Has the fire marshal said you need to treat something with a fire retardant?
BanFire meets the most common requirements looked for by US Fire Marshals, such as NFPA 701 and Life Code 101, for drapes, curtains and other hanging fabrics and decorations. It is also effective on paper and cardboard.
If the fire marshal has pointed out any curtains or other hanging fabric that requires flame retardant, we'll give you everything you need. Not just the fire retardant spray, but the MSDS, Technical Data Sheet, and even a certificate to show who treated the fabric and when - a complete paper trail to cover your next inspection!
RDR Technologies distributes flame retardant chemicals from many manufacturers around the county, so if you are not sure what you need, or if you don't see something you need, give us a call. We'll hook you up.
Fire Retardant Paints & Coatings
There are typically two types of situations for using fire retardant paints and coatings.
- Time-Rated (such as 15 minutes for spray foam insulation, 1 hour for engineered wood i-joists, or 1 to 3 hours for steel)
- Class A or B (such as for panelling, plywood, soffits, drywall, and other non-load-bearing uses)
RDR is quite familiar with the fire codes, and what is required in most situations. We can recommend the products that will meet code, be cost effective, and meet your aesthetic requirements. We define coatings as a liquid that primarily sits on the surface of the substrate, rather than a saturant, which soaks into the wood or fabric. Here are a few options:
- Intumescent Paints - these swell up and form a thick (up to 1") layer of charred material that protects the substrate.
- Intumescent Clear Coats - these are usually polymer-based and can be partially absorbed into the substrate. Can be used on thatch, bamboo, previously painted surfaces, exterior wood, plastic, and many others.
Give us a call and we can tell you not only which product will work best for you, but how much you will need.
