Structural Steel

New Project (3) (6) (3).png

APPLICATION OVERVIEW

With the increasing use of structural steel in construction, designers need fire protection solutions that provide a combination of fast installation and cost-effectiveness whilst achieving the desired finish.

Our Rock Mineral Wool fire protection solutions are designed to protect the steel from the heat of a fire. This delays the loss of structural integrity and the possible collapse of the building, allowing extra time for both the occupants to escape and fire services to tackle the fire.
