Understanding steel structure ‘limiting temperatures’ to minimize fire safety risk

The temperature of a building’s steel structure must be kept below certain limits to guarantee safety during a fire. Default ‘limiting temperatures’ are often adopted but misunderstood. Our expert explains what they are and why any deviation can be extremely dangerous. We’ll also cover how to calculate intumescent Passive Fire Protection coating thickness, and how this can save your project significant time and money. Join our webinar ‘Fire Engineering Fundamentals’.

How to make the best PFP choices – an expert’s advice

It’s crucial you understand how intumescent PFP coatings are affected by other design elements. For example, do you know how much space is needed for coating expansion? How slab decking affects coating thickness? Do you need to allow for coat backs? With insight into these factors and more, you can prevent project issues, delays, and related costs. Our upcoming webinar ‘Design considerations for PFP’ covers everything you need to know.
