Every year, building fires are responsible for several tragedies. Even if your building abides and adheres to all the necessary fire safety regulations, it is not guaranteed to stop a fire from breaking out. Therefore, we must take all the necessary precautions to reduce the chances of a building fire from happening. With the help of fireproof painting, it can significantly reduce the chances of a fire breaking out.
Fireproof painting acts as a protective layer or a barrier that slows down the speed and damage caused by a fire in a house or a building. When it reaches soaring temperatures, it releases gasses which slow down the spread of fire. Additionally, the layer of paint will protect the layer applied to a particular substrate.

Below mentioned are the benefits of fireproof painting for commercial and residential buildings:
One of the fire’s dangerous properties is that it continues to spread, and with the help of a fire-retardant paint, it can stop it from happening. The layer of paint will emit gasses that prohibit fire and will form a layer of char that will slow down the damage and spread. If the paint used only forms a char layer and protects what is underneath, it is known as intumescent paint. However, if the paint releases a flame-weakening gas when it reaches a certain temperature would be classified as fire-retardent.
As mentioned above, when the wall comes in contact with high temperatures, it will form a layer of char to protect the building materials. The estimated time the protection can last is anywhere between 30 – 120 minutes. However, it depends on the intensity of the fire and the fireproof paint in use.
This is an important point to note. If you fail to install a fire alarm system or a modern fire alarm system, it can significantly damage your business and your reputation. It can be a PR nightmare, and it could take years to bounce back from this. The impact sometimes can be irreparable, and the guilt of the lives you could have protected will never fade away. Not to sound too morbid, but there is no excuse when it comes to fire prevention and safety. As a business owner, you need to ensure that your fire alarm is up to code and working properly in the event a fire breaks out. Otherwise, the ramifications can be disastrous.
Most building materials such as softwood, hardwood, fibrewoods, chipboards, and concrete, including all the metallic parts, can be coated with fireproof painting for much better protection, including building safety.
You do not have to compromise with décor when you paint your building walls with fireproof paint. There is a wide range of finishes to complement the interior and exterior design elements. Similar to regular paint, it is more than likely that you will be able to get a finish in silk, gloss, matt, metallic and clear.
Don’t worry, it is perfectly fine to paint over old non-retardent paint with a new coat of flame-retardant paint. You can rest assured; that it will not affect your new paint’s fire insulation properties in any shape or form. However, it is imperative to note that the new layers are thick enough to get the job done if needed.
Even though fireproof paints are extremely effective in slowing down the spread and damage caused by fire, they can only do it for a limited time, and the protection offered will not be as effective post that. Needless today, the few additional minutes that fire-proof painting provide is the difference between life and death in the event a fire breaks out.
