FS-ONE MAX intumescent firestop sealant

Hilti’s new intumescent firestop sealant FS-ONE MAX is an improved version of the company’s popular FS-ONE firestop sealant. The new sealant still embodies the reliable features of the original FS-ONE, but now provides for better handling and longer shelf life. Its “new W-rated, multi-purpose formulation means this highly versatile product can be used for even more common through-penetrations in a variety of base materials, including concrete, masonry, and drywall,” says the company. The sealant is easy to dispense and is available in multiple package types (tubes, foil packs and buckets) to meet a variety of project needs. The product’s 12-month shelf life from date of manufacture helps reduce the risk of expired inventory. Now ethylene glycol-free, the sealant’s low VOC content also makes it an environmentally safe formulation that is non-harmful when used as directed.

Large-format fire resistive wall box

FSR’s PWB-FR-450, a large format wall box, provides multiple infrastructure mounting solutions for larger interfaces or equipment behind a display, or in other custom applications. Fire-resistive material is integrated within the unit’s door assembly, providing 1 hour of protection. The rugged 14-gauge steel back box installs between wood or steel studs, leaving proper spacing for the door to mount flush with the wall’s surface. Connections and cables are hidden behind the cover for a neat, elegant look. Three prewired integrated AC outlets aid installation. Internal compartments have a three-fourths-inch KO and concentric KO that goes up to 1.5 inches in the box’s top and bottom for cable/conduit entry. A two-part vented cover provides convection cooling for internal components. One or all of the internal brackets can be removed for custom configurations. This box has also been designed to accommodate Crestron’s larger DM-RMC-4K-SCALER-C 4K scaler/room receiver. Hardware is included.

2-hour fire resistive CIC cables

Comtran’s VITALink 2 Hour Fire Resistive CIC cables are designed to protect critical life safety systems, including emergency voice alarm communications, area of refuge and firefighter’s telephone systems, and visible notification appliances. Withstanding heat up to 1850 deg. F for 2 hours, these cables are vital in hospitals, high-rise buildings, government buildings, universities, airports, and stadiums where evacuation times are beyond the capabilities of standard fire alarm cabling or when partial evacuation is required. The VITALink cables are available in a wide range of constructions including 12-16 AWG stranded conductors, 12-18 AWG solid conductors, and in shielded and unshielded designs. All VITALink cables meet the requirements of UL 2196 and CAN/ULC S-139 with hose stream test. They also meet the survivability requirements of NFPA 72, 130, and 502. According to the company, “with the best conduit fill and longest vertical installation distance approved in the industry, installers can save money, time, labor, and space using VITALink.”
