STI is pleased to announce that an Evaluation Service Report (ESR) was recently issued by UL for our EZ-Path® Fire-Rated Pathways confirming code compliance with the International Building Code® (IBC), International Fire Code® (IFC), and NFPA 101, “Life Safety Code®” (LSC). The report goes on to confirm that, when properly installed, the device does not require regular maintenance… here is a copy of that report R14579-20160520-Report-Evaluation.
EZ-Path® Rated Pathways are exempt from ongoing maintenance requirements. Because EZ-Path® has no moving parts and requires no action to activate the internal sealing mechanism, it is compliant right out of the box. By contrast, competing devices and traditional sleeves do require ongoing maintenance.
Other than on price, our competitor has been unable to compete against EZ-Path with any meaningful features or benefits, so they have created a smokescreen (pun intended) of propaganda to discredit EZ-Path on YouTube, in jobsite trailers and everywhere they can.
We have taken this threat very seriously and will strike back at their greatest weakness; unlike EZ-Path, the competitor’s Sleeve is NOT “Maintenance Free.” No other pathway is.
