Holes in between suspending ceil and hollowcore

Recommended Posts

Hi 

I have 2 questions please. 
I have hollowcore , then 150 suspended ceiling . The electrics and mvhr people broke out holes to get services thru in this area . Do I need to mortar up around these on internal walls? . Is it good practice .

 2. The electrician also brought out some cables thru the external block.. what tape is best to airtight these?

thanks

I would use fire rated penetration seal. 

 

Google fire sealing penetrations and you will get plenty of examples of products and methods to use.

 

Mortar would work but might be a bit permanent and difficult to break out without damaging services if repairs or upgrades are needed.

 

The stuff we spec is envirograf.

It shouldn’t really mater 

If you are concerned you could up rate the plasterboard To one hour protection What ever you put around the plastic pipes won’t hold a fire back 

It will simply melt the pipes Better stopping any potential fire getting in there

Depending on skill level.

shutter and pour concrete around pipes.

 

remove shutter, bead of fire foam around perimeter ceiling/wall if required.

 

you get rock wool coated with intumescent sealant that lets you seal risers, cut to shape and sealed with intumescent sealer.

lots of options
