Beele Engineering has developed and manufactured passive fire prevention materials for over 30 years. Their products include sleeves, plugs, wraps and sealing pastes sealants that seal off cable and piping penetrations through bulkheads and decks during a fire.

The intumescent sleeves, plugs and wraps expand to many times their original volume during a fire, thereby preventing the transfer of heat, smoke and oxygen, even if the cable or pipe is burnt away. These sleeves and wraps can also crush and seal plastic pipework. All Beele products are non-toxic and virtually non-combustible; they will remain intact at extreme temperatures . In their neutral state (no fire), bulkhead penetrations are also watertight and smoketight.

Eliminating the air supply that sustains a fire provides a secondary benefit, in that the airtight seal contains heat, smoke and toxic fumes within the area of the conflagration. This provides additional time for crew and passengers in adjacent areas to escape, and/or respond to the fire. Most fire related fatalities are caused by smoke inhalation rendering the victim unconscious before the fire reaches them.

Beele products are engineered to provide versatility and ease of installation. They will seal penetrations that carry a range of different size cables and pipes, and electricians, boat-builders and engineers can install them as they work through their projects. Beele products meet or exceed international fire certification requirements, and have type approvals from all major marine classification societies (Lloyds, BV, GL, ABS, DNV, etc).
