Future Proof Plates

Future Proof Plates (FPP’s) are Special Order firestop tools for new construction that allow architects, designers and engineers to plan, centralize, install and maintain firewall penetrations made by cable installers- for the life of a new building.

This UNIQUE product is designed to be used as a template for various size sleeves to be installed in the future, only when needed. Do not penetrate the firewall until it is time to do so. FPP’s can be designed with multiple holes for all the different types of cabling to be installed, smoke sealed and fire stopped. Install the FPP’s in pairs on both sides of the firewall by screwing them to the wall studs or anchoring in block walls. FPP’s can be used with any type of mechanical sleeve system on the market today.

To order Unique Firestop Caulk, an installer’s toolbox staple, see Unique Firestop Caulk.

All FPP’s are powder coated RED and made from .068 cold roll steel. They are available in unlimited configurations to group your cable media as well as to ensure consistent AHJ acceptance. Made in our factory in the USA and prices start at under $100 per pair.

Assembly Instructions

To install a pair of Future Proof Plates (FPP’s), the installer chooses a spot above the ceiling and between wall studs with easy access and that is devoid of any conduits or wires. He installs the first FPP by leveling and screwing it (or anchoring it) to the wall studs. Seal the FPP’s with a bead of caulk behind each plate around each of the holes on both sides of the firewall.

The FPP holes do not need to be drilled out until needed. However, you may wish to install and seal firestop sleeves for future use.

To install sleeves through the Future Proof Plate, use a drill with a level and short extension for your hole saw. Drill through the installed first plate and through the wall on the other side taking care to keep hole bit level and straight. Align and level the second FPP on the opposite side of wall and secure it in place. An alignment sleeve can be used immediately for cabling with our UNIQUE intumescent putty or it can be puttied and sealed for future use with the supplied End Caps. Now the FPP’s are aligned and ready for sleeves as they are needed.
