Firestop Grommet Added to STI's Line of EZ Path® Fire Rated Pathways STI Now Offers Firestop Pathway Solutions from 1 to 5000 Cables
Jan. 21, 2013
/PRNewswire/ -- STI recently shifted its Ready® Firestop Grommet to their line of fire rated pathways and have renamed the product EZ Path® Firestop Grommet. STI's EZ Path firestop grommets are engineered to permanently seal cable penetrations through fire-rated walls.
Ray Bruno, Vice President of Sales and Marketing explains, "The decision to move our firestop grommet into the EZ Path family was an easy one. This specially designed firestop grommet is the ideal pathway solution for small or a small number of cables penetrating fire rated walls and supports our one cable to 5,000 cables no caulk, no putty, zero maintenance solution."
EZ Path Firestop Grommets eliminate the need for sleeves, sealant and putty, which can be time consuming expensive and messy. Requiring no special tools, the two-piece grommet snaps together quickly around the cable(s) and locks tightly into the wall. The cable(s) are smoke-sealed and firestopped in minutes with no sleeve, sealant or putty required. The split design makes them ideal for both new or previous installed cables.
The grommets provide up to two-hour rating in gypsum board and stud wall assemblies. They are UL® Classifed, and tested and approved to meet the exacting criteria of ASTM E814 (UL1479) and CAN/ULC S115. The RFG1 grommet is designed to seal single low voltage cables or smaller cable bundles with a max 0.27 inch (7mm) OD and the RFG2 grommet is designed to seal a single low voltage cable or a cable bundle with a max 0.53 inch (14mm) OD.
