Concrete passive fire protection is applied by Barrier where there is a high risk of a structure suffering a major impact – for instance, a column in a car park.
Concrete grouting is also used to fill in any gaps – i.e. where the column joins its base.
Although the use of concrete precedes the development of epoxy products, it is still widely used – for example during the company’s work on the Exxon Rotterdam Advanced Hydrocracker Project.
Barrier’s fire-proofers are also able to offer additional services on site, such as pumping specialist mastics into gaps in concrete on facility roadways and pathways.
