Correctly sealing fire penetrations proves to be an ongoing challenge for plumbers in today’s built environment. Pipeworks, and the gaps around them, which are used for plumbing and drainage in buildings, pose a risk if not treated, and therefore maintain the integrity of a fire protection barrier system. 

Fire Stopping is our third pillar of passive fire protection, and pertains to how service penetrations and all openings in walls, floors and ceilings are managed to uphold their fire-resistance rating.

Fire Stopping solutions for plumbers should be considered in the early stages of a project, to ensure penetrations are correctly supported on both sides, treated and will close in the event of fire to prevent the passage of flames and flammable, toxic gases.

Progressive Materials stocks Promat’s Fire Stopping Systems, which have been tested and assessed in line with the National Construction Code. Our solutions are designed to impede the spread of fire through penetrations such as pipes used in plumbing and drainage services. We work with plumbers to ensure they are maintaining the fire-resistance rating of walls, floors and ceilings when installing pipes, through the provision of a variety of products such as pillows, fire batts, fire mortar, fire mastic’s, fire collars and seals.

Passive Fire Stopping Systems for Plumbers

Progressive Materials stocks Promat’s fire stopping systems which are designed to maintain the fire-resistance rating of a wall and or floor.
All of Promat’s fire stopping systems are tested to AS 1530: Part 4 and AS 4072 Part 1. The PROMASEAL® range of fire stopping systems are stored in our local warehouse, with the majority of fire stopping systems having been made in Australia. We provide training on how to correctly treat a wide range of building services as they penetrate through fire walls and floors. There is a network of competent trained installers that can provide certification of the tested systems to ensure compliance to the Australian Standards.

Fire collars

Floor waste collars vs Stack collars

Did you know that you require a different collar for floor waste penetrations?

Floor waste collars are defined as penetrations that terminate at floor level with a grate for waste water. Stack pipes are when a piece of pipe continues above floor level. When manufacturers test floor waste penetrations to AS1530.4 they are required to place thermocouples in the centre of the grating (unless otherwise determined by the test lab). This location of thermocouples causes temperature rise to be recorded quicker than that of a stack pipe penetration. This factor requires innovative design with the fire collar in which the function of the collar is activated as fast as possible. The intent is to create an insulating barrier in a shorter amount of time, which will reduce heat transfer and fire spread from the fire side to the non-fire side.

Metal Pipes

Choose the right fire protection for metal pipes

Metal pipes as the pass through fire walls and floors require passive protection to reinstate the FRL of the wall or floor in which it passes.

Depending on if the pipe is lagged or not, will determine the type of protection required for the metal pipe. Black nitrate lagging can be protected with PROMASEAL® FlexiWrap or Promat Retrofit Fire Collars. Metal pipes not protected with condensation or thermal lagging can be protected with PROMASEAL® SupaWrap or PROMASEAL® SupaWrap Pipe Sleeves. Before installing any of these products please consult Progressive Materials, as approvals vary for various wall and floor types.

Approved Fixings

Choose the right fixing for fire collars

Did you know that approved fixings are required with the installation of fire collars to be compliant installation?

Fixings need to be made from steel and be free from plastics, composites and certain types of alloys. A full list of approved fixings can is available on the fixings technical bulletin.

FAQs

Why are fire collars required on both sides of a fire rated wall and only one side of a floor slab?

Fire collars are required on both sides of a wall for 2 critical reasons. Firstly when testing fire collars in a wall configuration, the manufacturer sets up the test with one collar on each side of the wall (excluding the PROMASEAL FCW Collar) during a fire test. Often both collars activate during a fire test. On-site the installer is required to install the fire collar in the same way it was tested- that being with one collar on each side of the wall. The other critical reason is that firewalls often provide fire protection from a fire in both directions. The use of collars on each side protects against 2 potential fire sources.

Can you paint fire collars?

Fire collars can be painted, a water-based paint is recommended.
