Intumescent Coatings

Structural fire protection is paramount to the fire safety of a building, both in terms of saving lives and protecting the building. It ensures the building will not collapse for a period of time in the event of a fire, giving occupants’ time to evacuate and the fire brigade time to extinguish. Ultimately, it also reduces the rebuilding costs of a fire-damaged building.

Intumescent paints are either water or solvent based, and can provide up to 2 hours of fire protection. They can be applied by either a spray or roller applied. 
In addition to the intumescent coating there are a wide range of topcoat colours available.

Solvent coatings dry quickly to a smooth, hard finish and this compared to water  solutions can reduce application times by up to a half, thereby cutting installation costs. This also allows for speedier access for following trades. 

Whilst many solvent based intumescent paints are suitable for external and semi-exposed steelwork application they can also be used indoors. Paints with a thin film help to provide a quality finish whist also reducing drying times however it is important to get a competent installer to ensure that the paint is applied in line with the manufacturer’s recommendations.

During a fire intumescent paints change their format from being a paint that was applied to the steelwork, into an intumescent layer of carbonaceous char, which forms when the coating is subjected to heat.

Fire Stopping

Fire stopping prevents the spread of fire and smoke through fire-rated compartment walls and floors. The fire stopping allows occupants to evacuate the building safely and slows down the spread of fire through the building for up to 4 hours. Firesafe has a full range of products which seal around the ducts, pipes, cable trays and movement joints to ensure the integrity of all compartments.

Fire Boarding

We offer a full range of board systems to achieve up to four hours fire rating to structural steelwork. Our range extends from very inexpensive mineral fibre-boards, suitable for non-decorative areas up to highly decorative boards and casing systems.

Soffit Insulation

Commercial and residential properties constructed above car parks can suffer from cold bridging through the separating concrete floor. Firesafe can assist you with delivering the necessary U-value of your project by calculating the required thickness delivering a solution, which meets both performance criteria and aesthetic requirements within budget. Depending on the circumstances, thermal insulation is applied in a rigid board system (mineral fibre or phenolic) or mineral fibre based sprays.

Industrial Coatings

Firesafe offer sprayed decorative industrial coating to steel framed buildings ie retail units, sports centres and Supermarkets. We apply a one coat system that eliminates the need for undercoats and speeds up the application time immensely. Along with the steelwork we can also coat the blockwork, again this is quicker and cleaner than the old fashioned roller method.
