Unmatched Fire Protection
Continuously Stopping Fire… Without Continuously Firestopping!
Conventional cable firestopping methods require you to remove firestopping as cables are added. Sooner or later a critical decision point is reached… Is there enough firestopping left to do the job? Worse yet…Was any of the firestopping actually reinstalled?
With the EZ-Path® System, those critical decisions go away. Firestopping is never removed and need never be reinstalled. Protection is immediate and permanent! Always on guard. Always ready to protect your facility.
Protection You Can Count On!
Fast acting intumescent materials react quickly to choke off any potential path for fire.
With no critical installation decisions, no materials to remove or reinstall, EZ-Path® takes the human element away and makes cable protection fail-safe!

Reliable Smoke Sealing
The ONLY Cable Retrofit Solution Providing Truly RELIABLE & PREDICTABLE Smoke Sealing.
When it comes to smoke sealing, conventional cable firestop systems are often inadequate and almost always unpredictable. Round cables in round sleeves simply do not nest tightly. Even with a visually full sleeve up to 50% of the cross-sectional area may be empty providing a pathway for smoke.
EZ-Path’s square shape allows cables to nest more tightly raising loading efficiency to as much as 85%. This means less smoke. And unlike other products, EZ-Path’s published ratings are not dependent on the installation of additional putty or pieces of foam.
NFPA Life Safety Code® Compliant
18.104.22.168 Penetrations for cables, cable trays, conduits…that pass through a wall, floor, or floor ceiling assembly constructed as a smoke barrier, or through the ceiling membrane of the roof/ceiling of a smoke barrier assembly, shall be protected by a system or material capable of restricting the passage of smoke.

Enclosure Integrity for Gaseous Suppression Systems
Is EZ-Path® a more predictable choice for cable penetrations?
When it comes to engineering gaseous suppression systems, traditional sealing methods for cable penetrations such as caulk or putty or devices integrating foam plugs or requiring an action to open or close the device, introduce variables that can make designing effective enclosures a difficult task.
Since EZ-Path® is essentially self-sealing, we have often been asked about how it might perform in this environment. We posed this question to one of the foremost authorities on enclosure integrity testing in North America, Tim Lochner, a professional engineer who designed, developed, and provided instruction on the equipment used to run the pressure tests dictated by the relevant standards.
Follow the link below to find out why Tim feels that EZ-Path’s predictable performance makes it worth considering for these applications.
EZ-Path® Leakage Analysis | EZ-Path® Leakage Performance
Gaseous suppression systems rely on the integrity of the enclosure to retain the extinguishing agent in the event of a fire. In such environments, sealing is essential. Enclosure integrity testing dictated by NFPA 2001 helps the designer ensure that the proper amount of agent is dispensed and that it will not be lost prematurely thereby allowing re-ignition of a fire.
Save Time & Money
The Only Truly Automatic Firestop System!
When it comes to traditional firestopping methods, you never stop paying. You pay to put it in and every time you make cable changes, you do it again. The more changes you make, the more it costs you both in time and money… Not to mention disruption!
With the EZ-Path® System, firestopping is a one-time event! No sealant, putty, or foam pads to remove and replace. Nothing to adjust. Nothing to loosen and re-tighten!
Compare Life Cycle Cost
When compared to traditional sleeves sealed with sealant or putty, EZ-Path® will have paid for itself In just three cable changes or less.
The savings will increase with each additional cable change!
Unexcelled Cable Management
Firestopping is No Longer the Problem…It’s the SOLUTION!
EZ-Path® customers benefit from greatly enhanced cable management. The EZ-Path® System allows cable installations to be easily organized by type, use, or trade… Or any other way that you might like to do it.
Pathways installed in walls or floors provide managed portals through which cables can easily be routed. Install just one pathway or gang as required for additional capacity or better cable organization.
+ Color Coded Series 33 Pathways
Color-coded pathways make it easy to identify cable installations without the need to climb up ladders to read wall labels.
