3. Firestop System The firestop system shall consist of the following:

A. Firestop Device* Collar Collar to be installed in accordance with the accompanying
installation instructions. Collar to be installed and latched around pipes such that collar
completely overlaps periphery of opening. Collar secured to underside of floor or both
sides of wall with min 3/16 in. diam by min 1-1/4 in. long steel expansion. Min of two, three
or four anchor bolts, symmetrically located, for nom 2 in. diam (or smaller), nom 3 in. diam

B. Packing Material Min 4 in. thickness of min 4 pcf mineral wool batt insulation firmly
packed into opening as a permanent form, flush with bottom surface of floor assembly or
both sides of wall. Packing material to be recessed from top surface of floor or both
surfaces of wall assembly to accommodate the required thickness of fill material.
C. Fill Void or Cavity Material* Sealant Min 1/2 in. thickness of fill material applied within
annulus, flush with top surface of floor or both surfaces of the wall assembly. At point
contact location between penetrant and periphery of opening, an additional 1/2 in. diam
bead of fill material shall be applied at the concrete penetrant interface on top surface of
floor assembly.
