INTUMESCENT PAINT FOR STRUCTURAL STEEL
We recently completed a large structural steel fire protection project at Peachman Way, Norwich. The building, which is to be a new commercial premises for local business Greenleaf Holdings, needed all floor load bearing steel to be protected with an intumescent coating to achieve a 60 minute fire rating.
STRUCTURAL STEEL FIRE PROTECTION
The intumescent coating was applied using an airless sprayer, which gives a smooth and even finish, and can withstand wear and tear as well as harmful corrosion effects. The steel columns were to be boarded in at the final construction phase so did not require a top seal to be applied.
FIRE PROTECTION COATINGS
Working closely with our preferred intumescent coating supplier, Sherwin Williams, a steel loading report and painting specification was produced to use the Sherwin Williams FX1003 solvent based fireproof coating system. This was to ensure that the correct amount of intumescent paint was applied to each steel member to meet the structural steel fire protection requirements for this job.
60-MINUTE FIRE RATING
The thickness of all structural steel fire protection coatings are tested and recorded using our Elcometer DFT gauge. This ensures they are spray applied to the correct film thickness and that all conditions are within the manufacturers technical guidelines. Once the project was completed, a 60-minute fire certificate was issued for the project.
This 2000sqm project was completed in just under 3 weeks. Architect and project manager, Steve Medler was extremely happy with the service and efficiency of this on-site spraying project.

What our customers say…
I was impressed with the company’s technique of their spraying roofs for customers from a range of industries! As they demonstrated on their website, which was what I had in mind that would/could be the ideal way of getting over our holiday static’s roof covering peeling/flaking off, after just a few years. Very helpful in understanding our special requirements on my initial contact. Then responding with their cost estimate that was realistic and very professional.
Although dear Covid interrupted their team, they still reached the target of completing before our holiday site opens in April! Worked with our site manager courteously, taking extreme care in protecting statics either side, they completed the project to his satisfaction plus mine, having being able to view his photo of their work. The result being, an excellent professionally finished project throughout!!
Professional, friendly and very helpful company and guys to deal with. We bought an old industrial unit with an asbestos roof with internal guttering system that are prone to leaking – the advice and specialist solutions Cladspray provided were not only cost effective but very practical and have extended the useful life of the roof at least another 20 years – excellent company, service and support I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them!
