STRUCTURAL FIRE PROTECTION
Rise & Shine Group KSA Coatings is proud to bring you the most advanced fireproofing technology available. Avoid expensive oversights and application issues when specifiying fireproofing, choose Rise & Shine KSA and leave the rest up to us.
With intumescent or lightweight cementitious coatings used to protect steel in both conventional and hydrocarbon fires, we have a full range of products to solve the toughest challenges, dramatically delaying the time it takes for steel to heat up to a critical deformation temperature. Our in-house software and databases provide rapid, accurate and easily updated fireproofing loading information.
Intumescent coatings are the tried and tested way of protecting buildings and ultimately people and lives. Our intumescent coatings have been exhaustively tested both in laboratories but also to national and international standards in independent testing houses all over the world.
CEMENTITOUS FIRE PROOFING (Low, Medium & High Density)
Cementitious Sprayed Fire Resistive Materials (SFRMs) offer high performance, cost effective fire protection solutions for both concealed and exposed steel structures and assemblies. These durable, wet mix, gypsum and Portland cement based products have been formulated to meet any density specification, performance criteria and IBC building code requirements, providing specifiers the ultimate flexibility in design and construction
INTUMESCENT OR CEMENTITOUS PROOFING FOR STRUCTURAL FIRE PROTECTION
The most common use for intumescent paint in architecture is to provide an aesthetically pleasing finish on exposed structural steel members.
Typical spray applied fireproofing provides a thick and spongey surface that requires a finished surround to hide and protect the steel member. Intumescent paint provides the same level of protection in a coating that looks like a thin layer of paint.
The paint product is applied to the steel in layers as needed to generate the thickness that corresponds to the level of protection mandated by the building code. A final layer of intumescent paint is mixed with pigments that provide the desired finish colour for the steel.
Intumescent coatings, referred to as intumescent paint, are used in buildings as a passive fire resistance measure. They can be applied to structural members as an aesthetically pleasing fireproofing product. The key feature of intumescents is that they expand significantly when exposed to high temperatures, such as those found in a fire. Some intumescent products can expand to more than 100- times the original thickness. As the product expands it becomes much less dense, which makes it act as in insulator that keeps the high temperatures away from structural members or protected openings.
