RISE RAPID Duct Seal Installation Steps

CSD Sealing Systems products are designed to be fast and simple to install, making it easier to achieve an effective gas tight and water tight seal. See below for installation instructions for RISE RAPID Duct Sealing system or to view a printable version click here.
You can also watch online our RISE RAPID installation video.

We have a range of standard duct kits available to suit the most popular sized ducts as well as the full range of installation tools needed to ensure simple installation of our RISE RAPID Duct Seal system. The standard kits and tools can be viewed on our duct kits and tools page.

We can provide installation advice, support and training to help ensure that you are fully equipped for the task. 


RISE RAPID Duct Seal

Installation for watertight and gastight cable duct or building entry applications. These instructions can be downloaded for printing by clicking here.

 

(These instructions are for guidance only and will be suitable for most normal applications, it is the installers responsibility to ensure that the ducts, service and environment faced is suitable and that the method can be executed correctly.)

STEP 1

STEP 1

Ensure the duct opening is clear, removing any debris which may interfere with the installation of the RISE RAPID Duct Seal. Carefully cuting off any cable ties will help separate the cables. The duct should also be dry.

STEP 2

STEP 2

Using an approved degreasing cleaner, thoroughly clean the inside 20mm edge of the transit. All dirt, dust, rust or oil residues must be removed to ensure a good bond of the NOFIRNO sealant to the ducting.

STEP 3

STEP 3

To ensure cable separation for installations with smaller cables, use the sleeve cutting tool to slit a quantity of the NOFIRNO sleeves. This should be about equal to the quantity of cables in the duct.

STEP 4

STEP 4

Place a split sleeve around each of the cables in the duct and then push the multi sleeves into the duct. For larger or single cables, this is not necassary. Simply ensure the multi sleeves provide separation between cables and between the duct and cables.

STEP 5

STEP 5

Fill the remaining free space with spare NOFIRNO multi sleeves.

STEP 6

STEP 6

Any smaller gaps should be filled with smaller sized 18/12 NOFIRNO multi sleeves. Multi sleeves can be easily separated in to smaller quantities. It is important to ensure multi sleeves are tightly packed into the transit to create a solid base for the application of the sealant.

STEP 7

STEP 7

Push all of the multi sleeves into the duct.

STEP 8

STEP 8

Push sleeves into the duct to depth of 20mm, allowing for the application of the NOFIRNO sealant layer.

STEP 9

STEP 9

Adjustments can be made to the multi sleeves using a pair of long nosed pliers. Allowing the correct 20mm depth will ensure a suitable layer of sealant is applied and a good seal is maintained.

STEP 10

STEP 10

Attach the nozzle to the NOFIRNO sealant cartridge and snip the nozzle at an angle, this will help installation. For awkward applications longer nozzles and angled applicators are available. To ensure a good bond is made, before adding the NOFIRNO sealant, clean the duct and cables again using the approved degreaser.

STEP 11

STEP 11

Using a specialist high ratio caulking gun, apply the NOFIRNO sealant to the least accessible areas, (usually around cables). Apply sealant over sleeves, allowing to fill out to the required 20mm depth; a slight overfill is needed. Use a torch to check for gaps in sealant & apply more sealant if required.

STEP 12

STEP 12

When working with the NOFIRNO sealant we recommend the use of disposable nitrile gloves. Using the water spray dampen the cellulose sponge. This is done to stop the sealant from sticking to the sponge whilst working with it.

STEP 13

STEP 13

Using a dabbing motion, firmly pat down the NOFIRNO sealant, ensuring the sealant makes good contact with both cable and the duct wall. For installations in vertical ducts the sealant should stand just proud of the duct; allowing any water to run off the surface without pooling.

STEP 14

STEP 14

Use the water spray to wet your gloves, this will ensure the sealant does not stick to the gloves.

STEP 15

STEP 15

The surface of the NOFIRNO sealant should then be finished off by hand. Ensure a good smooth finish is obtained by the use of a fast skimming motion. Make sure there is a good seal around all of the cables, paying particular attention between the cables.

STEP 16

STEP 16

Take a final check with a torch to ensure sufficient sealant has been applied and the transit is properly sealed. If there are any areas that do not seem sufficiently sealed add more NOFIRNO sealant in this area and smooth off as before. Clean any excess sealant from the edge of the duct and cables.

STEP 17

STEP 17

The completed RISE RAPID Duct Seal will provide a 4 bar (58 psi) water tight and 1.0 bar (15 psi) gas tight rated seal. The RISE NOFIRNO system is proven to provide maintenance free protection for a period in excess of 50 years.

RISE RAPID Duct Seal - adding a cable

Installation instructions to add extra cables. (These instructions are for guidance only.)

STEP 1

STEP 1

Adding new cables is a simple process. Cut away the sealant layer using a plastic knife or hollow punch. Take care not to damage existing cables. A hole slightly larger than the new cable should be made.

STEP 2

STEP 2

Pull the new cable through one of the empty filler sleeves. Use an approved degreaser to ensure the cable sheath is clean and free from dirt, dust or oil to ensure the sealant will bond to the cable.

STEP 3

STEP 3

Refill the opening cut in the sealant layer with sufficient sealant. A slight overfill is required.

STEP 4

STEP 4

Finish the sealant layer in the usual way. Using a damp cloth pat down the NOFIRNO sealant, ensure the sealant makes good contact with the cable and the existing sealant layer. Finally, smooth the surface by hand.
