Available in a wide range of shapes and sizes Zylo pipe boxing and pipe casings can be applied for boxing in fire sprinklers, ductwork, heating pipes, cables and all manner of building services; cut to size on site with minimum fuss, saving on installation time and material costs.

Not all pipe and fire sprinkler boxing brands have been tested to the European Reaction to Fire Classification System. Therefore, when choosing pipe boxing or fire sprinkler boxing it may be wise to check with the manufacturer that the finished product including any coating has been tested, not just the materials, as changes during manufacture may affect the original classification.

Zylo has been fire tested to EN13501-1 with a ventilated cavity behind to reproduce the effects during product installation. During indicative tests it was found that using fire retardant board for boxing would result in the same classification as moisture resistant board due to the application of the product. Indeed the fire retardant compliant board performed worse for smoke production in our tests. Thickness of material is also a consideration as a thinner material will result in a lower classification.
