The multi-purpose box comprises a box section housing intumescent materials, with a detachable top section, which can be removed, allowing the unit to be used in tight corners or over existing services. The fixing brackets are adjustable by bending them flat for fitting into corners, or when the box is flush against the floor or ceiling. A fire-resistant sponge smoke seal is supplied with each unit. Can be easily cut with a knife, allowing services to pass through. The sponge is used where service holes are not filled. The multi-purpose box is the most versatile of its kind available and has been specifically designed for most installation requirements where services pass through fire barrier walls, ceilings or floors.

- Detachable face plate allows for the box to be fitted in tight corners
- Adjustable brackets can be bent flat to fit flush against flat surfaces such as walls or ceilings, or kept at a right-angled position to fit in corners
