WHY DO MATERIALS REQUIRE FIRE PROTECTION?
Most materials are not inherently resistant to the effects of fire and therefore require fire protection. Steel is the most prominently protected material but protection can include other materials such as aluminum and plastics.
Whatever the material to be protected from the effects of a fire the principles are the same, namely, to prevent the rise in temperature of the protected substrate to maintain its structural integrity.
Put simply fire protection gives you TIME to escape and TIME to extinguish the fire reducing damage to the asset and its surroundings.Due to the different nature of fire types and standards the correct product selection is critical.
