Description

A gypsum based (with no mineral fibres), machine applied fire protection system. It is acost effective and fast application system for the fire protection of steel and concrete structures. It bonds tightly to steel and concrete substrates, forming a hard surface which does not spall, dust or flake. Being gypsum based, is not designed for continuous exposure to weather or water. In both BS476 and the new European Standards the fire resistance performance of an element is judged against the three criteria of load-bearing capacity, integrity and insulation. The European Classification System will use the abbreviations of R, E and I respectively.

Applications:

  • Structural fire resistance.
  • Steel beams and columns.
  • Cellular beams.
  • Composite deck.
  • Concrete.
  • Refurbishment or new construction.

Advantages:

  • Longevity: If undisturbed, Monokote is designed to last for the life of the building.
  • Proven in-place performance: It will stay in place during construction phase, for the life of the building until the day of the fire and meanwhile the intervention of the fire fighters.
  • Safety: Monolithic barrier with no joints and do not need a chemical reaction.
  • Thin system: No need to allow the room between steels and over-cladding for expansions that is required for intumescent coating.
  • Low density: Less net weight applied on the structures.
  • Value for money: Direct application on unprimed steel with no corrosion pre-treatment in a controlled environment in a C1 (BS EN ISO 12944-2:1988).
  • Program benefit: Installation to start as soon as the concrete deck of the floor above is poured.
