FAQ - Applications

Which system to use with the different penetration types.

The CSD sealing systems are the versatile and easily installed systems in the world. If a system is not easily installed it is likely that it won’t be installed correctly and will fail when it is needed most.
This is one of the reasons the design engineers use and specify CSD.

Hollow walls, ceilings & floors:

  • Hollow structures will always require the CSD sleeve system to contain the sealing product.

  • A FIRSTO or CSD Extension system may be used if there is a sufficient structure inside the cavity to mount onto.
  • Solid walls, ceilings & floors:

  • Solid structures don’t require the CSD sleeve system as the solid mass will contain the sealing product.

  • A FIRSTO or CSD Extension system should be used if the structure is not thick enough to offer the sufficient depth required in the penetration.

Cable penetrations

For round penetrations use:

  • RISE Rapid sleeves with either FIWA or NOFIRNO Sealants

For square or rectangular shape penetrations use:

  • ACTIFOAM system with either FIWA or NOFIRNO sealants

  • a combination of RISE rapid and ACTIFOAM, with either FIWA or NOFIRNO sealants

  • also NORFINO board may be used to fill or plug oversize opening

Plastic Pipe penetrations

For round penetrations use:

  • the RISE /ULTRA sleeve with either FIWA or NOFIRNO Sealants

  • RISE Rapid sleeves with either FIWA or NOFIRNO Sealants

  • a combination of RISE/ULTRA and RISE Rapid sleeves with either FIWA or NOFIRNO Sealants

  • a combination of RISE/ULTRA and ACTIFOAM strips with either FIWA or NOFIRNO Sealants

  • the CRUSHER plug system

For square or rectangular shape penetrations use:

  • a combination of RISE/ULTRA and ACTIFOAM strips with either FIWA or NOFIRNO Sealants

  • ACTIFOAM system with either FIWA or NOFIRNO sealants

Mixed Pipe and Cable penetrations

For round penetrations use:

  • the RISE Rapid sleeves with either FIWA or NOFIRNO Sealants

  • a combination of RISE/ULTRA and RISE Rapid sleeves with either FIWA or NOFIRNO Sealants

For square or rectangular shape penetrations:

  • Pipes will use a combination of RISE/ULTRA and ACTIFOAM strips with either FIWA or NOFIRNO Sealants
