We work closely with PPG and exclusively use their Protective & Marine Coatings which have been specially formulated to help save lives and protect assets
The superior cellulosic fire protection solution
STEELGUARD is a complete range of systems for various grades of fire protection, climatic exposure conditions and application techniques.
These market-leading coatings are specifically formulated to provide superb fire protection for civil buildings, particularly appropriate where exposed steel structures have been used as part of the design in buildings such as shopping centres, airport terminals, sports stadia and schools. But if a fire strikes, the potential for disaster is frightening. Within minutes unprotected steel can reach the critical temperature that causes it to lose stability and collapse.
The value of STEELGUARD intumescent coatings is that they provide the vital extra time to help people escape and also allow fire fighters to save the building itself.
