When comparing cost to traditional sleeves sealed with putty, the EZ-Path will have paid for itself in just 3 cable changes or less.

Let’s get a better look at this cool firestopping technology.

You might also be asking yourself why is it square? The square shape allows cables to nest more tightly raising loading efficiency to as much as 85%. This means less smoke!

Now let’s look at the internal safety feature.

What do codes require?

STI is not concerned about smoke!

A Category 6 “Half U” 24 port patch panel?!

As you know, some data centers are really pack and space is a high premium so I could see how installing a few of these in a cabinet can go a long way, especially when things get crowded.

Here’s a couple of examples.
