Passive Fireproofing - External Application
Enercote® is a portland cement product that has been specifically developed to provide a hard wearing surface for use in plant rooms and other areas usually accessible to maintenance personnel, but at the same time offers excellent thermal insulation coupled with cost effective fire protection.
Testing of the Enercote® compound has been carried out at the CSIRO Fire Testing Laboratories in accordance with Australian Standards AS 1530 (1990) Part 4: Methods for fire tests on building materials, components and structures.
Enercote® is spray applied and can provide up to and inclusive two (2) hours fire resistance level to elements of building and civil construction in interior as well as exterior applications.
Enercote® is manufactured under factory controlled conditions to ISO 9001-2008; ISO 14001 and OSHAS 18001 Quality Standards. It is delivered to site in ‘batch’ form, ready to be mixed to the required consistency before application.
Health and Safety
Enercote® contains no asbestos and presents no known health hazard before, during or after application. Normal precautions relevant to the handling of cement products apply.
Enercote® has no long-term environmental effects on air, water or land. Both the product and the bag may be recycled or disposed of as landfill. When used as standalone or combined with Trimesh® to provide acoustic and fire protective engineering solutions, Enercote® may positively influence any ‘Green’ rating system (i.e. LEEDs) from 36 percent to 51 percent.
