Simply a Better Way to Firestop

This makes it easier to assemble ideally-sized firestops for specific penetrations in floors and walls, installed to the correct compressions for maximum effectiveness in new construction or retrofit applications. No wire mesh, steel cover plates or other additional support is required. The pillows are fully re-enterable and reusable — the interlocking hook and loop strips can be released by hand, making it easy to reconfigure firestop pillows as additional services are added or relocated. They are firestop tested up to 3 hours in accordance with ASTM E 814 (UL 1479) and CAN/ULC-S115 when installed in listed systems.
