Sydney Trains (TfNSW) has been using Fireshell F1E on our large scale infrastructure projects since 2014. Fireshell F1E has proven to be the optimal solution for the Sydney Harbour Bridge deck upgrade project. It satisfies our primary purpose of providing unparalleled fire resistive properties to our historic timber decking whilst also being easy to work with. The paint we first applied six years ago has been exposed to the elements up to today and still maintains its integrity.

Our recent scope asked for an exterior intumescent coating over the ‘tongue-In-groove wall, as it was situated in a bush-fire zone. The most suited system for this application we found was the Fireshell F1E coating from EXFIRE. They delivered the material on time and provided excellent after sale service to make sure we got the application up and running quickly. We applied the Fireshell F1E, with no problems whatsoever. Being a water-based product, it was so easy to work with the project was completed on-time and met all requirements from the client.

In our experience Fireshell F1E is the only exterior grade intumescent coating system we can recommend with absolute confidence to our clients. FIRESHELL F1E has proven on many occasions to be the only true exterior water based intumescent for long term external exposure on timber. Ideally suited for bridges, utility poles and exposed timber structures.
