Abesco SS Pipe Collars are designed to prevent the spread of fire from one compartment to another where plastic pipes penetrate separating walls and floors.
Abesco SS Pipe Collars consist of a stainless steel shell, which contains heat reactive intumescent material. The unit is supplied in two semi circular halves and is held closed around the pipe by a unique and easy to use closure device.

Abesco SS Pipe Collars are suitable for use in any building with plastic pipes which penetrate through fire rated compartment floors and walls, including drywall.
Typical types of buildings where Abesco Pipe Collars are commonly used are :
Apartment buildings, hotels, dormitories, office buildings, hospitals, airports, multi-storey, retail centers, etc.
When exposed to the heat of a fire, the intumescent material contained in Abesco SS Pipe Collars expands and exerts a high pressure on the melting plastic pipe, causing the opening to be closed off and thus preventing the spread of fire from one compartment to another.
