Intumescent Fire Protection

About our Intumescent Fire protection

We are an applicator for the only BS EN Certified concrete intumescent coating in the UK. We are therefore able to take any project from inception, through calculations and engineer site visits to application and finally certification. We can provide this service to any location in the UK.

  • Bespoke Application calculations
  • Full site spray application
  • Engineer site visits
  • Top coat application if required
  • Upto 4 hours protection
  • Certification of application

How are intumescent coatings applied?
Our specialist technicians are fully trained and experienced in the application of intumescent fire protection, applied in 3 thin layers. The base coat is the layer that will react to the heat generated by fire.

The final thickness of the intumescent coating can be anywhere between 350 & 700 micrometers, resulting in a more aesthetically pleasing finish. This, in turn, makes it more favourable over vermiculite fire protection.
