Composition

The QWR CE Marked Fire Collars consist of a continuous pressed stainless steel flexible shell containing high performance graphite based intumescent material which reacts under the influence of heat to 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. The QWR CE Marked Fire Collar has built in fixing lugs which are used to secure it to the structure.

Durability

Tested to Type X durability which means the QWR Fire Collars can be installed in conditions exposed to weathering. QWR CE Marked Fire Collars are expected to last the lifetime of the building.

Application / installation


QWR CE Marked Fire Collars should be used where a plastic pipe penetrates a fire rated wall or floor. For vertical pipework, one unit should be installed to the underside of the floor. For horizontal pipework one unit should be fitted to each side of the wall.

The soffit of the floor or the face of the wall must be smooth and where there are irregularities in the surface, the space between the flange of the unit and floor or the wall should be made good using QSS QuelStop CE Marked Intumescent Acoustic Acrylic Sealant.

The QWR CE Marked Fire Collar should be fed around the plastic pipe, securing the ends together by passing the tongues on one end through the slots on the other end. The tongues should then be bent back and the unit secured to the structure using the integral fixing lugs.

The QWR CE Marked Fire Collar must be secured to concrete and masonry construction using steel sleeve anchors. Where fitting to a plasterboard partition wall one QWR CE Marked Fire Collar should be installed on either side of the partition and fixed using through-bolts or steel hollow wall sleeve anchors.

QWR CE Marked Fire Collars can also be installed in conjunction with the QB50 QuelStop Ablative Coated Mineral Wool Fire Batt. Please refer to Quelfire Technical department for details.
