Fireproofing

Fire can be a substantial threat to any home, business or establishment. Flames can spread almost instantly to consume untold amounts of effort, money and time spent on construction. With some planning and foresight, it’s possible to implement features during the building or repair phase that can avert or mitigate the effects of fire and prevent a potential disaster or significant financial loss. Seeing fire spread can be a truly horrifying experience. Fire can double itself every minute which means it can turn a large building into ashes in under an hour and sometimes much sooner than that. More importantly, the lives of the inhabitants, employees or residents inside the space can be found in a situation where precious seconds mater.

Fireproof spray is one of the best measures for preventing and delaying the spread of fire. It helps make materials more resistant to fire and reinforces them against the effects of intense heat such as present during a fire. Fireproof foam can be applied to any section of a residence or commercial establishment including the roof, supporting columns, beams, joints, floor, basement etc. Using fireproof foam to coat these areas is valuable for comprehensive protection. Flames can originate in any of these areas and prevention can start with proper fireproof spray coverage.

A beneficial side effect of fireproof spray is its sound insulation ability. Noise and surrounding sounds can be reduced with the application of fireproof foam. Based on the degree of insulation required, different amounts and types of foams will be applied. The other advantage of using fireproof foam is that it provides heat insulation. This can mean a decrease in heating or cooling costs depending on the areas where insulation is applied. Depending on the specific needs of your home or business, strategic insulation can be applied in order to achieve sound and thermal transfer objectives. There should be a strict adherence to the regulations in terms of the application and the type of material that is used to spray your home or business. The right materials will prevent fire from spreading and thus potentially avert the loss of life in the event of a disaster
