STI launches EZ-Path retrofit device at BICSI; fire-rated pathway attachment restores compliance to overfilled cable sleeves

Jan. 25, 2017
Now cabling installers can can instantly convert existing deficient, overfilled cable sleeves to 100 percent code-compliant sleeves in seconds.

Firestop industry stalwart Specified Technologies, Inc. (STI) has announced a new addition to its EZ-Path family of fire-rated and smoke-rated cable pathway devices, with the introduction of its EZ-Path Retrofit Device. Making its industry debut at this week's BICSI Winter Conference, the EZ-Path Retrofit Device will be available for purchase from all authorized STI distributors thereafter.

According to STI's product press release, "This newly designed and innovative concept can instantly convert existing deficient, overfilled cable sleeves to 100 percent code-compliant sleeves in seconds. By simply clamping onto the end of the steel sleeve, this two-piece device incorporates intumescent technology to expand and close off the path for fire."

The product description continues, "With its complementary square shape, blending into the look and feel of the EZ-Path family, the new EZ-Path Retrofit Device plays a functional role permitting cables to spill out of the sleeve and travel in any direction – an important function for existing buildings with cables traveling in various directions. Each device is fitted with additional smoke-sealing foam to provide very low L Rating values to minimize smoke leakage, and the devices are able to accommodate bushings snapped or screwed onto the ends of the sleeves."

“The EZ-Path Retrofit Device can accommodate cable fills up to 100 percent visual fill and immediately places the cable sleeves in full compliance, eliminating citations, and can quickly remedy the deficiencies found during a survey,” comments James P. Stahl Jr., CFPS, CDT, Vice President & General Manager, Engineering and Emerging Businesses for STI. “Not only is the system UL Certified, but it provides up to two-hour fire ratings in all common constructions. The EZ-Path Retrofit Device is a quick, economical and sustainable solution.”
