Advantages of Interior Fireproofing with Mastic Paint & Cable Spraying

Posted by Fire Protection Coatings on 2:25 AM 0 comments

Interior Fireproofing has become essential on walls, roofs, floors as well as doors and windows. The materials used now a days are not at all resisitant to fire because everyone wants to go for stylish interior, but have you considered if a fire breaks out may be not at your home but even at neigherhood, you are prone to it. Your stylish doors and walls won't stop them. You need to have interior fireproofing for all of these.
If you are planning a new house, do take this into consideration as it would make your work a whole lot easier. However homeowners can make existing interior doors fireproof using Mastic Paint or Cable Spraying as suggest by your Painting Contractor. There are many Painting Contractors in the market but don't forget to their services into account. Reliability and trustworthyness should also be considered. So always be careful when chosing the one for your precious home.

Generally Mastic Paint is ideal for use in a diverse variety of commercial, social and industrial environments where conventional fireproofing is not satisfactory or appropriate as a finish. The Fire Proof intumescent Mastic Paint will withstand weathering conditions, dangerous chemical fumes and a range of other severe environmental abuses.

Fireproofing by Cable Spray is done in the conventional way by spraying in a cross manner . It is a latex-based, spray applied coating designed to protect electrical cables against the bursting of fire. Cable Spraying, when properly installed, will limit spread of flames and provide short-term circuit integrity during a fire break out. In cable spraying, wet thickness of the coating must be minimum 2.5 mm on all sides. 

Moreover, if you want to fireproof hard to- get- at places, then an extension nozzle can be used. The fire protective Cable Spray must be water-based. The coating should dry to form a flexible coating which is water as well as weather-resistant film and should contain no other solvents, or inorganic fibers. The coating should be capable enough of being applied by brush or by airless spray. The approved coating should be FM Systems Approved.

Characteristics of these fireproof materials are that they are water-based and can be used for easy installation. They are Thyrotrophic for high-build application, Safe with No solvents and asbestos, Nonhalogenated, water resistant, etc. They also provide longer pump life and requires less maintenance too.

Interior FireProofing of Doors can also be done by replacing them with secured, fireproofed doors. These doors are usually constructed from heavy-grade chip board and are infused with fireproofing solvent. Comparatively thicker than standard interior doors, they provide about 30 to 60 minutes of fire resistance when fire breaks out. But this increases expense or should be used when starting construction.

Fire Detection and Exit Measures at Schools for Fireproofing System

Posted by Fire Protection Coatings on 12:29 AM 0 comments

Every School Management should ensure that there are adequate means to warn people of a fire in the school premises. School Fire Protection could take the form of School KBS Coatings or School Painting Services Australia in larger premises, while in small schools it could be whistles, hand bells, or manually operated fire alarm bell. The key point is to make sure that the fire alarm system can be heard throughout the entire school during an emergency.

A Fireproofing System is of considerable value in providing protection against fire in schools. If not covered promptly, a fire can grow and spread to a level that will be difficult to extinguish. A School Fire Protection system must be monitored throughout the year to enable early detection of a fire even when there is not a single person on the premises or if the fire breaks out in a concealed space.

Smoke and heat detectors should be installed and inspected every six months to make sure that they are working properly. Additionally, batteries in battery operated detectors should be exchanged at least once a year. Moreover, Adequate fire alarm call points should be installed all around the school.

The common causes of fire in schools can be malicious fire, External waste mismanagement, inadequate control of building contractors, Poor housekeeping or storage arrangement and Electrical fires.

Let us see, what can be the means of escape in case of a fire break out in schools?

(a) School Authorities should make sure that there are an adequate number of exits from school buildings and places of assembly. However the number of exits required for a given building or assembly place depends on the maximum number of people that can occupy a space or the capacity of each exit as well as the travel distance required. You can consult with your local Fire Officer so as to know the number of exits required in your particular building.

(b) Fire escape routes in the premises must be clearly marked and all fire escape signs should be stick in places that clearly indicate escape routes.

(c) Keep exit doors unlocked whenever the building or space is occupied. You can use push bars where School Maintenance or security concerns require doors to be locked from the outside.

These means of escape from fire can help you to protect children and other staff members of school during fire. But having School KBS Coatings or School Painting Services Australia can keep you away from fire altogether. Precaution is always considered better than cure. Hence School buildings must be adequately fire protected with painting or coatings. Children are our future and their education directly relates to our growth. Ensuring School Fire Protection is key to it.
