Structural Fire Protection to Steelwork

Structural Steel Protection: Passive Fire Protection

Structural steel protection is crucial for many contemporary buildings.

You may be surprised to learn that steel only offers fifteen minutes of fire resistance therefore it is really important to ensure the steel framework of your building is properly covered within the measures of your passive fire protection system.

Structural steel fire protection can be administered in two ways to protect your building and community:

  • Intumescent paint
  • Fire board protection

Intumescent paint

Intumescent paint or fire retardant paint is a popular option because it is quick and easy to apply. Intumescent paint delivers robust coverage to any shaped steelwork and can be tailored to meet your decorative requirements. However intumescent paint does have a slightly lower maximum fire resistance, offering up to 120 minutes of protection.

Fire board protection

Fire-rated board protection can be administered through light or heavyweight fire-resistant boards. Fire boards are favoured for their uncluttered aesthetic, uniform appearance and easy application. Fire board protection is available in a range of specific thicknesses making it particularly suitable for those who desire a product that will meet accurate measurements.
