STEEL PROTECTION

Structural steel members often require fire protection to prevent collapse in the event of a fire. Under high heat, the material properties of the steel change, making collapse likely. To avoid this, the members can be clad in COREX to provide a fully compliant and fire tested thermal insulation barrier.

Fast and Easy Passive Fire Stopping for Steel Protection

Structural steel members often require fire protection to prevent collapse in the event of a fire. Under high heat, the material properties of the steel change, making collapse likely. To avoid this, the members can be clad in Trafalgar COREX or FyreBOARD Maxilite to provide a fully compliant and fire tested thermal insulation barrier. Both products are high-performance fire-rated board designed to protect structural steel members with Regression data as per NCC & AS4100.

Corex has high impact resistance, is suitable for exposed weather conditions. Maxilite is good for higher 4 hour FRL’s, and is suitable for other applications as well such as service penetrations and fire rated bulkheads.

We recommend a best practice of protecting secondary members to a length of 450mm away from the primary
protected member, but this could be specified differently in the building design.

Yes, 4 hour protection is available with FyreBOARD Maxilite.

Trafalgar COREX is an ideal product for this application, with no additional protection required for weather.

Trafalgar COREX has high-impact resistance, and fix’s firmly with staples, this system is extremely robust for busy areas.
