3M™ Fire Barrier Cast-In Devices for Metal Pipes provide one-step firestopping for penetrations through fire-rated concrete floor assemblies. Instead of drilling holes, installers simply attach the devices directly to floor decking, pour slabs around them and route penetrants after curing. Heights are easily adjustable, and these intumescent devices are rated for up to 3-hour fire protection.
Easily adjust the height with only a pliers
Simply a Better Way to Firestop
Firestopping through concrete used to mean three things: pouring the concrete, core drilling holes, and firestopping later. Our 3M™ Fire Barrier Cast-In Devices
(PDF, 560 Kb) eliminate the time and expense of firestopping metallic penetrants using extra materials such as pipe devices, strips and caulk. This allows for secure, permanent firestop installation before concrete is poured. A series of built-in tear strips makes for fast, easy height adjustment: using only a pliers, installers can quickly adjust the height in 1/2 inch increments from its maximum 8 inches (203.2 mm) to as low as 2-1/2 inches (57.2 mm). The device secures easily to floor decking, and its one-piece design withstands the everyday impact and wear of the construction site. Its black cap, easily visible after pour, signifies it as a pass-through device for metallic penetrants.
