Products

Promat offers a full range of products for passive fire protection.

Boards

The world's leading producer of calcium silicate based on PROMAXON® (patented technology), Promat produces one of the most complete and efficient ranges of boards on the market. The manufacturing process and the formulation change according to the factories in order to produce plates adapted to each market and each application.

All Promat boards combine a number of features that set them apart from other building materials:

  • Non-combustible and very fire resistant
  • Thermal insulator thanks to its endothermic reaction
  • Resistant to humidity and impact
  • Stability over time
  • Easy installation
  • Respect for the health of installers and users

 

Spray Coatings

Promat Fire Sprays are designed to protect structural steel, concrete and also steel air ducts against fire. They are supplied as a powder, which is then mixed with water to produce a pumpable mixture. This is then pumped through a hose, mixed with compressed air at the nozzle so that it can be applied or sprayed on to the substrate that is being protected. 

Promat have both plaster and cement based firesprays and the selection of the product to be used will be based on a number of criteria such as environment, substrate and type of protection required. 

Intumescent Paints

Intumescent paints are primarily designed for the protection of structural steel from fire. The products works by expanding when heated to form an insulating char around the substrate being protected. In ambient conditions the thin coating allows for the steel structures to maintain their usual form rather than being boxed in with a board or covered with fire spray.

Fire Stopping

Promat offers a wide range of firestopping products for the protections of openings and service penetrations in fire resistant elements both horizontally or vertically.

These products include fire collars, fire resistant sealant, mortars and batts. We also have a number of solutions for the wrapping or protection of cable and metal pipe services.

Adhesives & Finishing

In order to ensure the performance of its systems, Promat offers a wide range of glue and coating which, combined with the range of Promat sheets, guarantee the fire resistance and durability performance of the systems.

Systems

Promat offers a full range of systems for passive fire protection.

Structural Protection

Steel loses its loadbearing capacity at a temperature in excess of 550°C during a fire; therefore structural steel protection (e.g. with board, paint, spray etc) is required to preserve the stability of the building structure in the event of fire. All Promat products and systems have been tested at nationally accredited laboratories around the world to a variety of standards, e.g. BS 476: Part 21, AS 1530: Part 4, DIN 4102, ASTM E119 and EN 13381-4.

Compartmentation

Promat offers a full range of board and panel fire protection and thermal upgrade solutions tested and assessed for a variety of ceiling, floor and roof applications to meet the demands of the modern construction environment.

Fire Stopping

The fundamental premise of modern fire protection is based on the principles of compartmentation. Every building is designed into several fireproof compartments, to prevent or slow the spread of fire and smoke from one compartment to another. Essential building services — water pipes and electrical cables, for example - penetrate compartment walls and ceilings. These have the potential to seriously risk the integrity of the fire compartment, unless special and proven fire stopping systems are employed. Promat fire stopping systems restore the fire compartment to its original levels of fire performance.

Promat provides a number of integrated and effective fire stopping solutions, and these include the successful and easy to install PROMASTOP® and PROMASEAL® systems:

  • fire stopping sealants
  • intumescent fire stopping sealants
  • fire stopping silicone
  • water based coatings
  • fire stopping collars for plastic and metal pipes
  • fire stopping expanding wraps
  • permanently elastic intumescent bricks and plugs
  • fire stopping graphite-based pillows
  • fire stopping mortars
  • intumescent seals and sealing systems

Ventilation & Smoke Extraction

Fire protection requirements for ventilation ducts are directly related to their design function, the nature and behaviour of the fire and the construction materials that fuel the fire load. The fire resistance performance of the ventilation duct itself also plays a critical role. It is possible to prevent fire spread from one fire compartment (e.g. between floors) to another, along stairways and general access corridors only if all building materials and structural elements share a common fire classification and fire resistance rating. Typical steel sheet ducts fail to meet internationally accepted fire protection requirements. They heat and deform rapidly from the effects of fire. In certain circumstances they even accelerate the spread of flame and smoke.

Ventilation ducts up to 120 minutes fire resistance

Sheet steel ducts from an independent manufacturer can be cladded with PROMATECT® fire protection boards or the duct can be fabricated entirely from PROMATECT® fire protection boards.

When existing steel sheet ducts are cladded, for example, with PROMATECT® fire protection boards it is necessary to satisfy additional fire protection requirements for change in use status.

Ventilation ducts are tested according to EN 1366-1 and classified according to EN 13501-3. The classification is completed by ‘(i → o)’, ‘(o → i)’, or ‘(i ↔ o)’ to indicate whether the element has been tested and fulfils the requirements from the inside or outside only or both. Promat solutions in both cases (with or without steel ducts) fulfil the requirements from both sides ‘(i ↔ o)’.

A more economical solution, however, is achieved by specifying and installing tested and proven PROMATECT® ventilation ducts from Promat, the world leader in professional fire science technologies.

 

Heat and smoke control ducts up to 120 minutes fire resistance

The smoke extraction lines are tested automatically with fire load from both sides.Basically two heat and smoke control ducts can be distinguished:

  • single compartment smoke control ducts, which can be used in one fire section only and are tested according to EN 1366-9 and classified according to EN 13501-4
  • multi compartment fire resistant smoke control ducts, which can be used in any number of fire sections and are tested according to EN 1366-8 and classified according to EN 13501-4

 

Promat offers solutions without steel ducts for both systems up to 120 minutes fabricated with PROMATECT® fire protection boards.
