Before you go purchasing Firestop material make sure you have the correct type for your installation, measure twice cut once. Here’s a great overview video of many different types of products for your particular installation.

Let’s take a look at one of the more popular item in that video, the Composite Sheet.

The Composite Sheet is an excellent choice for medium to large openings through common constructions, cable trays that handle communications and power, multiple metallic conduits, tubing and more. You can also cut and shape it to your desire using common sheet metal tools and when burns it expands up to 15X original size and that’s amazing!

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!
