About This Product
The EZ Path Series 44+ Fire Rated Pathway is a pathway device designed to allow cables to penetrate fire-rated walls and floors without the need for firestopping. This device features a built-in fire and smoke sealing system that automatically adjusts to the amount of cables installed. Once installed in a fire barrier, cables can be easily added or removed at any time without the need to remove or reinstall firestopping materials.
The EZ Path Series 44+ Fire Rated Pathway consists of an enclosed heavy gauge galvanized steel pathway lined with intumescent material engineered for rapid expansion when exposed to fire or high temperatures, quickly sealing the pathway and preventing the passage of flames and smoke. EZ Path Series 44+ Fire Rated Pathway is painted safety orange for easy identification. Its compact square profile allows a maximum number of cables to be installed in a relatively small area. The pathway measures approximately 4 in (101.6 mm) x 4-5/8 in (118 mm) and is 14 in (356 mm) long and can be increased by 6” (152 mm) for every Series 44+ Extension module (EZD44ES) installed.

EZ Path Series 44+ Fire Rated Pathway is designed for easy installation in floors and walls. Tested and approved cable capacities range from 0 to 100% visual fill. EZ Path Series 44+ Fire Rated Pathway when installed with available single wall plates is designed for new cable installations. In these installations, the device does not require mechanical attachment to either the wall or the wall framing and must be installed after the wallboard has been installed. Split floor plates and multi-gang wall and floor brackets permit installation around previously installed cables if so desired. These installations require mechanical attachment to the barrier. A list of available accessories along with their intended use is shown on page 2 under available components.
EZ Path Series 44+ Fire Rated Pathway Fire Rated Pathway provides exceptional cable capacity. A single unit installed in a wall exceeds the cable carrying capacity of a 6 in (152 mm) sleeve utilizing typical putty firestop systems (35% cable loading). Multiple ganged pathways utilizing available wall bracket kits provide additional capacity or segregation of cables by use, type, installer or vendor as desired.
All data, video, and communications cable bundles shall utilize an enclosed fire rated pathway device wherever said cables penetrate rated walls and floors. The firerated pathway shall contain a built-in fire sealing system sufficient to maintain the hourly fire rating of the barrier being penetrated. The self-contained sealing system shall automatically adjust to the installed cable loading and shall permit cables to be installed, removed, or retrofitted without the need to remove or reinstall firestop materials. The pathway shall be UL Certified and/or FM Systems Approved and tested to the requirements of ASTM E814 (UL1479) and CAN/ULC-S115.
