Big Fire Collars

Friday, July 12, 2013

Big fire collars, I am talking about the big suckers, the 200mm, 250mm and 300mm diameters. The plastic may take a little longer to melt and fire collars to activate but they are quite effective. That is why strict adherence to the data sheet and test approvals is crucial to installation of these fire collars. There is a good chance that the fire collars will not work if they are not installed with the correct orientation and fixings.
