Segments – Data Communications

Data Communications

STI understands the complexities of data and communication cabling distribution in the built environment. We provide end-to-end fire and smoke sealing solutions that alleviate the headaches associated with conventional firestopping methods.

As the building’s physical plant expands, numerous cable moves, additions, and changes (MACs) are required, and traditional firestop solutions such as caulks or putties maybe removed and not replaced, leading to building, safety, or fire code-compliance issues.

  • EZ-Path Code Compliance and Maintenance-Free Sealing Independently Validated by UL
  • Re-enterable Firestop Products
  • Non-rated Applications for Smoke, Acoustics, and General Air Sealing
  • Most Comprehensive Testing Package
  • Reduce or Eliminate Maintenance
  • Data Center Demands

EZ-Path Code Compliance and Maintenance-Free Sealing Independently Validated by UL

EZ-Path® Fire Rated Pathways are subject to a third-party, UL Evaluation Report that provides verification of compliance with the International Building Code®, NFPA 101, “Life Safety Code®”, and the International Fire Code®! Additionally, it corroborates the maintenance-free nature of EZ-Path®! Click here to read the report.

Re-enterable Firestop Products

In addition to EZ-Path®, STI offers a family of re-enterable firestop products for openings where frequent cable moves, additions, or changes will take place. We coined the term, “High Traffic Openings” to describe these applications, and STI’s range of re-enterable firestop products are optimized to make MAC work a cinch. To learn more, please visit the product pages for SpecSeal® Firestop Pillows, SpecSeal® Firestop Putty, and our Ready® Sleeve Firestop Kits.

Non-rated Applications for Smoke, Acoustics, and General Air Sealing

STI has a line of non-rated EZ-Path® Pathways for wall or ceiling conditions. The molded devices with self-sealing membranes improve the aesthetics of cable installations, while also providing remedial sealing function for smoke, acoustics, and general air sealing. The National Electrical Code® (NEC; NFPA 70) defines sleeves as “sections of conduit or tubing used to protect exposed wiring from physical damage”. EZ-Path® Smoke & Acoustical Pathways provide support and protection to sensitive communications cabling.

Most Comprehensive Testing Package

The EZ-Path® System is the industry’s most advanced cable sealing system. Designed to provide unmatched flexibility, EZ-Path is tested to ASTM E814, UL1479, and CAN/ULC-S115 for 1, 2, 3, or 4 hours in all common constructions. The self-adjusting, self-closing intumescent foam pad system accommodates cable MACs while maintaining fire ratings and L Ratings for particulate air and smoke.

Restore Compliance to Overfilled Cable Sleeves

The EZ-Path® Retrofit Device can accommodate cable fills up to 100 percent visual fill and immediately places the cable sleeves in full compliance, eliminating citations, and can quickly remedy the deficiencies found during a survey. Not only is the system UL® Certified, but it provides up to two-hour fire ratings in all common constructions. The EZ-Path® Retrofit Device is a quick, economical and sustainable solution.

Reduce or Eliminate Maintenance

Fire Codes, such as ICC’s International Fire Code® (IFC) mandate that firestop systems must be continuously maintained for the life of the structure. STI Systems are designed to vastly reduce maintenance. The EZ-Path System can actually eliminate maintenance since it contains no moving parts and requires no action to activate the internal sealing system. Competitive products do require action to activate the sealing function such as a twist-closure or insertion of a foam plug or putty. Therefore, those methods require routine inspection and maintenance to ensure ongoing code compliance.

Data Center Demands

Data centers and MAC work go hand-in-hand, and STI can help. EZ-Path® is a great choice for this environment, particularly where gaseous suppression systems are used. Such systems are designed to dispense the prescribed amount of clean agent, and enclosure integrity is an important consideration. Vent flows into and out of the enclosure can be problematic. EZ-Path® is the best choice because it offers predictable performance 100% of the time. With known air leakage values and an automatic sealing system, engineering calculations are always correct.
