Residential, Commercial & Industrial Fireproofing
When a structural fire occurs, it is not a question of whether a fire can damage the core structure of a building, but it is a question of when. Simply put, it takes longer for fire to affect fire-resistant materials, like those we apply to the core beams of a building.
Fireproofing is legally mandated by the Fire Department of New York (FDNY), the Department of Buildings, the Health Department and most insurance companies.
Protecting your building or home from fire is not only to be up to code - more importantly, it is for the protection of property and the value of human life itself.
ARN Insulation Specializes In Two Different Kinds Of Fireproofing Materials
SFRM - Spray-Applied Fire Resistive material
Spray-applied Fire Resistive Material (SFRM) is the most common way to provide fireproofing protection because this method is quick, highly effective and inexpensive. SFRM is applied directly onto steel surfaces via a high-pressured spraying process. SFRM has a rating of up to a four (4) hour resistance for assemblies, beams, joists, columns, walls and partitions.
Intumescent Paint is a paint-like coating that expands and chars in a fire to provide superior fire resistibility. It is spray-applied to steel in layers with a fire rating of up to four (4) hours. This product is a great solution when aesthetics come into place and steel is exposed to the public. This material is advantageous as it can be used inside and outside a building.
