Alternative Passive Fire Protection for Soffits

Global Fireproof Solutions and our partner manufacturers are providing a new tested "Alternative Method Intumescent Coating Solution" to meet the building code fire protection requirements for soffits. GFS works closely with local district governments, architects and general contractors to provide the necessary submittal documents and application process in order to receive approval prior to starting the project. These applications will be able to be applied to both new construction and existing construction quickly and easily.

GFS Certified Intumescent Coating Applications for Soffits are applied by Trained and Certified Technicians to a thickness of 45 mils. One of our expert applicators can apply a coat of Intumescent Coating just as easily as a painter could paint. Due to our method of application we are able to treat both old and new construction, and new construction projects can be completed in much less time and with much less impact to other trades compared to traditional methods of achieving proper fire rating.
