Through penetration firestop systems tested to withstand movement

April 24, 2020 - Over the life of a building, movement occurs - causing a penetrating item of a through penetration to move relevant to the hole, even when rigidly supported. This may impact the performance of a rated firestopping assembly. It’s important to have a method to consider movement and the impact on firestopping.

Hilti is the first manufacturer to have UL certified firestop systems with movement capability of the system tested and documented in the respective UL listings. We have successfully tested and certified a variety of our systems, from those that use sealants, such as FS-ONE Max, to preformed devices, such as the speed sleeve CP 653 or firestop blocks CFS-BL.
