The Hilti FS 411 puts firestop system recommendations directly in the installer’s hand by way of a Palm PDA.

Once specialized software that consists of a simple, but smart questionnaire is installed, the FS 411 can quickly determine all acceptable Hilti firestop system options (based on input from a user) and then displays them in order of recommendation from most to the least.

The questionnaire includes information on wall and floor types, thickness, fire rating, type and subtype of penetrant and maximum annular space.

In addition, the selected firestop systems can optionally be saved for later transfer to a desktop PC via HotSync, which allows for easy and detailed project record-keeping.
