Structural Steel Fire Protection Boards, Intumescent Coatings and Wet Spray Inspection

 

Structural steel fire protection boards, intumescent coatings and wet spray are different methods with which structural steel can be protected from fire, limiting heat transfer.

Why are structural steel fire protection boards, intumescent coatings and wet spray important?

 

Structural steel fire protection boards, intumescent coatings and wet spray are vital in the protection of structural steel members from the effects of fire maintaining the integrity, therefore limiting the likelihood of the structural collapse of a building in the event of fire.
