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.
At Alpha Insulation & Waterproofing, we’re pleased to offer our clients some of the best intumescent fireproofing products available, as well as professional installations that ensure the job is done properly.
Our company has served the Southeast and South Central regions of the U.S. since 1982, from San Antonio, Texas, to Miami, Florida, Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and beyond. Our experienced personnel are happy to help with all your fireproofing, waterproofing and commercial insulation needs.
Make sure your building is protected from fire with intumescent coating services from Alpha Insulation & Waterproofing.
Intumescent fireproofing products look and apply similarly to paint. They’re 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 start 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.
