New certification awarded to fire collar

Published:  17 September, 2018

A fire protection product has received a “significant” new CE Marking.

QuelCast’s Cast in Fire Collars prevent the spread of fire through plastic pipes and cables as they pass through fire compartment floors.

They were tested in accordance with BS EN 1366-3: 2009, and were found to meet insulation and integrity criteria for up to four hours.

As part of the CE Mark certification, every batch of QuelCast collars undergoes a series of tests to guarantee performance.

The company is audited by Warrington Certification, and inspectors regularly visit its factory to verify that manufacturing is carried out to the same standards as the products that were fire tested for CE certification.

Managing Director Keith Wells said: “The CE Mark approval on our cast in fire collars is a significant accomplishment for Quelfire.

“The fire collars meet the rigorous and high safety standards that we have set for all passive fire protection products.”
