Structural fire protection is often vital for reinforcing steel structures within any building. By adding a protective layer to structural steel, the protective layer extends the length of time a building remain structurally stable within a fire scenario.

Cementitious protection is a fast and cost efficient method of providing up to 240 minutes fire protection to structural steelwork. Regarded as a non-decorative cementitious mortar based solution for use in the commercial and industrial sectors; these materials can be used in environments prone to impact and abrasion. Materials can be applied quickly in one spray coat to achieve 2 hours fire protection; this can reduce on site labour and application time costs compared with other multiple coat disciplines.
During our work and on completion of spray applications we are able to produce records of who applied, which area the work was carried out in, what specified system was used to protect the area and when the work was done. Each application area can be physically identified through this electronic data recording process with detailed drawings and photographic support available.
