Promat fire collars are the market leading fire collars in Australia. Plastic pipes as they penetrate through fire rated walls and floors require fire collars to ensure heat, smoke, fire and gases can’t move between compartments within a building. Promat’s range of fire collars are very popular with plumbers with over 30 years of testing behind the products. Promat fire rated collars are manufactured using intumescent technology. Promat’s collars are designed to maintain the integrity of the fire resistant element through which plastic pipes, combustible insulation, cables or fibre optic facilities pass. Promat fire collars have been tested in lightweight construction, concrete floor slabs as well as new walling products such as Speed Panel. In the event of fire, the plastic pipe will start to deform. In the case of uPVC pipes this occurs at a temperature of approximately 70°C. Once the pipe starts to deform, the intumescent material in the Promat fire collar expands, closing off the plastic pipe or combustible insulation, and thus forming an insulating barrier.
