SLIPSIL plugs and adapter plugs withstand a two-hour fire test for building applications
SLIPSIL plugs on their own and in combination with SLIPSIL adapters from Beele Engineering successfully passed a two-hour fire test performed in accordance with the NEN-EN 1366-3:2009 standard. The fire test was performed with lead-throughs of copper and steel tubing in a wall of cellular concrete blocks. All fourteen plug configurations successfully withstood the test and can therefore be used in all the common types of concrete and cellular concrete walls in the building sector. The integrity and thermal insulation of the SLIPSIL (adapter) plugs are, respectively, E 120-C/U and EI 120-C/U in accordance with the EN 13501-2:2007 standard.

The lead-throughs tested used high-quality fire-resistant plastic sleeves developed by Beele Engineering that were inserted into pre-drilled holes in the wall. These can also be cast into normal concrete. After installing the steel and copper pipes, the lead-through sleeves were sealed with SLIPSIL plugs and SLIPSIL adapter plugs.
This means that a single solution is available that has been approved for copper and steel tubing in both cast-in tubes and drilled holes.

SLIPSIL plugs from Beele Engineering are made from high-quality NOFIRNO rubber and have been specially developed for fire-resistant, gas-tight and waterproof sealing of lead-throughs for one or more metal or plastic tubes. The plug is extremely easy to install and can be exposed to high pressures immediately after installation.

SLIPSIL adapter plugs are specially developed for oversized lead-throughs. The SLIPSIL adapter plugs can be installed in the standard SLIPSIL plugs.

The high-quality rubber material of the SLIPSIL (adapter) plug also retains its properties over the long term and is resistant to the effects of weathering, UV, ozone, shocks and vibrations. The rubber can be used in a temperature range of -50 °C to +180 °C, so the plugs can be used just as well in arctic conditions as for high temperature and steam pipes.
