Spray Applied Fireproofing

What is Spray Applied Fireproofing?

Spray applied fireproofing, commonly referred to as sprayed fire resistive materials (SFRM) or sprayed fireproofing, is a passive fire protection system that reduces the rate of temperature increase in concrete or steel during a fire. By reducing the rate of temperature increase, spray applied fireproofing prolongs the building’s structural integrity.

Applications of Sprayed Fireproofing

Spray applied fireproofing can provide fire protection to steel and concrete structures and help fire-rated buildings adhere to safety regulations. Nettles Construction Solutions is an expert in both cementitious and intumescent fireproofing. Cementitious fireproofing is a gypsum and/or Portland cement-based material that is used to insulate structural steel and concrete from intense heat (cementitious means having the properties of cement). Intumescent fireproofing is a coating that swells to many times its original thickness when it is exposed to intense heat. As intumescent fireproofing expands, the coating insulates the structure, providing protection.
