K-13 is a spray-applied thermal and acoustical cellulose insulation that is used as an insulation/exposed finish for its acoustic and thermal benefits. K-13s coating absorbs excess noise and provides an R-value of 3.75 per inch. K-13 meets the requirements for insulation, noise reduction, condensation control, texture and colour. K-13 has a natural texture and is currently available in seven colours.
K-13 is typically used as an exposed ceiling finish for interior and covered exterior applications (parkades) to absorb sound energy instead of reflecting it. K-13 reduces reverberation and excessive noise greatly improving ambient sound quality.
It is also used in areas such as indoor pools and ice areas to aid in condensation control. Installed correctly K-13 can prevent condensation on metal, concrete and other surfaces reducing ventilation requirements.
Z-3 MAX is a two-component, 100% polyurea protective coating that provides a flexible but extremely tough monolithic membrane with excellent water and chemical resistance. Its spray-on application creates a monolithic, seamless lining that conforms to any shape. With Z-3 Max's excellent water and chemical resistance, it is designed to weatherproof whatever it is adhered to. Z-3 Max is stable from -40 to 110 C and can withstand heavy loads with proper thickness build. It is also available in a variety of different colours.
DC315 is an intumescent coating to meet the 15-minute thermal barrier and ignition barrier protection over top of spray foam insulation.
It can also be applied to structural members as an aesthetically pleasing fireproofing product. The key feature of intumescents is that they expand significantly when exposed to high temperatures, such as those found in a fire.
Some intumescent products can expand to more than 100-times their original thickness. As the product expands it becomes much less dense, which makes it act as an insulator that keeps the high temperatures away from structural members or protected openings.
Rhino Epoxy 405 is a highly versatile solid and its wide variety of uses on concrete substrates including structural restoration, patching, and adhesive repairs. The long working life of Rhino 405 (60 minutes) is ideal for repairing large concrete floors, and restoration of deteriorated concrete structures. Rhino 405 applications are tack-free within 8 – 10 hrs.
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:
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.
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 wall or floor assemblies.
When a fire occurs, these materials slow the spread of destructive substances, including:
Roxul Safe 55 is a medium-density stone wool batt insulation firewall application where a fire-resistance rating is required.
It is designed for commercial, industrial, and residential buildings as a fire-stopping insulation. It is approved for use in a 2-hour fire-rated system.
It provides high-temperature fire protection, enhancing occupant safety, particularly when a fire separation wall is required.
Safe 55 can withstand intense heat up to 2150°F (1177°C) without melting, producing smoke, or propagating flames making a great fire-resistant insulation product.
