The BOSS Fire® Transit Box is tested and approved for up to 120 minutes on a larger variety of services than ever before.
Whilst still offering a huge range of mixed services used in high rise apartment and hotel construction for SOU entries, the BOSS Fire® Transit Box is now also suitable for floors and ceilings.
Designed to allow multiple services to all pass through one single fire rated enclosure, the BOSS Fire® Transit Box is the only tested and proven method of fire stopping your services with such simplicity of installation and ease of compliance. Typical projects include apartments, hotels & student accommodation for SOU entries. The BOSS Fire Transit Box can also be used in commercial buildings such as data centres, hospitals and aged care facilities.
The BOSS Fire® Transit Box allows you to group various electrical, plumbing, HVAC+R services all through one easy to use and easily certified box. Because services trades don’t need to treat their services individually, risk is removed from using incorrect products or not having them installed correctly.
The BOSS Fire® Transit Box is easily fixed to the underside of concrete soffit before walls are built, or be installed into the wall during construction in a mid wall mount scenario. A range of fixing methods are available including retrofit options using equal angles. Recent additions to the range include retrofit options to concrete floor slabs and also ceiling approvals.
Once the box is installed, services simply “pass through” the box. There is no need to core individual penetrations for each service, or cutting any inserts, nor do you need to seal or treat every individual service. The unique BrushSeal™ allows services to be passed through the box at any time of construction, or even later after a project has been completed making it easier than ever for maintenance contractors and building managers to maintain fire compliance once the building is occupied.
The BOSS Fire® Transit Box contains an advanced high pressure intumescent internally that upon getting exposed to high temperatures, expands to create a superior performing fire seal. Coupled with the unique BOSS Fire® BrushSeal™ that is designed to make the installation and compliance simple, ultimately leading to an industry-leading level of protection.

BOSS Retrofit Fire Collars prevent the spread of fire where PVC and PE plumbing pipes penetrate concrete fire walls and floors. Also for use on PP-R pipes, and polybutylene pipes.
Boss Fire Collars are suitable for on walls and floors. With the addition of the optional ‘click on’ flange oversize holes may be accommodated.
Unlike intumescent assisted mechanical damper type fire collars, Boss Fire Collars contain no fusible links or moving parts to require servicing. As the fire stopping intumescent material in our product is around the outside of the uninterrupted pipe it does not affect the performance of the pipe.
FireMastic-300 intumescent Fire-Rated Acrylic Sealant is a one part acrylic emulsion that is designed to resist the passage of fire, smoke and sound. FireMastic-300 will intumesce and form a char when exposed to the heat of a fire, which will prevent the passage of fire and smoke for up to 5 hours in both integrity and insulation. In normal use it will also maintain the sound reduction index of a structure.
FireMastic-300’s superior acoustic properties means it offers up to a 63dB sound reduction, making it ideal for high performance STC installation.
FireMastic-HPE is a graphite-based, thixotropic, one-part acrylic emulsion that is designed to resist the passage of fire and smoke. Under heat, FireMastic-HPE will expand with enough pressure to close PVC pipes and seal around cables and metal pipes to maintain the integrity and insulation performance of the seal, yet without placing any unnecessary pressure on the building substrate.
FireMastic-HPE is supplied in cartridges suitable for caulking via an applicator gun or also available in buckets. It has excellent non-slump properties coupled with the ease of application due to its water-based nature.
The sealant is intended for use in either linear gap seals or services penetrations through walls where fire integrity and insulation needs to be preserved. Under fire conditions the product expands up to 40 times its volume and exerts pressure to the surrounding substrates leading to closure of the penetration. The integrity and insulation is then maintained by the stability of the remaining product char.
BOSS Fire & Safety’s range of FirePillow-240 covers all applications. Fire Pillows are the most common – treated fabric bags containing fire retardant granulated rockwool, securing penetrations in fire rated construction against the passage of smoke and the spread of fire. They are best suited to environments where pipes, telecommunications cables, cable trays and service shafts penetrate a fire-rated wall or floor.
BOSS also supply High Performance FirePillows and Intumescent FirePillows for environments where water, oil, chemicals and greater protection are required.
BOSS Cable Transits CT120 & CT240 are designed to prevent the spread of fire and smoke from one compartment to another where electrical power, data and comms cables penetrate through separating walls and floors.
The Cable Transit CT120 & CT240 mounting flange provides a quick and easy method of installing single or multiple Cable Transits, even in plasterboard partitions. The unique design means BOSS Cable Transits do not need mechanical fixings and clamp to the wall using metal flanges. By using larger flanges, multiple Cable transits can be banked together alongside each other, providing fire rated penetrations for multiple cables bundles, and with added changeability for future additions or alterations. The unit has a hinged split body which provides an easy retro-fit option where cables are pre-installed.
Tested and approved to AS1530.4 and AS4072.1.
Why Use BOSS Cable Transits?
Suitable for any building where electrical, data or communication cables penetrate a fire rated wall or floor.
BOSS Cable Transits CT120 & CT240 are approved in a wide variety of substrates. These include:
For detailed performance specifications please download the technical data sheet.
PYROGARD Expanding Fire Foam is fire-rated for up to 4 hours and approved to AS1530.4(2005). Its high performance design means it is ideal for sealing irregular shaped gaps, voids and linear joints, such as gaps around door frames, between slab joints or between different wall materials.
