What are some good materials for a fireproof building?

Wildfires have been raging around the Pacific Northwest leaving structures damaged or in some cases, completely ruined. Now more than ever, people are looking for ways to keep their buildings fireproof. A fireproof building will help protect not only the structure itself but lives.

Although keeping the area around your industrial plant free of vegetation and debris or landscaping with hardscrabble will help protect the exterior of your building, what if a fire happens on the interior? Every structure should have a sprinkler system in place by code, but there are ways to add further fire-proofing measures.

Our fireproofing products

Our experienced team at Spray-On Foam uses spray-on fireproofing products to help ensure your building is fireproof. If there is a fire, your structure will stand longer, which will keep it safer while help arrives to put out the flames. Some of the fireproofing products we use include:

Cafco – Made by Isolatek, these products can be used to allow for ornamental steel to be seen, yet still protected from fire. With a coat of primer and then a top coat, the steel will still be visible while providing the necessary fire rating. Isolatek makes many coating products designed for industrial, commercial, and manufacturing facilities.

Monokote – With 50 years of fireproofing experience in commercial structures, Monokote reduces the rate of temperature in steel and concrete during a fire. This allows more time for escape and for first responders to do their job.

Albi Clad – Made for both interior and exterior applications, this product can be used in corrosive environments, protect materials from UV exposure, and stands up to severe weather, vibrations, and impact.

We only use the best of the best in fireproofing products. Whether it is applications for the exterior or interior of your plant or facility, we understand that your property is valuable and important to protect. We will come up with the best solution for your budget and your unique space.

In addition to fireproofing properties, we also provide many other services. Insulation, asbestos abatement, sound-proofing, and much more.
