BIBBY STE-CROIX RECEIVED T-RATING FOR CAST IRON - IDEAL FOR PARKING GARAGES
ST-CROIX, QUEBEC, CANADA, 4 February 2017 – Bibby-Ste-Croix, the premier Canadian cast iron drain, waste, and vent (DWV) pipe manufacturer, is pleased to announce a new CAN/ULC-S115 2-hour FT Through Penetration Firestop Listing with Intertek.
“This listing, CAN/ULC-S115 2-hour FT rating is a simple cost-effective solution that streamlines the installation process thus saving time for contractors,” said Tom Leonard, President of Bibby-Ste-Croix. “No more having to get up on a ladder or a lift to insulate the pipe under the slab in a parking garage – the insulation can now be done on top of the slab with a lot less labour and material by following the easy steps in the listing.”
With this new listing, there is no need for contractors or engineers to consider toxic plastic piping systems that could be hazardous to human health in a fire situation. Cast iron is a safe non-combustible building product that is durable and will not burn or melt in a fire. In addition, this listing for cast iron reduces the need for complex firestopping systems that are required for a plastic piping which tend to increase the total installed cost of a PVC system.
Bibby-Ste-Croix has two foundry locations in the province of Quebec. Bibby-Ste-Croix employs over 400 team members who are responsible for the production of cast iron soil pipe and fittings used in drain, waste and vent (DWV) plumbing systems. In addition, 80 team members are responsible for manufacturing street castings, manhole frames and covers, and municipal road castings in their St. Ours Laperle Foundry. The company is privately owned and dates back to 1921 – last year Bibby celebrated their 95th Anniversary. Each year Bibby reclaims thousands of tons of post-consumer scrap metal for use in the production of sustainable building products. Bibby products are also 100% recyclable at the end service which further reduces the demand on landfills. For more information visit Bibby-Ste-Croix.com
