Fireproofing Services

Our Fireproofing division is an industry leader in Passive Fire Protection, with over 50 years of combined experience. We employ leading manufacturers and products to provide a solution that meets or exceeds the project requirements.

The purpose for fireproofing is to create a buffer between a fire and the structural steel supporting a building. This is achieved by applying a cementitious or intumescent coating directly to the structural steel substrate. When structural steel is heated beyond 2000 degrees Fahrenheit, it will begin to deform and lose its strength, thus compromising the structural integrity of the building. The delay in structural failure created by the fireproof coatings allows the occupants time to safely evacuate the building in the event of a fire.

Fireproofing FAQ

Find answers to the most common questions we get about our fireproofing services.

What Is Fireproofing?2020-12-25T19:09:50+00:00

Fireproofing is a type of “passive fire protection” which involves making something resistant to fire, incombustible or containing or slowing the spread of fire. By Applying a type of fireproofing system to certain structures, it allows them to have a “fire resistance rating”. A fire resistance rating typically means the duration for which  a passive fire protection can withstand a standard fire resistance test. A few examples of fireproofing material we install are Cementitious, Intumescent and Thermal/Acoustical.

Why Do We Fireproof Structural Steel If It Is Already Non-Combustible?2021-01-08T00:01:54+00:00

When structural steel is heated beyond 2000 degrees Fahrenheit, it will begin to deform and loose its strength. Fireproofing insulates and protects the steel surfaces exposed to fire and slows the heating process to delay structural failure.

What Types Of Fireproofing Are Available?2021-01-08T00:02:41+00:00

The most popular and cost effective is a cementitious based fireproofing product. When aesthetics is a concern (areas exposed to view) intumescent products are the common choice.

How Do Fireproofing Products Work?2021-01-08T00:03:18+00:00

a) Cementitious Fireproofing products use their mass to absorb heat produced by a fire to delay structural failure.
b) Intumescent Fireproofing products expand when heated, forming an insulated char, slowing the heating process of the underlying structural steel.
