Spray Applied Fireproofing Services

As a busi­ness own­er, you have tak­en pre­cau­tions to ensure your employ­ees, build­ing, and your busi­ness’s sus­tain­abil­i­ty are pro­tect­ed. Mul­ti-use build­ings or any com­mer­cial facil­i­ty with high-traf­fic and a busy team need to ensure they have installed flex­i­ble indus­tri­al fire­proof­ing even on the hard to reach areas of the build­ing to avoid future down­time and employ­ee injury. 

Kaloutas offers spray-applied fire­proof­ing ser­vices that can cov­er every cor­ner of your build­ing. Spray-applied fire­proof­ing (SFRM) pro­vides inher­ent fire resis­tance by pre­sent­ing a phys­i­cal bar­ri­er between the heat and steel. This ensures your peo­ple can exit the build­ing safe­ly with min­i­mal dam­age to your assets.

What to Know About Spray-Applied Fireproofing

Invest in Spray-Applied Fire­proof­ing Ser­vices with Kaloutas

Spray-applied fire­proof­ing can go any­where in your facil­i­ty, even on com­po­nents typ­i­cal­ly con­sid­ered fire­proof. It’s impor­tant to apply fire­proof­ing to these areas as well to main­tain the integri­ty of your build­ing. By cre­at­ing an extra bar­ri­er, spray-applied fire­proof­ing can save expen­sive assets typ­i­cal­ly viewed as fire­proof, like steel. Struc­tur­al steel is not flam­ma­ble, so you may won­der why fire­proof in the first place. At 1,000 degrees, steel can lose up to 40% of its strength; at 1,500 degrees, steel can lose up to 90% of its strength. Because the aver­age build­ing fire can reach tem­per­a­tures of 1,5002,000 degrees, a fire in your facil­i­ty will com­pro­mise its abil­i­ty to stay stand­ing, your equip­ment can become dam­aged from col­laps­ing beams, and you can face major lia­bil­i­ty issues. 

Dry and Wet Mix Spray-Applied Fireproofing

The phys­i­cal bar­ri­er between the fire and your asset is the fire­proof­ing mix. This mix comes in two forms: wet mix and dry mix. Dry mix is blown through a spray noz­zle. It is mixed with aerosolized water as it is applied.

Wet-mix is mixed with water into a mor­tar-like con­sis­ten­cy before it’s pumped through the noz­zle, where com­pressed air allows it to be sprayed.

Both dry-and wet-mix have sim­i­lar appli­ca­tions and per­for­mance. The choice of spec­i­fied prod­uct will vary depend­ing upon sev­er­al fac­tors – hourly fire rat­ing, thick­ness­es to achieve that rat­ing, envi­ron­men­tal con­di­tions (cli­mate con­trol), weath­er expo­sure, and dura­bil­i­ty to with­stand impact. To address each sce­nario, fire­proof­ing mate­ri­als are offered in low (com­mer­cial), medi­um, and high density.

Kaloutas will help design teams with assess­ing the cor­rect prod­uct for their project with man­u­fac­tur­er sup­port and pro­fes­sion­al­ly install the mate­r­i­al cho­sen, so the final result meets all fire­proof­ing code require­ments, meets all man­u­fac­tur­er require­ments, and is aes­thet­i­cal­ly pleasing.

The main goal of imple­ment­ing spray-applied fire­proof­ing plans from Kaloutas is first and fore­most to pro­vide safe­ty to you and your peo­ple.
