The original RISE Duct Seal is a multi-cable and pipe transit sealing system for cable ducts and building entries that uses individual sleeves rather than the NOFIRNO multi sleeves supplied with our RISE RAPID system. It provides an effective and simple solution protecting against flood and gas ingress with the very highest levels of long term sealing performance. The system was introduced for the UK utility and construction markets using the proven technologies of Beele Engineering's RISWAT and RISE multi cable transit systems. The most commonly used watertight and gastight version consists of only two components: blue RISWAT rubber insert sleeves, used to guarantee cable separation and as a backing for the sealant layer, and FIWA sealant, a high quality silicone based, fire stopping, water repellent sealant. The system can also be upgraded to provide up to 4 hours of fire protection in accordance with BS EN1366-3 by exchanging the rubber insert sleeves for the fire rated RISE sleeves. Adding, removing or replacing cables or pipes is also an easy process.
The elasticity and high bonding strength of sealant offers a flexible seal which resists movement, shock and vibration, as well as high pressure. The blue RISWAT rubber insert sleeves are applied to guarantee cable separation and as a backing for the application of the sealant. For gastight and watertight applications, the standard 60mm sleeve is sufficient.
Using our fire resistant RISE insert sleeves at a length of 160mm and applying sealant to both faces of the opening, will provide a fire stopping seal. When exposed to heat or flame, the advanced rubbers used within the system will resist heat and flame, assuring total conduit sealing protection against fire, heat, toxic and corrosive gases. The fire rated RISE multi cable transit system has been tested in accordance with BS EN1366-3 and has been proven to maintain integrity for up to 4 hours.
The RISE Duct Seal System can be used in vertical as well as horizontal ducts. The split insert sleeves cling to the cables without sliding down and falling out of the penetration, bundled multi sleeves are available for any openings with lots of free space. The high adhesion and viscosity of the sealant means it will not run or drip when applied overhead. Using the newly developed Aquastop or a drain during installation allows the RISE system to be used in sealing ducts when there is running water.
Installing additional cables is very straightforward. It is a simple matter of coring into the soft rubber layer of the sealant to a depth of 20mm and passing the additional cables through the opening created. The sealant is then applied around the new cable to re-seal. There is no need to disassemble the whole transit.
