Structural Steel Protection for Modular Construction

Structural Steel Protection for Modular Construction

During a fire event, steel loses its loadbearing capacity at a temperature in excess of 550°C. In light of this, structural steel protection needs to be specified to preserve the stability of the building during a fire. There are several common steel protection methods, including:

  • vermiculite spray
  • intumescent coatings
  • board encasement systems
