Passive Fire Protection (PFP)

Passive Fire Protection (PFP) acts to preserve the structural integrity of a building or steel structure by providing thermal protection in the form of a coating or cladding. Steel structures must be fire-proofed with PFP products in order to minimise damage to the core structure and to prolong its stability in the event of a fire. We specialise in the application of the following types of PFP in marine, oil & gas and construction industries:

  • Intumescent coatings
  • Cementitious products

Intumescent coatings are typically epoxy-based and require spray-on application using specialist equipment and experienced applicators, thus providing a heat-resistant barrier. There are a wide variety of colours available, allowing the client to design the functional aesthetic they want to achieve.

Cementitious products are applied using a low-pressure spray that pumps a slurry mortar onto the steel structure, creating a durable coating that can withstand high temperatures. Best suited to non-visible areas.

Our track record for providing quality fire-proofing includes projects for metro stations, stadiums, the Hong Kong airport and liquefied natural gas plants in Kazakhstan and Russia.
