Class 0 & Class 1
Spread of Flame

Are not intumescent paints nor will
they protect the substrate.
The testing under BS676 part 6 & 7 produces
a fire rating of Class 1, 2, 3 or 4 depending
upon how far a flame travels over a surface.
A Class 0 spread of flame material must
not only achieve a Class 1 classification for
spread of flame, but also BS 476 (part 6) Fire Propagation Test, which measures the amount of heat released.

Protective Coatings

These are “Reactive Paints” in that when
subjected to heat above a specified
temperature it will react by swelling and
providing a thermally insulated barrier
against temperatures high enough to
weaken the supporting steel of a building.
The protection given is determined by steel
size and weight and intumescent paint loadings;
for a given steel size and weight the loadings will vary depending upon the paint type and the required
protection in terms of time

We can supply the following:

  • Protection for metal, timber, floors, walls and ceilings, doors, and more.
    Interior and exterior systems.
