All data, video, and communications cable bundles shall utilize an enclosed fire-rated pathway device wherever said cables penetrate rated walls. The fire-rated pathway shall contain a built-in fire sealing system sufficient to maintain the hourly fire rating of the barrier being penetrated. The self contained sealing system shall automatically adjust to the installed cable loading and shall permit cables to be installed, removed, or retrofitted without the need to remove or reinstall firestop materials. The pathway shall be UL Classified and tested to the requirements of ASTM E814 (UL1479).
No maintenance of the pathway is normally required. The interior of the device should be inspected before and after any modifications to the cable bundle. If any damage to the intumescent pads lining the top and bottom of the pathway is found, contact the factory to obtain replacements.
The use of this device is subject to local, regional and national codes. Consult the local Building Code Official or Authority Having Jurisdiction regarding any regional or local requirements that might influence the selection or use of this product.
