Structural Steel and Structural Timber are vital components of every building. They literally hold up the building and are designed to bear the weight of the interior structure.
They support walls, floors, roofs, internal walls and all compartments in your building.
There are compartments that you can see, such as rooms, but also the compartments that you can’t see that are dressed in lowered ceilings and raised floors. Essential services run through these compartments and they are supported by Steel and Timber.
In the case of fire they will be exposed to high temperatures. The durability and fire resistance of these determine how long you have to evacuate a building or how long you have to save property.
If they can withstand heat for a longer time than they can now, the rebuilding costs will be reduced and time will be saved with all the obvious benefits of this.
We sandblast and scrape load bearing timer and load bearing steel. Then a primer, followed by an intumescent paint is applied by hand or with a spray gun depending on accessibility.
This intumescent paint can expand up to fifty times it’s original thickness and that protects your structure. This expanded product also helps to block the spread of smoke and flames.
This allows up to an extra 120 minutes of structural integrity during which life and property can be protected.
Fire Control use the best quality products, apply it to the manufacturers standards and certify each area of application.
