    Yes that's it.

    This is the best way to do it. No muss, no fuss, and you just pack it all with fire sealant after the sleeves are set.

    What would be the best way/procedure to set these sleeves in poured concrete slab? They are going in a telecom closet? Thank you!

    The space between them needs to be at least 3x the size of the largest aggregate. Did the architects allow for that?

    Drill the decking and support them with strut laid flat on it.
