For Steel Fireproofing, specifying an optimal mix of Vermiculite, Intumescent and Fire Board fireproofing products for various areas within the building is the ideal way to achieve the best economical fireproofing solution.
AgniJeet assists in identifying these areas while ensuring that the guarantee parameters are not compromised by any manufacturer.
Many times, it has been observed that the correct fireproofing specifications and related calculations are not provided along with the tender. Hence, the winning fabricator quite often claim fireproofing as an “additional item” that is charged extra.
AgniJeet assists in drafting project specific fireproofing specification so that all bidders are on the same platform and there are no budgetary surprises.
Thickness of steel fireproofing depends upon a matrix of parameters like the steel section details, exposure to fire, environmental conditions, usage in the building, etc.
A little tweaking of the steel design could help in much cost saving of the steel fireproofing. AgniJeet works closely with the architects and structural engineers to synergize this.
There are many Steel fireproofing codes that the global fireproofing industry follows; like: BS 473, UL 263 /1709, Euro Codes, ASTM E119, GB 8624, etc. All of them are not the same and accordingly the product specifications also vary.
So, which code should you be using in your project? Which one gives you the best technical and economical fit? AgniJeet is here to help!
AgniJeet not only helps with Tender Preparation, Bid Analysis and Vendor Selection, but also with unbiased Third Party Inspections (TPI) based on the appropriate Building Fire Codes and approved Application Methodology of the selected manufacturer.
Our TPI services include Fireproofing Thickness Testing, Density Testing, Adhesion Testing, etc.
While AgniJeet will not be directly involved with getting you the Fire NOC, we assist in the preparation of all the required documentation related with fireproofing and firestopping works carried out in the building; including the fire rating certificates and warrantees.
As Socrates famously said: “understanding a question is half the answer.”
Passive Fire Protection helps you save lives and property.
We are committed to provide guidance and leadership within the discipline of firestopping & fireproofing by adopting the best practices as per building codes and verification of installation quality in the field.
Also known as Cementitious or Vermiculite FireproofingSpray protection is extensively used across the world, mostly owning to it being the cheapest method for Steel Fire Protection. It has the advantage that it can be used to cover complex shapes and details and also that costs do not increase significantly with increases in protection thickness. This is because much of the cost of application is in the labour and equipment and a minority is in the cost of the material. Some materials can also be used in external and hydrocarbon fire applications.
This is only a helping guideline.
