A spray applied structural fire protection system. Low density gypsum plaster with greater simplicity of
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.
