Festive Update

Sandalwood will be closed from 12 pm on 24th December 2020 and re-open on Monday 4th January 2021. Please aim to order before the 11th of December so that we can source un-stocked parts before we close. I cannot guarantee delivery before Christmas day but we will do our best.  

STOP PRESS - EXCITING TIMES AT SANDALWOOD

We have made a successful move to our new home at Turweston Aerodrome!

We will also be increasing our stocks of Robin and Jodel parts and have, as of the 1st December 2020, re-registered for VAT. From this date invoices will show VAT separately. Thus continuing to offer our trade and retail customers a fast and competitive parts supply service. 

As always, thanks for your friendship and your custom over the past 20 years we really appreciate it and look forward sharing with you the exciting times ahead.

You are here: Home > Engine & Firewall Forward > Firewall Materials and Shields

One and two piece shields for use over cables or wires with large end-fittings or existing installations.

Single piece for use where the cable or wire may pass through the hole. Flat shields designed for use on wooden or composite firewalls using a fire resistant sealant to prevent leaks.

Both types of shield available in flat or with dimple to accommodate rubber grommets up to outside diameter. Actual hole size in 2 piece shields is slightly larger than indicated to prevent chafing cable. Ream pilot hole in single piece shields oversize for the size grommet used.

Use grommets that fit tightly around the cable or wire to insure a good seal. Shields may be installed with screws, bolts and plate nuts or rivnuts. Install cable and grommet in firewall. Locate the shield to insure that it is central on the cable - then drill attach holes in firewall.

Shields predrilled with 5/32" mounting holes. If more than one cable passes through grommet fire resistant sealant must be applied to grommet.

CAUTION: Any holes drilled in the firewall are potential source of carbon monoxide in the cockpit. Extreme caution must be exercised when installing firewall shields in your aircraft. They do not provide the necessary seal around cables or wires to prevent carbon monoxide, smoke or fire from entering the cockpit. The shields are designed only to protect the sealing material (grommets/gaskets) from excessive heat.
