of the ProSet System for Architects
Specifying ProSet Systems in new buildings will result in a safer
building for the owner and tenants. ProSet sleeving systems have
built in firestopping and smokeproofing to contain the danger from
fire in a multi-story building.
Penetrations are fire tested and comply with ASTM E-814 and
and Reduction of Risk of Mold
also provide an important new solution to waterproofing and when
designed in conjunction with ProSet Emergency Drain Systems,
which feature the Trap Guard® Drain System,
they can provide containment of water damage
due to a burst pipe, burst hose or the activation of a sprinkler
system. This provides proper tenant separation, reduces headaches
for the building owner and neighboring tenants and reduces the
chances of mold due to water penetration between walls and floors.
Because the use of ProSet Systems increases installation
productivity and reduces construction costs, the Architect and
engineer has the opportunity to increase safety, tenant separation,
work quality and performance at a lower cost than traditional
achieves the seemingly contradictory aims of higher quality, better
performance and lower costs through a thorough understanding of
piping issues and the development of innovative solutions that come
from decades of experience in the industry. This is fueled by a
continuing desire to find a better way.
ProSet Systems can be used with any construction system and with
almost all types and sizes of pipe. ProSet also has a complete line
of fire-rated, government spec drains that are much easier to
install. They fit perfectly into the various depths of concrete
pours without need to jury-rig with wires or spacers.
Quality Piping Infrastructure
At the same time that ProSet Systems are increasing productivity and
lowering costs, they are also enhancing the quality and consistency
of the finished product. ProSet materials are high quality and
fire-rated. There are no annular holes and caulking associated with
traditional methods. Also, there are no traditional riser clamps and
Fixed Point Layout Method that Precisely Matches Design
The ProSet sleeves are installed with a precise layout. In order to
make this easier and even more precise, ProSet has developed a
simple system featuring a small template that is used in conjunction
with a laser to assist with sleeve layouts.
not only pinpoints the location of sleeves faster but it means that
the sleeve positions will match the design layout precisely and will
consistently provide good results.
With Innovative or Difficult Design Issues
the Architect or Engineer is facing an unusual design or
specification problem due, for instance, to an unusual building
design, you can call ProSet and they will provide you with the
benefit of their decades of experience in penetrations and piping
an example, ProSet was asked if they could help with the piping in a
building that had one side that was slanted. This required a stepped
approach to the piping as it ascended which, in turn, required the
installation of multiple tube turn offset joints on each floor.
ProSet was able to come up with precise angle sleeves which allowed
the piping to run straight between floors.
the Problem of Drain Placement
ProSet has developed the Trap Guard® System, which eliminates
the need for trap primers for infrequently used drains. This makes
it much easier to place drains wherever they are needed, without
concern for sewer gas problems or using trap primers. This gives the
Architect and Engineer a lot more flexibility for using drains for
laundry rooms, condensate and other areas where the use of a trap
primer would be too expensive or the piping would be too complex.
ProSet also has a drain, usable with the Trap Guard®, which is
suitable for wood floors. This means that drains can be placed in
laundry rooms, furnace rooms, etc. in multi-story apartment
complexes. This was not an option before.
Design and Specs: The ProSet Systems Design Center
The expanded ProSet Systems product line
provides many options, since it addresses Plumbing, Electrical,
Mechanical and Fire Sprinkler applications and encompasses all major
construction systems and types and sizes of pipe. We've made it easy
and intuitive to get to the solution you need, view the drawings and
Warnock Hersey listings and then download the drawings in CAD
summary, ProSet allows the Architect and Engineer to design and spec
a building that is safer, of higher quality, lower cost, with more
flexible design options and with fewer problems for operators and
