Monokote products are single component, spray-applied, mill-mixed, fire-resistive plasters. Monokote fireproof coatings bond tightly to steel and concrete substrates, forming a uniform, durable material that does not spall, dust, or flake.
Fireproofing spray acts as a barrier against heat transfer from fire source to the substrate, while at the same time the binder releases water or crystallization to provide a cooling action to the substrate.
HiBAR is a semi-cementitious spray-applied fireproofing used to provide added thermal resistance, acoustical control and fire endurance to various building assemblies. HiBAR is applied quickly and economically without the messy clean-up problems encountered with heavier we-mix materials. HiBAR cures to an off-white colour with an attractively textured surface.
HiBAR application is typically for improving the fire endurance rating of metal building substrates such as:
Fire stopping is the sealing of any openings to prevent fire (including smoke and heat) from passing through multiple building compartments.
The spread of a fire is contained by creating fire-resisting compartments, which subdivide the building (vertically or horizontally).
Buildings must ensure that any openings and gaps are fire stopped to restrict both lateral and vertical fire spread. A fire stop is a fire protection system made of various components used to seal openings and joints in fire-resistance walls or floor assemblies.
When a fire occurs, these materials slow the spread of destructive substances, including:
