The range of Passive Fire Protection products installed by Fitzpatrick Insulation & Passive Fire Protection provides fire stopping and fire resistance throughout the whole construction process, ensuring that the fire resistance of protected walls, floors, and roofs is never compromised by services or voids.
To stop fire spreading, Irish Building Regulations insist on effective compartmentation, where fire, smoke, and gasses must be kept for as long as possible where they have originated. Our range of Firestopping and Passive Fire Prevention products and systems ensure that structures, cables, pipes, trunking, ductwork, or the voids that they pass through, don’t provide the weak link through which fire can spread.
Fire protection coating for PVC electrical cables
Intumescent fire retardant coating for cables with plastic casing to prolong the functions of the cables in the event of a fire.
Has no damaging effect on working cables and will not cause them to overheat from everyday use and inhibits PVC fumes in the event of a fire. After application, the coating allows some flexibility without cracking, ideal for cables which require regular maintenance.
Fire protection & Intumescent coatings for Timber
A lasting solution for internal and external treated or untreated wooden doors, load bearing floors, panelling, furniture and stairs in heritage or protected structures.
Fire protection & Intumescent coatings for Concrete Soffit in Car Parks, Stadiums, and Buildings
Fire Protection and restoration of Lath & Plaster Ceilings, Cornices & Columns
A fire-resistant coating system, offering fire protection to plasterboard or lath-and-plaster ceilings and walls of various thicknesses. Provides an excellent solution for projects where plasterboard features are in need of fire rating but cannot be replaced, as is often the case in listed or historic buildings. When attacked by fire, the intumescent material protects the integrity and insulation of the coated surface.
Fire protection & Intumescent coatings for Steel & Cast Iron
It can take just a few minutes for unprotected steelwork in a building to attain temperatures of around 550ºC in a fire. At this temperature, steelwork loses its load bearing capacity and the structure is likely to collapse, giving little time for people to evacuate and even less time for the fire service to bring the fire under control.
