550 °C, which is considered the critical temperature for structural steel, above which it is in jeopardy of losing its strength, leading to collapse.
So the aim for fire protection systems, as typically demonstrated in fire testing , is the ability to maintain the item or the side to be protected at or below either 140 °C (for structures, walls, floors and electrical circuits required to have a fire-resistance rating) .This is based, in most countries, on the basic test standards for walls ,floors & structures such as BS 476: Part 22: 1987,
BS EN 1364-1: 1999 & BS EN 1364-2: 1999, UL 1709, ASTM E119 etc.
Fire testing involves live fire exposures upwards of 1100 °C, depending on the fire-resistance rating and duration.
Rise & Shine Contracting LLP is proud to bring you the most advanced fireproofing technology available. Avoid expensive oversights and application issues when specifying fireproofing by choosing Rise & Shine India and leave the rest to us.
With intumescent or lightweight cementitious coatings we have a full range of products to solve the toughest challenges, dramatically delaying the time taken for steel to attain critical deformation temperature. Our in-house software and databases provide rapid, accurate and easily updated fireproofing loading information.
Our solutions will protect surfaces in conventional, hydrocarbon or jet fire scenarios.
Intumescent coatings are the tried and tested way of protecting and providing aesthetic appeal to the building as well as ultimately saving lives and assets. These intumescent coatings have been exhaustively tested in various in house laboratories and independent testing houses all over the world to meet national and international standards.
