188.8.131.52 Pillow (also referred to as “bag” or “cushion”)
Malleable, pillow-like bag, filled with reactive or non-reactive material, for the temporary or permanent closing of penetrations or openings.
184.108.40.206 Pipe closure device
A pre-fabricated, heat activated device that, under fire exposure, acts to crush plastic pipes or service ducts that pass through vertical or horizontal separating elements and/or fill the hollow space with an intumescent foam. Two types are considered here: collars and wraps.
Collars incorporate an outer casing which acts as a restraint for an intumescent material, enabling the collar to be either surface fixed to the separating element or incorporated within it.
Wraps have no casing and hence must be located within the separating element, which acts as a restraint for the intumescent.
220.127.116.11 Pipe diameter
Where “pipe diameter” is used in this ETAG this refers to the nominal external diameter of the service pipe.
As blocks, but cylindrical/conical in shape (for circular penetrations).
Material similar to some sealants/mastics capable of being formed and directly installed by hand, but remaining in a plastic condition.
18.104.22.168 Sand Gasket
An open metal frame, which is fixed in a wall and filled with specific sand. The cables run through the sand.
Single or multi-component material, comprising organic and/or inorganic fillers pre-dispersed in a binder (i.e. acrylic, polysulphide, silicone etc.), that cures or dries after application to an elastic or plasto-elastic material.
22.214.171.124 Service support construction
A mechanical support provided in the form of clips, ties, hangers, ladder racks or trays, or any device designed to carry the load of the penetrating services.
126.96.36.199 Small cable penetration seal

See also Conduit.
