Fire Protection

We’re experts in the application of intumescent application

Intumescent Application Services

Our industrial coating applicators are experienced in the application of intumescent spray applied coatings and cementitious based systems.

These passive fireproofing systems are designed to protect steel work and timber surfaces and contain fire. They are also intended to allow greater opportunities for occupants to safely exit a building and enable emergency fire crews to access & more readily fight a fire.

Our Trade Certifications set us apart

Our Telarc certification to the AS/NZS ISO 45001:2018 Occupational Health and Safety Standard, coupled with our team of BCITO trade-certified professionals, ensures the utmost quality assurance and expertise for our customers.

Intumescent Application

Intumescent coatings are increasingly utilized to offer passive fire protection for load-bearing structures, notably structural steel, which is becoming more and more popular in modern architectural design of both industrial and commercial buildings. 

As a means of fire protection, it presents several advantages:

  • Works as an insulator
  • Enhances the appearance of steel work
  • Various types of intumescent paint can be applied to a range of materials, including steel, timber, composite elements and concrete
  • Doesn’t alter the intrinsic properties of these materials, such as their mechanical characteristics
  • Easily processed

Regular site inspections, primer checks and a hand-over process are carried out during the scheduled works.

The specified system is applied under strict QA procedures in order to achieve the required Dry Film Thickness (DFT).
