Fireproofing is the application of a spray applied material to a rated floor, roof, and / or column assembly to protect the structural steel of the building for a given period of time. At temperatures of 800 - 1,000 degrees F., steel can bend and buckle under the load of the building, with possible collapse ensuing.
Spray applied intumescent paints and Cementitious materials cling to the steel, preserving the strength. These materials prevent heat damage to the steel providing valuable evacuation time for occupants and firefighters, and protecting property. The individual steel members hold so the building retains its structural integrity.
NYC Fireproofing also applies specific intumescent paints depending on the particular application and exposed steel design.
