LAF’s fire proofing materials and systems are some of the most advanced and cost effective fire safety measures engineered to assist building designers achieve compliance with the prevailing building codes and standards in your country. Passive fire protection systems in buildings are defined as those systems which are installed to passively endure a fire without having any particular reaction to the fire itself. Typically active fire protection refers to Extinguishers, Sprinklers, Smoke Detectors etc, as these normally react in some way in a fire emergency.
LAF’s spray applied fireproofing is used to provide new membrane construction to compartmentalise buildings or in the case of project refurbishment it is used to upgrade many types of existing vertical or horizontal building elements be they made of concrete, timber or masonry construction. These Cementitious coatings are also used in combination with one of LAF’s mechanical reinforcements, QUIKMESH® and TRIMESH®. LAF’s fire proofing materials and systems are Cementitious coatings, meaning that they have as constituents, a mineral component, with excellent thermal properties (in LAF’s case VERMICULITE or PERLITE), all held together by a hydraulic binder. By definition, Cementitious does not imply that the binder is cement based.
LAF’s passive fire protection materials and systems are tested to all major International fire protection standards and Building Codes, and they are manufactured in Australia or Europe to AS/NZS/ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and OSHAS 18001 standards.
