Fireproofing

Even with modern materials and modern construction techniques, the need for fire resistant products has never been higher. According to a recent USFA study, every year in the US:

  • Over 2 million fires are reported to fire departments
  • There are more than 4,500 deaths and 30,000 injuries due to residential fires, more than floods, earthquakes, hurricanes, and tornadoes combined.
  • The majority of fire-related deaths and injuries are to children and elderly people.
  • More than $10 billion US dollars in damage is caused by fires, even with the widespread use of smoke alarms and sprinklers.
  • A fire can double in size every 30 seconds, within 3 minutes a fire can consume the walls, ceiling, and contents of the room in which it started.
  • Heat isn’t the only dangerous aspect of a fire; the carbon monoxide it produces can kill anyone in the immediate area too.

Fire protection is the key to fire prevention. All aspects of the building process are involved to make materials, structures and equipment more fire resistant. Through a process of passive fire prevention, fire-retardant coatings are an effective method and often the last line of defence in fire protection in the event of a fire.
