FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Pressnews.biz (Press Release) Feb 16, 2014 -- There are hardly any disasters that can compare to the destructive power of a fire breakout. For that reason it is imperative that every commercial or residential structure is protected by complex fire prevention methods and technologies to ensure the safety of civilians and to minimize property damage. There are several means of enforcing fire safety guidelines through both active and passive structures. However, in the post 9-11 era more and more contractors, developers and property owners choose the reliable and versatile properties of Intumescent Paint. In most scenarios this light weight and flexible material can make the difference in the number of casualties that occur during the evacuation of burning structures by cutting of the oxygen supply that fuels the blaze. Nullifire is also very important in reducing the amount of deterioration to the structural qualities of a building that result from heat and smoke exposure.



The first enforcer in the event of a fire hazard is a complex system that includes smoke detectors, sprinklers and alarms. This active part of containing the effects of a fire disaster serves first and foremost as a mean of signaling to civilians the presence of danger and the beginning of evacuation. The passive component of protection against flames in the form of Intumescent Paint is put in place to slow down the spreading of smoke and fire and to protect the structural properties of either steel or wood beams and joints. Nullifire is obtained through a chemical process that allows the material to expand when exposed to high temperatures. As it swells Intumescent Paint loses density and seals of gaps and spaces around structural elements that could conduct the flames to other areas of the burning building.



Contractors prefer to use Intumescent Paint as it is a light weight and cost effective material, not to mention environmentally friendly. Even if it is the result of a chemical process, Nullifire is water based and therefore reduces the release of harmful substances into the environment. For the purpose of conserving space and reducing the added weight strain of fire insulation on the structure the application of Nullifire on steel and wood only requires a few thin coats. Another advantage of Intumescent Paint is that it doesn’t produce dust residue and that makes it less hazardous for the contractors that are in charge of operating it. Although Nullifire requires constant quality control management and it may not be compatible with certain brands of primer the application time is far reduced than in the case of boarding methods.



Believe it or not, Intumescent Paint also contributes to the safety of fire marshals during search and rescue operations. In the event of a fire there is a real chance of structural collapse and that can also result in casualties among firefighters in charge of containing the flames. Before they can overcome the cause of the blaze and safely remove all civilians from the building, Nullifire provides powerful insulation to prevent the overheating of steel structures that could buckle or break under the stress.

In order to reduce property damage and extend the time available for evacuation in the event of a fire contractors rely on Intumescent Paint http://www.fstservices.co.uk for protection of structural elements. Nullifire http://www.fstservices.co.uk is a light weight and versatile material that can provide reliable insulation for steel and wood constructions.
