Keep your Facility Safe from Fire with the Best Fire Protection Boards from Bay City

The safety of your facility is essential to the function of your business. As such, when constructing or updating commercial and industrial structures, considerations must be made for various fire protection systems. And when it comes to practical, long-lasting passive fire protection, facility managers count on the ability of fire protection boards. Thankfully, finding and installing fire protection boards is simple with assistance from Bay City Inc.

What are Fire Protection Boards?

Fire protection boards provide contractors with another method of passive fireproofing, predominantly composed of mineral fiber and special fire-retardant additives. These boards are known for their exceptional stability, ease of installation, and impressive fire performance, capable of up to 4 hours of fire resistance. Fire protection boards find widespread application in various settings, including industrial, commercial, and public areas, significantly enhancing the safety and resilience of these structures.

Why Choose Fire Protection Boards?

  • Alternative to Spray Fireproofing – Although sprays and coatings for fireproofing are incredibly effective, fire protection boards are just as valuable! In fact, fire protection boards prove to be more advantageous when spray application is impractical due to space constraints or poor installation conditions.
  • Simple Installation – There’s little setup required to install fireproofing boards. Unlike cementitious or intumescent fireproofing, where a surface must be prepared before applying a spray or coating, fireproofing boards are ready as is for easier on-the-job installation.
  • Complete Encasement – Besides protecting a building’s walls, ceilings and structural steel, fireproofing boards can protect your facility from internal dangers. Energy storage devices, batteries, servers, and electrical systems can malfunction and cause a fire, which can quickly grow if not contained. However, if these systems are enclosed using fireproofing boards, the fire can’t spread.

What is a Fire Protection Board Made From?

  • Mineral Fiber – Manufactured from mineral fibers, primary compressed rock wool, these boards provide excellent fire resistance and sound insulation. The mineral fibers used in production are non-combustible, contributing to the board’s fireproof capabilities. Also, these boards are lightweight and easy to install, making them a popular choice for a broad range of fire protection applications.
