Industrial Fireproofing is the difference between property sustaining damages or a complete collapse in the event of a fire. This type of passive fire protection is the process of rendering something fire-resistant or incombustible. In case of a fire outbreak, industrial fireproofing allows affected structures to remain standing. At the same time, the critical control systems continue to enable people to vacate the structure or allow firefighters to bring the fire under control. This asset can be lifesaving in facilities where fires are prone, such as oil and gas facilities. Industrial fireproofing is a key component for any business to ensure employees’ safety and maintain affordable insurance.
There are various ways to implement industrial fireproofing in any facility. The implementation provides steel construction more resistance to high temperatures during a fire. The most common way to apply this protection is by utilizing spray-applied fire-resistant material. Other popular types of industrial fireproofing include a cementitious and intumescent coating. A cementitious coating is a lightweight coating that is resistant to extremely high temperatures. The coating is well suited for environments not exposed to heavy vibrations, i.e., earthquakes or environments high in moisture. An intumescent coating, which is applied just like paint, provides a much thicker barrier between the fire and the protected structure. The coating expands as it is exposed to vastly increasing temperatures, allowing a bigger buffer between the steel and the flames as the fire grows.
However, these measures are passive and put in place to allow active measures like sprinklers, fire extinguishers, and fire departments to subdue the fire before industrial fireproofing wears out.
