svt: smart solutions for all your needs
Fire protection for ships and offshore facilities
Whether it’s sealing systems, coatings, fabrics or cable bandages: svt Group of Companies helps ships effectively through any waters. Application of our intumescent (foam-forming) fire protection coatings for cables and carrier systems does not in any way affect the cables’ current-carrying capacity. As an extra option, we offer a protective varnish for use in areas that are subject to increased stress, e. g. chemical exposure.
We also supply a variety of highly resistant cold-curing sealing compounds based on polyurethane or epoxide resin. By the way, svt products and systems provide protection not only from fire, but also from electromagnetic pulses so that they comply with all EMC-related requirements. Our portfolio is rounded out by reliable installation and calculation tools.
GEAQUELLO® E 950 and CPS: one design principle for all your needs
The classic solution – GEAQUELLO® E 950 sealing system

Area of use:
- Above and below the water line
- Pipe and cable penetration sealing system certified to fire resistance class A-60 in accordance with IMO Resolution MSC 307(88)for bulkhead and floor penetrations.
- GEAQUELLO® E 950 (pastel pink)
The new-entrant solution – GEAQUELLO® CPS sealing system
- Easy installation and retrofit
- 130 mm
Area of use:
- Above the water line
- Cable penetration sealing system certified to fire resistance class A-60 in accordance with IMO Resolution MSC 307(88) for bulkhead and floor penetrations.
- GEAQUELLO® E 1000 (blue)
All it takes to ensure fast, easy and safe installation of either of the two systems GEAQUELLO® E 950 and CPS is formwork and sealing compound. And there is even more good news: Both systems excel across the board because the size and geometry of the penetrants (round, oval, rectangular/square) is completely irrelevant. Also, the systems are approved for almost any cable and pipe material. Unlike systems from other manufacturers, GEAQUELLO® E 950 and CPS demonstrably do not require penetrants to be routed in an orthogonal manner, which further facilitates and speeds up application. GEAQUELLO® E 950 and CPS are both certified to SOLAS standards up to fire resistance class A-60. The systems offer enormous benefits in logistical terms, too: The calculation and purchasing process could not be easier, and the low storage space requirement adds another positive aspect.
Effectiveness and efficiency times two!
The combined use of GEAQUELLO® E 950 and CPS excels across the board as it creates a power pack with a wealth of benefits in its wake:
Identical handling and use
No smoke development
Low transport costs
No hazardous materials
No asbestos involved
Retrofit modules GEAQUELLO® E 234 - the upgrade solution
Start building a safe future today – with GEAQUELLO® E 234! These robust, moisture and humidity-resistant retrofit modules ensure hassle-free retrofitting of cables and pipes of any type. The modules serve as placeholders in penetrations protected with GEAQUELLO® E 950 or CPS sealing systems, and they form a stable insulation layer in the event of a fire. Thanks to the special sealing design, cable and pipe sheaths will not be strained in the retrofitting process.
Add to these benefits that the material of which the retrofit modules are made is not only easy but also fast to perforate – in fact, 5 to 10 times faster than the sealing compound proper. Once the retrofitting is done, our system component GEAQUELLO® E 234 T will ensure smooth process completion: Thanks to the handy cartridges, the remaining annular gap can be filled in a matter of only a few seconds.
Talk to the experts for customised solutions
We are consistently striving to drive the development of customised fire protection solutions for industrial environments. Ships, for example, pose a variety of safety challenges because combustible surfaces (such as drive shafts) require special protection. We also deliver tried and tested fire protection doors, windows and glazings developed from our long-standing know-how and experience. Breaking waves, salt water, different weather conditions accompanied by temperature variations as well as UV radiation and chemicals exert continuous stress on ships and offshore facilities. We understand what you need, and we can help you with our decades-long experience in the field of fire protection on board – just contact us to set your course to safety!
