The high temperatures of a fire can cause even the strongest building materials to fail. At 1,000 degrees, steel framing loses about half its strength.
Commercial spray-applied fireproofing is called SFRM (sprayed fire-resistive material). It’s considered a passive fire protection product application because it can delay or even prevent fire damage to concrete and steel materials. Alternatively, active fire protection relies on an action — like sprinklers or fire extinguishers — to control a fire event. The fireproofing forms protective insulation that can keep structural materials cooler.
Alpha Insulation and Waterproofing commercial spray fireproofing is used to protect:
… and other rigid commercial construction sections.
Spray-applied fireproofing can be a wet mix (usually gypsum-based) or a dry mix (mineral-wool fiber with a cement-based binder). Spray-applied materials come in standard, medium, or high density, depending on your project requirements and the level of exposure the fireproofing may see.
With exposed steel beams becoming more of an architectural fashion statement, our Alpha Insulation & Waterproofing professionals also use intumescent coatings more frequently. These thin-film coatings are designed for exposed applications where appearance is important. They come in solvent- and water-based formulations and can be top-coated with a tint to match almost any color.
