Commercial Spray Fireproofing

When considering commercial spray fireproofing, it’s worth understanding the most common forms of spray fireproofing used for commercial structures. As a group, spray fireproofing has become the most common type of fireproofing material. It is easier to use and less expensive than many competing solutions, but spray fireproofing actually encompasses several different material categories. The most common spray fireproofing solutions are:

  • Cementitious fireproofing. The most common form of cementitious fireproofing is a gypsum-based wet mix formulation.
  • Sprayed fiber fireproofing. The most common form of mineral wool fiber-based spray insulation is a dry mix formulation with a portland concrete–based binder.
  • Intumescent coatings. These thin-film coatings are used in applications where structural steel must be fireproofed, but its appearance has a high priority. Intumescent fireproofing comes in water- and solvent-based formulations and can achieve three-hour burn ratings on columns and beams.

When discussing spray fireproofing, you may also see discussion of density, as in standard-, medium- and high-density spray fireproofing. This can apply to various forms of spray fireproofing, with standard-density applications being popular for concealed applications. In contrast, medium- or high-density applications are used for scenarios where the coating will be exposed to the elements and prone to wear and tear.
