New Metacaulk CID Tub Box Kits Provide Firestop Penetration for Drain Pipes
Houston, TX, January 18, 2022 – RectorSeal, Houston, a leading manufacturer of quality HVAC/R and plumbing tools and accessories and a wholly-owned subsidiary of CSW Industrials, Inc. [NASDAQ: CSWI], adds Metacaulk® Cast-In-Place Device (CID) tub box kits to the extensive line of over 1,500 products.
Available with 2- and 3-inch Metacaulk CID, the tub box kits are designed to prevent the spread of fire from bathtubs or jet-spa drains to the upper level. No concrete drilling is required. The maximum slab height with kit components is 10-inches. For deeper slabs, Metacaulk CID extensions are available.
"Our continuing quest is to provide products that help to reduce installation time," said Caitlin Krc, Product Manager at RectorSeal. "It's one reason why our tub box components are designed to be cast directly into the concrete to form an embedded intumescent service supply." UL® classifies Cast-In-Place Tub Box as a firestop device. The Tub Box kits are suitable for both plastic and metal drain pipes.
Standard features of the Metacaulk tub box kits include a crush-resistant, small-footprint design, alignment stubs, height marking identification, and more. The kits can be mounted onto concrete forms using conventional methods outlined in the installation instructions.
