Firesleeve

High Temperature, Heat, Flame, Fire Resistant Silicone Rubber Coated Fiberglass Sleeve & Jacket for Wire, Cable, Hose and Tube Protection


500°F / 260°C Continuous Exposure / 1000°F / 537°C Peak Exposure
FlameShield Firesleeve (sometimes spelled fire sleeve or fire-sleeve) is the perfect sleeve and jacket choice for protecting industrial hydraulic hoses and lines, pneumatic lines, fuel & oil lines, brake lines, wires and cables from exposure to high temperature, heat, flame, fire and pyro exposure.  The extra thick special formulation of silicone rubber on our firesleeve sheds molten metals, slag, welding splatter, electrical or grinding sparks and contamination.  

Industrial Grade Firesleeve - Knit & Heavy Duty Braid


500°F / 260°C Continuous Exposure / 1000°F / 537°C Peak Exposure

FlameShield industrial grade Firesleeve is fabricated from a knitted fiberglass yarn substrate, while the heavy duty industrial grade Firesleeve is fabricated from a thicker and denser braided fiberglass yarn.

Available in sizes ranging from 0.25" Inside Diameter through 5" I.D. in 27 size steps.

Firesleeve - Aviation Aerospace Grade meeting SAE AS1072E


Allows qualified hose assemblies to pass AS1055D

500°F / 260°C Continuous Exposure / 1000°F / 537°C Peak Exposure

FlameShield aviation / aerospace grade high temperature, heat, flame and pyro resistant firesleeve jacket  is manufactured to SAE AS1072E standards so it can pass the fire testing standards of AS1055D; and the requirements of FAA TSO - C53a and TSO - C75.

It may be used for all fuel, oil, hydraulic, fire extinguisher and prop feathering lines. "Fire-proof" hose lines, as defined by the FAA, must withstand a direct flame for fifteen minutes under specified flow conditions without failure. Fire-resistant lines must withstand a 5 minute exposure under these conditions.

Firesleeve with VELCRO® Brand Hook & Loop Closure


500°F / 260°C Continuous Exposure / 1000°F / 537°C Peak Exposure

Available in two styles: HiFlex and LoFlex.  HiFlex is manufactured from braided Heavy Duty Firesleeve, and LoFlex is manufactured from woven base 98oz/sq-ft fabric.

The HiFlex silicone coating and underlying braid fiberglass is flexible, allowing for easy placement on curved lines and for installations requiring high flexibility and motion.  The LoFlex is a stiffer material, providing slightly more protection than the HiFlex product due to the silicone having a high durometer.

Firesleeve with Metal Snap Closure


500°F / 260°C Continuous Exposure / 1000°F / 537°C Peak Exposure

SnapSleeve firesleeve povides a field installable protection sleeve utilizing metal snaps instead of hook and loop closure strips.

Snaps are typically installed at 4 or 6 inch spacing along the sleeve.  Additional snaps may easily be field installed to allow for unique bends or extra closure protection.

Available in sizes from 1" through 12" ID.  Other larger sizes available.

Firesleeve with Zipper Closure


500°F / 260°C Continuous Exposure / 1000°F / 537°C Peak Exposure

ZipSleeve firesleeve provides a field installable protection sleeve utilizing a nomex zipper with brass teeth instead of Velcro closure strips.

Available in standard sizes from 1" through 12" ID; custom sizes are available.

The standard maximum length of a zipper firesleeve is 50 feet / 15 metres.  Longer zippers up to 150 feet / 45 metres are possible, but will incur minimum order quantities.

Small Diameter Firesleeve for AWG sized Wire Protection


High Temperature, Heat & Flame Resistant Protection for Wire, Cables, Hoses and Tubing

464°F / 240°C Continuous Exposure:  Higher Intermittent

FlameShield thin-wall high temperature, heat, flame and fire resistant firesleeve is the perfect choice for protecting small diameter wires and cables from exposure to high temperature and environmental conditions.  The thin-wall fiberglass substrate and smooth silicone rubber on this firesleeve sheds light molten metal splash, slag, welding splatter, electrical or grinding sparks, solder drips and contamination.  Also provides protection from ozone, UV and light abrasion. This product is UL/CSA approved and used on a wide variety of equipment such as fixtures, appliances and motors for wiring protection.

This sleeve is available only in oxide-red and black.  Supplied in spool lengths; some sizes may be available in by-the-foot lengths - please contact our order desk to enquire.

Firesleeve Accessories: End Cut Liquid Dip & Paste Sealant, Clamps & Tools,
End Wrap Tape


Protecting and sealing the cut ends of firesleeve from wicking liquids and contaminants

SleeveSeal

SleeveSeal high temperature sealant paste is our special formulation of high-temperature silicone rubber, packaged into a convenient 3oz squeeze tube or 10.3oz caulking tube, for use on mechanical joints, and as a potting compound, anywhere a high-temperature adhesive/sealant is required.  2 grades: +260°C and +300°C continuous.

Seal-Dip is a special formulation of our high-temperature silicone rubber which is a liquid until exposed to air, when it cures rapidly into a flexible protective covering of silicone rubber.  Perfect for protecting the ends of sleeve and tape from fraying, or from contamination, and from wicking liquids such as water, oil, hydraulic fluid, etc. Usually used as a dip for sleeve and rope.   Non corrosive and meets Mil-A-46146 as per NAVAIR 01-1A-20.

SleeveSeal End Wrap Tape

This high temperature, heat and flame resistant silicone rubber end wrap tape is the perfect choice for sealing the ends of firesleeve, thereby preventing the firesleeve from wicking liquids such as water, oil or hydraulic fluid.  This silicone tape can also be used to help secure other types of fiberglass and silica tapes over wires, cables, hoses, tube and pipe..

The tape has a blue stripe running down the centre as an aid to performing a standard 50% overlap when wrapping the tape around Sleeve, hoses and cables.

End-wrap silicone rubber tape is self bonding to itself and other silicone rubber sleeve and tape, providing a waterproof/air tight end to the installation of firesleeve sleeve over hoses and cables.

This tape is available in 1" and 1 1/2" widths (25 & 37mm), with 36 feet of tape per roll. The tape is mounted on a backing film for easy unwinding.

Also available meeting specification A-A-59163 and Mil-I-46852.
