Vancouver’s Intumescent Spray Fireproofing Professionals

Intumescent fireproofing is a thin-film coating which allows architectural features to structural steel columns, beams, and braces to remain as an exposed steel finish, rather than boxed in with cladding or dry wall. The finish can be coloured using a decorative topcoat for aesthetically pleasing designs.

Applications for Intumescent Fireproofing
Intumescent fireproofing can be applied to interior locations such as libraries, hospitals, schools, airports, transit stations, and shopping centres.
Exterior grade intumescent coatings can be applied to industrial buildings, ship or ferry marine vessels, automotive dealerships, airports, and commercial buildings where exposed steel requires a ULC or UL rating using an approved ASTM 119 or CAN/ULC-S101 system.

Medium Density, High Resistance Fireproofing for British Columbia

Medium density spray fireproofing is generally applied in areas that are publicly accessible, and therefore prone to damage. This material’s resistive qualities make it ideal for areas such as exposed columns and braces that require a stronger, harder, and more durable application than typical fireproofing can provide. Medium density fireproofing can also be used for specialized industrial or commercial applications.

Within our projects gallery, you can see an example of our medium density spray fireproofing that has been applied at the Vancouver Convention Centre.

Medium Density Spray Fireproofing Products

Greer Contracting applies several varieties of medium density spray fireproofing, including:
• A/D Type 5 MD™
• A/D Type 7GP™
• Cafco® 400
• Cafco Blaze-Shield® HP
