Those responsible for fire safety in business and other non domestic premises include include employers, owners, landlords and other parties in control of the premises. The government guide for making premises safe from fire outlines their responsibilities, such as fire hazard prevention and fire drills. By using fire resistant coatings (such as intumescent paint) you can provide a passive fire protection system which is ready to act the moment a fire breaks out.  

Intumescent paint is designed to expand when exposed to high levels of heat, giving up to 240 minutes of fire protection and reducing the risk of fire spreading and heat damage.

Fire prevention with intumescent paint London

Intumescent paints are a coating layer that goes on like paint, but when exposed to extreme heat they swell, expanding to up to 50 times their original size. They form a foam-like solid called char, which does not conduct heat and burns very, very slowly. In this way they insulate the surface they coat from the flames, and prevent the flames from spreading.

Intumescent paints protect people and firefighters from the threat of building collapse by protecting the substrate from flames, while also increasing evacuation time.

Fire resistant coatings like intumescent paints are becoming more and more prevalent, and with good reason. They save lives.
