Hawke HTS joins the team of Modern World Yachting with their Transit Systems! We are very grateful for their trust and we believe that the relationship will be very valuable.
#New Partner Hawke HTS
In this announcement, we would like to introduce Hawke HTS to you. Furthermore, we will give you a brief insight into the products that we will represent with Hawke.
Founded in 1985, Hawke Transit System has a broad experience in product development, system design, manufacturing and more. Hawkes manufacturing meets the highest quality standards to coincide with our demanding industry certification requirements. Most importantly, their products are 100% European manufactured. The products guarantee the integrity of cable and pipe penetrations through firewalls, decks or bulkheads. This results in the system protecting against risks from hazards such as; fire, smoke, water ingress, toxic gases and attack by vermin. Acquired in 2005 by Fernández Jove Group, with headquarters in the North of Spain. As a result, Hawke Transit System has a global reach with offices and distributors all around the world.
Hawke Transit System sealing systems can be used in new installations as well as in old ones.
Modern World Yachting, in cooperation with Hawke HTS, will represent a total of 8 new products divided over 3 subcategories of Transit Systems. The categories are Marine Frames, Reinforced Marine Frames, Round Frames and assembly parts. Aforementioned products can be found by following this link. The subcategories will be clarified in the text below. In this, you will find the specifications of the products and the range of available products. Furthermore, we will enlighten you with a few strong points of these products. Find out more about the Transit Systems of Hawke by sending us an email or calling us. Download the Hawke brochure on this link for more information.
The Hawke transits systems are made to maintain the integrity of a firewall, bulkhead or deck through which cables, pipes or other services pass. The transit systems are available in three different categories, listed below.
Hawke marine transit systems give protection to the cable/pipe entries wherever a wall, deck or bulkhead is penetrated by cable or pipe. The transit system will maintain the integrity of the structure which is exposed to risks from hazards such as; fire, smoke, water ingress and more.
All marine frames are to be sealed with standard or EMC HF blocks, compression systems and accessories. The standard available materials for all marine frames are Mild Steel and Stainless Steel. Furthermore, aluminium and other materials are available under request. Besides this, for all marine frames goes that multiple frames are available as a combination of two or more apertures. They can be arranged horizontally, vertically or both combined.
Rectangular frame for marine applications. Made from 10mm thickness steel. Available in four standard sizes with 120mm width (internal) and in four standard sizes 60mm width (Internal).
Rectangular frame with flange for marine applications. Made from 10mm thickness steel with a 60mm flange. Available in four standard sizes with 120mm width (internal).
Rectangular frame with round corners to reduce the risk of stress fractures within stress applications. Made from 10mm thickness steel. Available in four standard sizes with 120mm width (internal).
Reinforced Marine Frames
Just like the Marine Frames but stronger! All reinforced marine frames below are to be sealed with standard or EMC HF blocks, compression systems and accessories. The standard available materials for all marine frames are Mild Steel and Stainless Steel. Furthermore, aluminium and other materials are available under request. Besides this, for all reinforced marine frames goes that multiple frames are available as a combination of two or more apertures. They can be arranged horizontally, vertically or both combined.
Double frame for applications with increased pressure ratings and fire-proofing. Available in four standard sizes with 120mm width (internal).
Standard HMX frame with end fillet pieces with radius corners added to the top and bottom sides of the frame. Better suited for high stressed area applications. Available in four standard sizes with 120mm width (internal).
Standard HMX frame extended using a 10mm thick welded collar. For use in corrugated bulkhead or to fit the frame above deck level. Available in four standard sizes with 120mm width (internal).
Round Frames – Sleeves
Hawke HTS round transits effectively seal cables and pipes passing through circular apertures. Giving protection against the same hazards as rectangular frames. The seal is formed by tightening the compression bolts which expand the system radially. This causes pressure to be exerted against the external sleeve or aperture. Due to this the interior services, blocks or pipes are closed down. Round transits are installed within Hawke sleeves for a precise fit.
Hawke HRTO is a round sealing solution for multiple cables/pipes passing through a circular aperture in a wall or bulkhead/deck. The seal is formed by tightening the compression bolts which expand the system radially. The HRTO does not need a compression system. Designed to be installed using Hawke Sleeves (welded, bolted or cast) and standard HF blocks. HRTO is always supplied as an open frame. This enables the frame to be installed after cable/pipe installation.
HRTO frames are typically used for multiple cables/pipes. Therefore, Tolerant Blocks and Filler Blocks are needed to seal the frame.
Manufactured in intumescent elastomer polymer with stainless steel front and backplates. Besides stainless steel, the plates also available in mild steel.
Available sealing area is in the range of 15×15 mm up to 120×120 mm.
Hawke HRST is a round sealing solution for a single cable/pipe passing through a wall or bulkhead/deck. Each size of HRST frame can seal a large range of diameters without any onsite modifications. Designed to be installed using Hawke Sleeves (welded, bolted or cast). Also, the HRST is always supplied as an open frame. This enables the frame to be installed after cable/pipe installation. The HRST is available to seal services from 4mm up to 170mm of external diameter with a tolerance up to 7 mm.
HRST frames are used to seal single cables or pipes. As a result, no blocks or stay plates are required.
Manufactured in intumescent elastomer polymer with stainless steel front and backplates. Each HRST frame has a gasket to prevent galvanic corrosion when installed within a mild steel sleeve.
To give you a brief insight into what makes Hawke different from their competitor, the Hawke HF tolerance blocks are described.
Hawke HF tolerant blocks are designed to accommodate cables/pipes passing through the frame. Their special design incorporates five contact points which allow the blocks to accommodate a range of different diameters and accept variances in cable/pipe diameter. Each block has a sealing range of 3-4mm without the need for any onsite modifications. The tolerance blocks are easily installed resulting in zero waste material.
Also, Hawke’s unique inspectable colour code makes installation easier and faster. Furthermore, it allows for a visual inspection of the transit when complete.
No onsite modifications needed
Modification of any product is a process that can lead to human error. When using Hawke products, the installation process is very simple: select a specific Tolerant block and install it immediately onto the respective cable. The speed of installation dramatically reduces labour costs when compared to alternative products. Also, HTS’s colour-coding system removes the doubt by confirming that two correct halves are selected and installed on each cable.
No waste material
Due to our Tolerant Blocks not needing to be modified onsite, there is therefore, no scrap material to dispose of. This means that potential hazards and hidden costs associated with the disposal of waste products are removed.
The individual block halves are colour-coded and they also display the maximum and minimum diameter of cable/pipe which it is designated to seal. The colour coding allows the inspector to identify that the blocks have been correctly sized for the cable or pipe. Without colour-coding, it is extremely difficult to inspect/verify that the system has been installed correctly.
With Hawke Transit System’s unique three-piece Endpacker unit and Hawke HTS’s compression tool, finishing the sealing of a Hawke Transit System is very simple and fast. The compression tool guarantees that there is always space to insert the endpacker. Its special design in three pieces allows it to be inserted without removing the tool. Therefore, without removing the pressure in the system. This feature facilitates the installation and helps to reduce installation time.
Tolerant block size range
Each block is manufactured incorporating five sealing faces and four sealing grooves along the internal faces, which are displaced by the sealing process. Therefore, a tolerance of up to 4mm for cable/pipe diameters in the same block can be achieved. The five sealing faces allow for correct sealing of cables/pipes with an inconsistent outer diameter or shape. Due to this, services do not have to be completely circular to be sealed within our Tolerant Blocks.
Speed of installation
Due to the special design of HTS products, installation and inspection time can be over 50% less than those products that require onsite modification.
