Providing safety and peace of mind in today’s modern construction is priceless.
Sprayed on fireproofing systems play an important role when it comes to providing a cost-effective approach to meet the hourly ratings required by building codes and insurance companies.
Spray-applied fireproofing products are the most common types of fireproofing materials. Spray-applied fireproofing can either be cementitious fireproofing (typically gypsum based, wet mix formulation) or sprayed fiber fireproofing (mineral wool fiber with a Portland cement-based binder, dry mix formulation).
Spray-applied materials come in standard density for concealed applications and medium or high density for exposed applications where the fireproofing is constantly subject to abuse and/or moisture.
Cementitious fireproofing is a flame retardant spray primarily used on hidden structural steel members to facilitate safe egress during a fire. Fireproofing materials come in a variety of density and can be applied in thicknesses to meet a 4 hour fire rating.
Benefits of Cementitious Coatings
Easily applied by spray or trowel
Lightweight – one-third the weight of concrete for equal fire protection
Excellent physical properties – hard & durable
