What to Know About Fire Resis­tant Painting

Invest in a Fire Resis­tive & Intu­mes­cent Paint­ing Rela­tion­ship with Kaloutas

It’s no secret that fire can destroy the integri­ty of your com­mer­cial facil­i­ty almost imme­di­ate­ly. This is why Kaloutas rec­om­mends fire resis­tive paint­ing ser­vices. With our reg­u­lar inspec­tions, we will work with you to stop small issues from becom­ing larg­er cat­a­stro­phes where you, your peo­ple, and your build­ing will be in grave dan­ger. Avoid fac­ing lia­bil­i­ty issues and a mas­sive bill if some­thing catch­es on fire in your busi­ness and lit­tle to no down­time when tak­ing the prop­er pre­cau­tions with the expe­ri­enced team at Kaloutas. 

Fire Resis­tive Plans from Kaloutas

Fire­proof­ing with fire resis­tive paints, also called intu­mes­cent coat­ings, solves mul­ti­ple prob­lems that you may not even think about until an issue occurs. For exam­ple, many facil­i­ty own­ers don’t know the impor­tance of pro­tect­ing some­thing as essen­tial to the integri­ty of their build­ing as steel beams, some­thing con­sid­ered already fire­proof. At 1,000 degrees, steel can lose up to 40% of its strength; at 1,500 degrees, steel can lose up to 90% of its strength. Since the aver­age build­ing fire can reach tem­per­a­tures of 1,5002,000 degrees, that is a seri­ous prob­lem for main­tain­ing the struc­tur­al rigid­i­ty and ten­sile strength, and that can lead to collapse.

Fire resis­tive paints slow down the spread of a fire with­in a facil­i­ty and pro­tect its integri­ty. This means you and your staff will have a lot more time to safe­ly and effec­tive­ly exit the build­ing before its integri­ty is com­pro­mised. Adding these intu­mes­cent coat­ings to your build­ing will show your peo­ple that you care about their safe­ty and sig­nif­i­cant­ly reduces the chances of employ­ee injury and down­time if there is a fire. With few­er dam­ages, you will be able to get back up and run­ning with a healthy team of peo­ple, sav­ing you time and labor costs. 

By fire­proof­ing com­po­nents like steel struc­tures, wood, dry­wall, and con­crete, the fire depart­ment is allowed more time to put out the fire so that your build­ing won’t imme­di­ate­ly crum­ble. With less dam­age comes a small­er insur­ance claim, sav­ing you mon­ey and the headache of hav­ing to deal with insur­ance companies. 

And final­ly, it’s essen­tial to stay up to code when run­ning a com­mer­cial facil­i­ty to avoid major lia­bil­i­ty issues. If there are code infrac­tions, you’ll be look­ing at a lot of wast­ed mon­ey in fines. 

Through effec­tive com­mu­ni­ca­tion, exten­sive knowl­edge of mul­ti­ple indus­tries, and because we under­stand your health and safe­ty pro­to­cols, you can rest assured your busi­ness will remain oper­a­tional, clean, safe, and main­tained as long as you’re work­ing with our team.

We Know Fire Resis­tive Paint­ing Services

Fire­proof­ing gets dam­aged all of the time, even in new build­ings. Whether builders and oth­er trades are acci­den­tal­ly chip­ping away at the fire resis­tive paints or an old build­ing is in dire need of restora­tive fire­proof­ing, Kaloutas can help. We will deter­mine the prop­er method and mate­r­i­al for fire­proof patch­ing. This allows con­struc­tion to con­tin­ue and for you to move on with repairs and improve­ments in oth­er areas while stay­ing up to code.

We also under­stand that every build­ing will have dif­fer­ent needs. In mixed-use build­ings, we will deter­mine what the build­ing occu­pan­cy means for fire­proof­ing codes and what actions to take. The team at Kaloutas will under­stand the Fire and Build­ing code require­ments, includ­ing fire-rat­ing, insu­la­tion, and noise reduction/​transmission of your facil­i­ty. We also under­stand that teams must ensure the approach­es to achieve one goal are com­pat­i­ble with the strat­e­gy to achieve anoth­er among the many con­sid­er­a­tions such as space, aes­thet­ics, and per­for­mance. We will ensure all fire resis­tive paints are effec­tive and aes­thet­i­cal­ly pleas­ing so you can move on to your next project and keep your busi­ness running.

Fire Retar­dant & Intu­mes­cent Paint Coatings

When a fire emer­gency occurs, effec­tive fire­proof coat­ings can save lives and pre­vent a great deal of dam­age and loss. At Kaloutas, we take this respon­si­bil­i­ty to heart, mak­ing sure that our fire-resis­tive and intu­mes­cent coat­ings are prop­er­ly installed.

What Are Intu­mes­cent Paint Coatings?

Intu­mes­cent paint coat­ings are fire-retar­dant paints that change state when exposed to flame or exces­sive heat. Though these intu­mes­cent coat­ings appear just like nor­mal paint, and come in a vari­ety of col­ors and sheens, they decom­pose and expand dur­ing a fire, cre­at­ing a thick, spongy foam that slows the spread of fire and heat penetration.

Dur­ing a fire, intu­mes­cent paint will pro­tect struc­tur­al steel, giv­ing those in the build­ing a longer time to escape and fire­fight­ers a longer time to fight the blaze before the sta­bil­i­ty of the struc­ture is com­pro­mised. Fire-retar­dant coat­ings can also be applied to wood, dry­wall, con­crete and CMU walls. 

Kaloutas Offers Fire-Retar­dant Coat­ings for:

  • Man­u­fac­tur­ing Facilities
  • Indus­tri­al Spaces
  • Hos­pi­tals & Nurs­ing Homes
  • Schools & Universities
  • Restau­rants & Hotels
  • Retail & Mixed Use Spaces
  • Apart­ments & Condos
  • Phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal Facilities
  • Indus­tri­al Spaces
  • Ware­hous­ing and Distribution
