The FireSure® UFS is a ECO Friendly Low profile Universal Multifunction, Multipurpose Fire Seal.
By using the The FireSure® UFS you will be helping the climate by reducing CO2 and other emissions. The FireSure® UFS helps you reduce your carbon and energy footprint, and also reduces transport emissions and costs. The FireSure® UFS helps to achieve all of the above by its unique design and method of installation.
Because the FireSure® UFS sleeve wrap is designed to work with unlined and uninsulated (hollow) stud partitioning by traversing the void from one wall face to the opposite wall face, there is no longer any need to form or make metal sleeves, thereby reducing the CO2 and other emissions caused in the process of producing the steel. For every 1Kg of steel produced approximately 2.5-3.5 Kg of CO2
emissions are produced, this figure does not include all the emissions associated with the mining and transport operations for the iron ore etc. Further energy is saved by not having to mechanically fix the metal sleeve or collar.
The FireSure® UFS sleeve wrap is supplied and packaged flat, thereby reducing packaging materials and storage space required as opposed to preformed products. As an example, see product packaging below which shows how much less storage space is required on site This also means that fuel used and emissions from transporting goods are reduced by approximately 95% per equivalent cubic area, reducing Carbon dioxide (CO2 ), Carbon monoxide (CO), Nitrogen oxides (NO and NO2 , together called NOx), Hydrocarbons or volatile organic
The FireSure® UFS is designed to seal plastic pipework, rectangular, round or square plastic ducting, any shape that it can be formed around, including metal electrical cable trays etc. Designed and tested for use also with thin walled plastic pipe and ductwork of 1.5mm thickness and twin wall HDPE of 0.5mm wall thickness. Tested numerously to BS EN 1363-1:2012 and BS EN 1366-3:2009. Tested with Uncapped/Uncapped (U/U) configurations required for ventilation ducts.
