FyreBOX Cast-In:

Trafalgar’s FyreBOX Cast-In is a versatile multi-service passive fire penetration system that can be directly cast into building floor slabs. It is designed to prevent the spread of fire through service penetrations while minimizing the space required for riser shafts and cupboards.

FyreBOX Cast-In Features:

  • Intumescent Lined System: The FyreBOX Cast-In features an intumescent lining that expands in the event of a fire, effectively sealing off the penetration.
  • Tight seal and crushes off plastic pipes during a fire: In case of a fire, it forms a tight seal around services and can crush plastic pipes and pipe insulation, ensuring a secure barrier against fire spread.
  • Intumescent foam plugs: Fitted with intumescent foam plugs, the system offers superior reliability and acoustic properties as well as a smoke seal.
  • Allows for flexibility and Future Proofing: The FyreBOX Cast-In allows for easy adds, moves, and changes, providing flexibility in the building’s service layout, throughout the life of the building.
    Compliance with industry standards: It has been rigorously tested to meet the AS1530.4-2014 standard for a range of mixed services.
  • High Fire Resistance Levels (FRLs): The system offers industry-leading FRLs of -/90/90, -/120/120 and  -/240/240 (system specific), ensuring effective fire containment.
