Composition

QuelCast CE Marked Fire Collars are constructed from a robust polypropylene material and contain a high performance intumescent material which reacts under the influence of heat. This will exert pressure on the pipe as it softens, to form a carbonaceous char which provides an effective insulation plug thus preventing smoke and fire passing through to the adjoining compartment.

Standards & Approvals

  • Fire resistance testing to BS EN 1366-3:2009
  • EI60, EI120, EI180, EI240
  • Classified to EN 13501-2: 2007 + A1: 2009

Application / installation


The QuelCast CE Marked Cast In Fire Collar has been designed at 250mm high to meet the requirements of most applications.

Simple installations steps:

  1. Mark the formwork with a cross where the pipe is to pass through the floor
  2. Position the QuelCast CE Marked Cast In Fire Collar as required (the centre line marks on the QuelCast Collars and Manifold help to position in the correct location)
  3. Attach to the formwork using screws or nails through the holes in the 4 corners of the unit
  4. Pour the concrete to the required depth
  5. On completion of concrete curing, remove all formwork and shuttering
  6. Remove the cap from the top of the QuelCast Collar
  7. Place the pipe through the QuelCast Collar

Additional instructions for QuelCast50:

For the QuelCast50 CE Marked Cast In Fire Collar, the space between the pipe and the outer casing of the QuelCast50 should be ‘backfilled’ with mineral wool from the rubber smoke seal to the top of the floor slab.

QuelCast Manifold

The QuelCast Manifold has been designed and developed to create a 75 mm recess in the floor slab either on the top or on the bottom of the floor slab to allow for applications for example:

  • Shower traps for walk-in showers and wet rooms
  • Soil pipe manifolds
  • Pipe connections
  • Limited ceiling space

 

Where there is limited ceiling space and so the plastic pipe can be installed closer to the ceiling with the pipe connection recessed in the slab.

When installing the QuelCast Manifold on the underside of the floor slab, ensure that you cut off the spigot on the manifold and then, using self-tapping steel screws, secure the QuelCast110 Cast In Fire Collar to the manifold.

When installing the Manifold on the top side of the floor slab, the Manifold spigot is simply slotted into the top of the QuelCast110 Cast In Fire Collar.
