Protecting a building from fire is serious business. Modern building codes now require fireproofing in new buildings and a thermal barrier over spray foam. Georgian Insulation Systems, installs Grace Monokote Cementitious coatings and DC315 an Intumescant coating, to protect steel structural surfaces and spray foam.
Grace Monokote® Fireproofing
recognized world-wide for performance and durability
Grace Monokote® spray applied cementitious fireproofing is specified by architects and favored by applicators to protect a building's structural steel from failure in the event of fire. Recognized worldwide for their in-place performance and superior durability, Monokote products can be found in all types of buildings including high-rise construction, manufacturing facilities, schools, hospitals, airports and sports facilities. These products provide a formidable last line of defense in the event of fire. Spray applied fireproofing products protect the structural steel, preventing the loss of structural integrity and helping to prevent structural collapse.
Spray Foam insulation must also be covered with a thermal barrier when exposed to the occupied area of a building. Spray foam has fire inhibitors blended into the material, as a result spray foam will not add fuel in the event of a fire. However, spray foam will burn if other combustible materials are burning. If the source of combustion is removed then the spray foam will self extinguish. In order to further protect the building occupants, a thermal barrier must be installed over the foam. For example a thermal barrier is required when spray foam is installed in an unfinished basement.
The knowledgeable technicians at Georgian Insulation Systems, can install fireproofing on any size project.
