Kooltherm FireSleeves

Kingspan Kooltherm Fire Sleeve used for pipework

Why Kingspan Kooltherm FireSleeves?

Building Regulations around the world will require that where mechanical and engineering penetrations occur within a building, that they are effectively fire stopped. Failure to do so may undermine the compartmentalisation of the building, allowing flames and smoke to spread uninterrupted vertically and laterally through the concealed building cavities, putting both property and life at risk.

For pipework, the simplest solution is often to fit a fire sleeve with vapour barriers maintained as the insulated pipework passes through the building element. Kingspan’s Kooltherm FireSleeves are an ideal solution offering a 2 hour fire rating and all the benefits of Kooltherm FM Pipe Insulation.

These innovative products act as a 2 hour fire stop to BS EN 1366, on both steel and copper pipe service penetrations through timber frame and block wall applications, and incorporate the excellent fire and smoke performance of Kooltherm FM Pipe Insulation.
