Improve the Safety of Your Building with Fireproof Coatings
When a fire breaks out, an area with surfaces properly coated with intumescent paint can deliver benefits that conventional paint cannot. Arch Painting excels at the application of all types of fire resistant and fire retardant intumescent coatings that provide this kind of effective fire protection of buildings and homes.
Fire Retardant Intumescent Coatings can be used:
- As a fire retarding coating on roof timbers, floor rafters and support members.
- To protect corridors, stair wells between stories, and exits from buildings.
- On dividing walls around space heaters, furnaces, or heating plants in basements or compartmented in living areas.
- In working areas of a factory or process plant exposed to gas or oil-fired heaters, welding or brazing operations, handling of combustible materials.
Intumescent paints are not designed to prevent fires. They are designed to keep damage to a minimum and to “buy time” until help can arrive. However, even in severe fires that have been brought under control in reasonable time, the substrate wall, ceiling, and support timber may often be scraped clean and found to be still in serviceable condition.
