|The Smooth Penetrator is used in new horizontal cable
installations for walls rated up to 2 hours. No caulk is required
between the sleeve and the wall. Our most economical product, it
makes firewall penetrations neat, clean, and efficient. This design
allows for cables to be pulled through the firewall without any
"attendance", even at a 45 degree angle. The sleeve acts like a
roller in the wall while cables are being pulled. A real time saver!
Intumescent putty is included. Fire stopped and smoke sealed 100% of the time.
Systems available in 1, 2, & 4 inch diameters. Part #'s are: SP-1 for the 1" - SP-2 for the 2" and SP-4 for the 4" Smooth Penetrator. See the Cable Load Chart for specifications.
Call the factory to order extra long or extra short systems for special applications. 24 hour turnaround!
