Default Deck sleeves

I'm bidding a job which will require a boat load of sleeves in a concrete deck.
I've used a variety of off the shelf sleeves in the past and even fabricated them, but am not enamored with any of the things I've used. Would anyone like to chime in on a product they fancy?

We just installed a several thousand of these. https://www.holdrite.com/telescoping-firestop-sleeves/ Way better than Hilti. We had 10 to 36” slabs and beams so the extensions worked great.

Did you use Trimble or some other technique to set them?

We use these for inserts. https://www.hilti.com/c/CLS_FASTENER...WOOD_FORM_7135
I wouldn’t waste the money on the setting tool. A hammer and a piece of rebar work fine for hard to reach places.

This job was 100% trimble from underground to roof drains. Those black plastic aerators you see at the bottom of each sleeve are for extra space in the slab. We had really tight ceilings and needed that space for hubs to fit in. If the smoke screen gets damaged or ripped out, you just pack rock wool in and done. No extra fire caulking.

We use 3M and Holdrite. We try to stay from Hilti ($$$). Trimble is key. 3m also makes a pretty cool tub box. Also, they cut down on the fire proofing sub costs/ labor costs if you do it your self - we sub it out.

Hilti makes fire sleeves that would be a Benefit in this application.

I included fire sleeves in my bid. I also added for hiring a sub who specializes in
detailing this type of work. That and Trimble, though not foolproof (what is?) ought to bolster my chances of a relatively error free layout.
BTW: Apparently, I got the job (though I haven't seem a contract). Not sure when they break ground, but am looking forward to doing something a little different than our usual.
