Steel is a building material that is classified as non-combustible, but in
case of fire, steel structures quickly lose their load-bearing capacity at high
temperatures. We offer a variety of solutions to protect steel structures.
The fire resistance of steel structures can be successfully enhanced by the
use of special fire-resistant paints. You can choose between water and solvent-based
The intumescent coating can be
overpainted with topcoats to achieve an aesthetic appearance in desired colour. Sherwin-Williams high quality topcoats provide
also corrosion protection for external use up to category C4.
Silicate Boards In Scandinavia, innovative lightweight fire
protection boards have been developed to increase the fire resistance of steel
structures. The boards are easy to handle and have a wide range of applications
due to their light weight and good fire resistance. Boards meet the highest
environmental, health and safety standards and comply with EU requirements. FireFree Scandiboardsprovide the structures with
the fire resistance classification of R30 to R240.
Protection Wool Stone wool has been a very
common fireproofing material for many years and it is also suitable for
increasing the fire resistance of steel structures. You can choose between
different wool board thicknesses to achieve the required
fire resistance time.
Fire-Resistant Plasters Spray-applied fire-resistant
plasters, such as
Monokote MK6S, are
inexpensive solutions for achieving good fire resistance of large surfaces. With
fire-resistant plasters, you can increase the fire resistance of metal, wood
and concrete surfaces. Unlike conventional spray-applied plasters, the fire-resistant
plasters are lightweight and do not add significant extra load to the
