Barrier Fire Protection offers this highly-specialised service which provides both the appropriate level of fire-proofing and, for example where an architectural finish is required, complements the visual appearance of the structure through the design and manufacture of a bespoke shape (a panel, half-shell, etc.)
Our offsite manufacturing
As well as the need for the system to blend in with its surroundings, it also provides a highly practical solution to the problems of time and space. Structures are surveyed on site and design and manufacture takes place in Wallsend.
Offsite manufacture means there is no requirement for on-site spraying, which would disrupt the customer’s business. In addition, space around a column – for instance – is often extremely limited for the needs of an application crew.
Fire proof panels on offshore structures
The system is also extensively used on pipework on offshore structures. This might be during an upgrade where room on an operational platform might be limited.
Examples of the company’s work can be seen in two of London’s most iconic buildings: Waterloo Station and the Leadenhall Building, commonly known as the Cheesegrater.
