Fire Protection Paint Coatings UK/London/Birmingham/Coventry/Leicester
Our company provides nationwide specialist fire protective paint coating services in London, Birmingham, Leicester, Coventry and across the entire UK.
Intumescent paint is used in the commercial and industrial sector; it can be applied on or off-site which gives an appearance similar to a paint finish, while also producing a low odour making it ideal for use in confined areas. It is designed to expand when exposed to high levels of heat, giving up to 240 minutes of protection this will reduce any immediate impact of fire spreading and heat damage. The increase of temperature causes a chemical reaction; the intumescent paint expands to many times its original thickness which provides insulating foam to protect the substrates.
The requirement for appropriate fire retardant paint coatings on public buildings is an essential health and safety concern that has been publicly emphasised by the recent tragedy at the Grenfell Tower Block in London as documented on the news around the world.
At Riolett Industrial coatings we provide a range of fireproof cladding and internal building coatings and paints certified for use on surfaces that are not only required by law to comply with but also a variety of projects where these extra safety measures could benefit our clients but aren't necessarily required by law.
The coatings cover a wide range of applications from wood surfaces, structural steel, plaster ceilings, concrete surfaces though to fibreglass materials. These coatings have extensively been used in many buildings such as Buckingham Palace and Oslo Opera House.
We offer a wide range of top coatings options along with a 20 or 30-year guarantee. This water-based coating comes with a 30, 45, 60,120,240 minute protection time which is applied to universal beams, hollow sections, columns as well as cellular beam designs.
National and International fire regulations state that buildings must have the ability to contain fire within compartment sections for rated times, allowing for the full evacuation of all occupants, the intumescent paint is applied over steel and cast iron using a roller, bush or spray but cannot be applied over rust, no stripping back is necessary before the paint is applied, this comes in a 30, 45, 60,120,240 minute protection coating.
