Fireproofing

Blouin Brothers Insulation is well experienced in fireproofing, offering customers a unique, one-source approach to fireproofing. We specialize in:

  • cementitious fireproofing (cement-based protection)
  • mineral fiber fireproofing (interior or semi-exposed spaces)
  • intumescent fireproofing (applied as a protective paint)

Fireproofing applications would typically include steel decking, structural beams, and siding systems.

Passive Fire Protection (PFP) is a method of fireproofing with a purpose of containing a fire and/or slowing the spread. Using fire-resistant materials, the building structure is protected and safeguarded. And when properly installed, PFP can save valuable lives, assets, and the building structure itself. When fireproofing protects the structural steel of a building, essential "egress" time is provided for both occupants and residents.

Blouin Brothers Insulation is a qualified applicator for Grace Monokote®, Z3306-MK6 products.

Many of our spray-applied fireproofing products are widely used for interior structural steel, and are very well respected throughout the world. The products bond well to steel and concrete, and form a uniform coating that is both durable and long lasting. Mineral fiber products are particularly well suited for fireproofing structural steel columns, steel joists, and metal decking. When well installed, an effective level of thermal resistance (R-Value) is provided at the same time. In addition to fire protection and insulation, mineral fiber is also excellent for soundproofing.

Intumescent fireproof coatings are applied as "paint". When exposed to fire, the coating swells and expands, becoming a "meringue-like" foam that protects steel from being damaged. The main benefit of intumescent fireproofing is its aesthetic appeal. When applied, this decorative coating is ideal for exposed surfaces where appearance is important. These fireproof products are being increasingly used to fire-protect exposed structural steel.

Bottom line, quality fireproofing will enhance a building's structural integrity. As professionals in fireproofing, Blouin Brothers is committed to delivering real value - with high quality products, timely schedules, and superior installation.
