of the ProSet System for Building Owners
When buildings use the ProSet Systems
for penetrations, piping and drains, the owner can be assured that
the quality of the piping performed in the building is high.
Specifically, this means that the work is neat and is easy to
inspect. All ProSet Penetrations have been tested in accordance with
ASTM E814 fire test standards.
and Tenant Separation
Key sources of benefits to the owner are the
fireproof, smokeproof and waterproof properties of ProSet
penetrations and products. This enhances the safety and convenience
of tenants on floors other than those on which fires and water
emergencies occur, we refer to this as tenant separation. When combined with the new ProSet concept of Emergency
Drain Systems, using the revolutionary Trap Guard®
this results in very effective tenant separation in the event of
US Patent Number: 6,795,987
Probability of Problems due to Mold
This combination of waterproofing and
drain systems also provides a way to prevent water from penetrating
to locations between floors and walls where it can contribute to the
development of mold.
ProSet Systems also result
in lower building costs. There are increases in productivity due to:
Ease of installation;
No need to install riser clamps and
Use of Fixed Point Pipe Fabrication
Sealing of upper floors by ProSet
waterproof penetrations, thus eliminating the impact of rain on
construction materials and workers on lower floors; and
The ability to work on multiple floors
Also, the installation schedule is more
predictable because of the consistency of the ProSet installation
process. This makes it much easier to develop a realistic
installation schedule and increases the probability that the work
will be completed as scheduled.
Quality Building 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. There are no
annular holes and caulking associated with traditional methods.
There are no riser clamps and pipe hangers. ProSet materials are
high quality and fire-rated and will last the lifetime of the
In summary, the use of ProSet
Systems in your buildings will:
Provide peace of mind;
Reduce potential liability due to the
impact of fires, water emergencies and mold;
Decrease the impact of fire and water
emergencies on you and your tenants; and
Provide a higher-quality building
infrastructure that will require less maintenance.
All of these benefits should add to
the inherent value of the building if and when you decide to sell.
