What is fireproofing?
Most multi-family or commercial structures need fireproofing. Protection is needed for even buildings made entirely of concrete and steel. Passive Fire Protection (PFP), also known as Fireproofing, is used to prevent or delay the collapse of steel and concrete buildings exposed to fire and heat. In the event of a fire, passive fire protection materials insulate structural components from reaching high temperatures that can cause structural failure.
Spraying fireproofing on a steel structure, such as columns, beams, metal decking, and steel joints, is typically done to protect them from the effects of intense heat during a large fire.
The most common materials utilized in fireproofing services are cementitious products, which may be coated with a variety of fireproofing technologies. The structural foundation of a building can be protected using mill-mixed plaster, which is a single component spray that is applied and mixed before being sprayed on the steel structure. Because to their characteristics, intumescent coatings are not as thick as cementitious ones. They expand when heated, which delays the steel structure’s heating and provides for enough response time. It is used as a paint with another appeal of being utilized to create attractive designs.

It’s critical to fireproof your home or business, no matter what kind of protection you choose. A fire can wreak havoc on your house or company, not to mention cost you tens of thousands of dollars in repairs and replacement property. Fortunately, there is a new choice for fire resistant paint that may stop a deadly blaze from progressing.
Intumescent Fireproofing Paint and Intumescent Fireproofing Coating are two types of fire-resistant coatings that may be used to increase the protection of your structure against fire. This inventive technology is designed to meet or exceed most fire safety industry regulations, allowing organizations, homeowners, and even historical structures to protect their property from fires. To adhere to tough fire code standards and rules, in some locations adding fireproof paint to your walls is enough, making this an excellent source for historic properties that must comply with local codes while also preserving the property’s historic integrity. Intumescent Fireproofing Paint is simple to use on studs, walls, doors, window ledges, and stair treads. It may be rolled, sprayed or brushed on like any other paint product before being painted over in the area you wish to protect.
What does fireproofing do to the building?
- It keeps the structural steel below the critical temperature.
- If the structural steel is left without fireproofing, it can damage fire barriers and a building can collapse so it avoids total structural damage.
- It keeps electrical circuits below the critical point and makes them stay operational.
- It prevents you as the owner from huge financial losses and helps you with the insurance rates.
