Efficient Protection of Steel Against Fire
Galco has recently become one of the newest approved intumescent paint contractors in Ireland offering Sika’s Unitherm Platinum and Sherwin Williams Firetex FX6002.
Fire is one of the biggest risks that can not only completely destroy a building, but also businesses, public organizations and of course lives. Irish building regulations state that a building should remain structurally intact during a fire, providing a safe escape route for those inside and creating an entry point for fire fighters.
The paint is applied to generate the thickness that complies with the mandatory level of thickness required in the building regulations. Intumescent coating ensures these regulations are met by protecting the static stability of a building for a specific period of time (60 min, 90 min, 120 min) while also helping reduce the spread of the fire.
Our intumescent painting service is carried out by trained and certified operatives. Our production supervisor Jaroslaw Kawinski is a fully certified Level 3 paint inspector and therefore, by choosing Galco as your intumescent paint contractor, you can count on the highest quality when working with Galco.
The intumescent paints used by Galco comply with the most relevant national and international standards (including EN, UL, EAD (ETAG), ASTM, AS, Certifire), in order to confirm that they meet the highest fire resistance requirements and consequently can help save people’s lives!
