Finding a realistic solution that would retain the existing cladding whilst minimising both costs and inconvenience to the complex’s tenants.
The team at FireScope Fire Services spray-applied the Fireshell F1E to the external cladding and top-coated the system with an approved system to meet the client’s colour and finish requirements.
The existing timber cladding was retained whilst offering a cost-effective alternative to replacing the cladding with non-combustible materials. The surfaces treated with the Fireshell F1E provided an effective solution to meeting both the Fire performance requirements and reducing costs and disruption for the clients.
Fireshell® F1E is an exterior, waterborne, non-hazardous, self-priming, flexible intumescent coating.
It provides an ignition and flame spread barrier on external combustible surfaces. Achieves AS3959 bushfire resting timber compliance including accelerated weathering compliance for softwoods BAL12.5, BAL19 & BAL29. ISO 5660 compliant for external timber cladding and a range of risk reduction solutions for external combustible surfaces.
