Frequently asked question

How do you protect a steel column within a masonry wall

Our FireCase system can be used to provide fire protection to steel columns within a masonry wall. Please refer to White Book Chapter 03 Section 02 Page 18 which includes 3 technical drawings providing detailing guidance depending on how much the column projects from the wall. The thickness of Glasroc F FireCase board to be applied will depend on the section factor of the structural steel (A/V), if you need help with calculating this please e-mail
