Firestop Solutions For
Data Center

Unique Problems Require Unique Solutions

The Data Center environment represents a unique design challenge compared to other occupancy types. In addition to concerns over maintaining Fire Life Safety Compliance, Data Center operators need to consider robustness of seals against leakage of conditioned air, physical security, and increase cable count and density within their cable pathway. EZ-Path® Fire-rated Pathways meet these challenges providing field and laboratory tested configurations protecting occupants and assets in the event of fire as well as during day to day Data Center operation without impacting Technicians work.

Maximizing Density of Cables in the Pathway While Minimizing Space Utilization

Only EZ-Path® can truly maximize the capacity of your cable pathway while using a minimum of space. Our high-density brackets can support up to 12 of our Series 44+ Devices into nominal 1-1/2 square feet of space, eliminating the need to individually bundle and waterfall cables as they pass through fire-rated wall and floor assemblies. Freeing valuable wall and floor space for other services that support your infrastructure.

With a range of mounting plate configurations EZ-Path® is the most adaptable cable pathway solution that configures to your pathway needs. Modular grid systems, single device plates, horizontal and vertical ganging plates, as well as solutions for new and existing construction make EZ-Path® the most versatile solution for achieving compliance in the cable pathway, adapting to meet your needs instead of forcing the pathway to adapt to your firestop system.

The EZ-Path® Family of Cable Pathway Solutions

EZ Path® Fire-Rated Pathways are the only self-sealing fire and smoke devices that are exempt from maintenance requirements. EZ Path® Pathways have no moving parts and require no action to activate the internal sealing mechanism, making them the only rated firestop device that are compliant right out of the box.

Data Center Firestop Applications

Ease Of Use

Each EZ Path® Device incorporates a self-sealing mechanism that takes the guess work out of maintaining fire, smoke, and air leakage seals. Unlike other solutions, only EZ Path takes care of itself adjusting automatically as cables are added, changed, or removed while maintaining all ratings with cable fills ranging from 0 up to 100% visual fill making each device maintenance free

Energy And Cost Savings

The built-in sealing mechanism of each EZ Path forms a robust seal against the passage of fire, smoke, and air. Reducing air flow and minimizing the loss of conditioned air from the server floor into neighboring compartments.


When it comes to data centers, there are no one-size-fits all solutions. The modular nature of EZ Path allows us to create custom retaining brackets to meet any site conditions. Let our engineering team develop custom mounting hardware for your next project that meets your design’s demands without compromising fire, smoke, and air leakage performance.

Protecting Critical Infrastructure

Operation of critical circuits in the event of a fire is paramount to ensure operation when these services are needed most. E Wrap™ Endothermic Wrap is the ideal solution for protecting critical infrastructure such as backup generator fuel lines, fire pumps and signaling circuits.

Digital Tools

Maintaining compliance of fire life safety systems in the Data Center is critical to ensure protection of assets and staff alike in a disaster scenario. Our FS Locator tool allows you to inspect and document the status of all of your passive fire protection systems from your browser or mobile device
