Fire Solutions for Old or New Construction

Our Certified Applications have the ability to meet and exceed the standards for upgrading unrated wood assembles to Fire Retardant Treated Rated (ASTM 2768 ASTM E84 30 min Extended) or 1-hour rated (ASTM E119) assemblies.

For existing and new construction, GFS Certified Intumescent and Fire-Retardant Applications can be used on multiple wood floor/ceiling configurations to achieve a higher fire rating.

Wall, Floor and Ceiling Fire Protection

The Intumescent and Fire Retardant Solutions that we apply have a neutral PH and are not harmful to copper or steel piping, PVC, CPVC, metal hangars or strapping. Our Fire Retardant has a clear finish or can be tinted upon request, and our Intumescent Coating has an attractive, matte white finish and has an optional top-coat that we can apply if the material is to be painted over.
