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…
The two guys did a fantastic job and we’re very pleased with the new look of the building.
They were both very polite and professional, both worked safe on site in the MEWP and cordoned off the working at height areas as the moved across the building, I’d welcome them back any time to work with us again.
It’s nice to have contractors onsite that are happy in their work with a great eye for detail that deliver their best finish possible.
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!
