All the steel structure of the building is required to be either encased with concrete or applied with fireproofing protection coat. The most commonly used passive fire protection to the steel structure is vermiculite or cementitious fire proofing.
The application can be done with hand plaster or spray on or applied method to all shapes of steel structure like roof truss, beams, columns and steel staircase.
The fireproofing coating of vermiculite method can protect the steel structure for severely damage when there is a fire and temperatures can up to 1200ºC. Without any protection of the steel surface, the structure steel will lose approximate 50% of its load carrying capacity when the temperatures approach 600ºC.
The fire rating of the vermiculite or cementitious spray-on system can range from 1 hour to 4 hour depend on the thickness required and various sizes, and thickness of the steel members.
