Frequently asked question

How do you fire protect structural steel sections?

Structural steel beams and columns have an inherent level of fire performance however in most circumstances additional fire protection will be required in the event of a fire to keep the steel below the failure temperature of 550oC for the time duration required (e.g. 30, 60, 90 or 120 minutes).

We offer a choice of two systems depending on requirements, firstly the FireCase system which uses the Glasroc F FIRECASE board to form a frameless encasement around the beam or column, and secondly the GypLyner ENCASE system which uses Gyproc FireLine plasterboard mounted on a Gypframe metal framework. Please refer to WHITE BOOK Chapter 03 Section 02 Page 02 or Chapter 03 Section 03 Page 02 for more details.
