The protection of steel from the effects of fire requires a coating of Passive Fire Protection (PFP) material. This high performance material requires exacting standards to be adhered to in each application to ensure that the system will work as designed. A thick film coating of up to 20mm is applied with reinforcement materials. In the event of a fire the coating provides a heat resistant shield to protect the steel substrate from the effects of the fire which could cause weakening and collapse of the structure.
