Sydney Harbour Bridge – Risk reduction and asset protection solution


Fire Performance: Risk reduction solution

  • As part of a risk reduction upgrade by Sydney Trains on the Sydney Harbour Bridge, exposed timbers were required to be coated with a exterior grade water based fire retardant coating to reduce chance of ignition and flame spread.
  •  The FIRESHELL F1E was utilised in an ongoing application to large areas of exposed timber on the rail side of the bridge.
  •  The simple 1 part water based LOW VOC application meant that works could be carried out easily and in compliance with the stringent guidelines for works on the bridge. The brown colour was utilised to achieve a natural thin film long lasting system that is in keeping with the heritage nature of the bridge.
