The BOSS FyreBox is revolutionising firestopping methods for large bundles of mixed services. Designed to allow large bundles of pipes and cables to all pass through one single fire rated enclosure, the  Fire Transit Box is the only tested and proven method of firestopping multiple services with such simplicity of installation and ease of compliance. Commonly used for apartment entry configurations above an entry door to an SOU, the Fire Box is also suited for service risers, shafts, plant areas and data rooms in a variety of residential, commercial and industrial buildings.

The new generation of BOSS FyreBox is now tested and approved to AS1530.4: 2014 and AS4072.1-2005 for 30, 60, 90 and 120 minute configurations on a larger variety of services than ever before. New approvals relate to a wider variety of wall, concrete slab &  floor / ceiling systems.

The BOSS FyreBox 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.

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 Brush Seal 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.

HOW DOES IT WORK IN FIRE?

The BOSS FyreBox 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 Brush Seal that is designed to make the installation and compliance simple, ultimately leading to an industry-leading level of protection.
