During a fire, exposed steel can start to weaken at temperatures as low as 600 degrees. By adding a simple fireproofing layer, the time it takes to weaken the steel can be extended by hours, allowing building occupants to evacuate to a safe location. Intumescent coatings are a great way to protect structural steel, providing up to a three-hour fire rating, depending on the application.

Intumescent fireproofing products look and apply similarly to paint. They are a thin-film coating that can be sprayed or rolled into place, and then they can be color-matched to nearby surfaces using a compatible topcoat of paint. Unlike traditional fireproofing, such as cement-based products, intumescent coatings are thin and blend well with surrounding materials.
During a fire, intumescent coatings will begin to char and expand, creating a thick insulating layer over the structural steel that provides anywhere from a one-hour to three-hour fire rating, depending on the brand and application specifics. With good looks and superior protection, intumescent coatings are a great option for any structural steel in a commercial building, especially steel visible from the interior.
