Fireproofing has now become a requirement for residential properties and commercial buildings. Even in cases where the building is built from metal, fireproofing should not be ignored. It will keep you safe in case of fire, and it serves as a coat to prevent electrical short circuits from overheating.
Active fireproofing (AFP) refers to installing equipment triggered by an action such as a sprinkler system or fire extinguisher. Products can be applied to steel and concrete substrates. They form a stable base, reliable bond, and dust-free surface, providing exceptional performance with a high yield capability and durability. The chosen products are tested and certified to the highest industry standards.
Importance of fireproofing
Homes catch fire not by terrible bushfire but by a fault in the electricity such as a faulty heater, electric blanket, or old wiring. It can also start through an accident in the kitchen or children playing with matches.
Unless it is put out, before the fire spreads, extensive damage occurs that usually means the home is not safe to live in anymore. It is vital to fireproof your home if you don’t want to risk losing it to fire. Even a fire in the house next door can affect your house and damage your property and even might result in losing lives.
