Steel structures are fire-resistant and durable but can collapse after several hours of exposure to extreme heat without fireproofing protection.
Alpha Insulation & Waterproofing provides spray-fireproofing services as a passive fire protection system that gives first responders more time to evacuate personnel from commercial facilities and prevents building collapse in the event of a fire.
One of the most effective spray-applied fireproofing methods is spray-fiber fireproofing. Our dedicated industry experts can help you determine which spray-applied fireproofing system is best for your facility based on local building code requirements and your budget.

Spray-fiber fireproofing is made of a dry mix of mineral wool fiber and a cement- or gypsum-based binder. It’s lighter than cementitious fireproofing, which reduces the load on steel columns, beams and other structural elements.
Spray-fiber fireproofing provides a strong and durable fireproofing layer once it cures. It’s often chosen for commercial and industrial buildings because it is highly effective and quick to install.

Absolutely. Spray-fiber fireproofing solutions are nontoxic and noncombustible.
Spray-fiber fireproofing is resistant to fungal growth, and humidity won’t negatively affect it. However, it should remain as dry as possible.
Spray-fiber can be applied to steel beams and columns, structural concrete, wall surfaces, etc. Once cured, it will provide long-lasting, durable protection. Your contractor can help you determine whether it’s the best fireproofing solution for your structure.
