What is a fire protection cable tube or cable box?

A fire protection cable tube or box is a pre-assembled, square or round structure with a fire retardant effect that is inserted into walls or floors. Cables and other services can be passed through this structure and are thus sealed against fire. The fire retardant effect of the structure is achieved by an inner lining of intumescent material that expands in case of fire and seals the opening of the structure.

How do fire protection cable tube work?

The cable tube has an inner lining made of fire protection material that expands when it is exposed to heat and thus seals the opening. It is therefore sealed against the passage of fire and heat. The openings of the tube are sealed against the passage of cold smoke by means of a soft foam plug and a sealing compound, for example.

What fire resistance do fire protection cable tubes and boxes have?

Cable tubes and cable boxes are available in different lengths for low (30 minutes) to very high fire resistance requirements (120 minutes).

Where is a fire protection cable tube and cable box used?

What materials are fire protection cable tubes made of?
