Life safety plays a vital role in the design of buildings in today’s modern construction. Sprayed-on fireproofing systems provide a cost-effective approach to meet the hourly ratings required by local building codes and insurance companies. Fireproofing systems provide up to a four-hour rating on structural members, helping to prevent steel from collapsing during a fire.


Fireproofing is a passive form of protection that is always ready to protect the steel and ultimately lives in the event of a fire. Passive systems are constantly in place as opposed to active systems, such as sprinklers, which are required to activate before they perform.
