Protecting national infrastructure, private buildings or industrial facilities from accidental and/or intentional fire threats is a broad and challenging problem for the design and fire response community. Over the years several active and passive systems have been generated to achieve acceptable fire protection – each with their own limitations.
More recently a new challenge has been recognized in the need to protect bridge cables from fire concerns. This newly identified problem presented the fire protection community with two new compounding challenges – a harsh environment for a protection system to operate and a location with limited access.
DYMAT® has conducted an extensive R&D program and has developed a new product – DYMAT® FIREWRAPTM – the Fire Protection System (FPS) (*) – as an answer to the above challenging problems. DYMAT® FIREWRAPTM FPS is a composite product of several materials, taken from varies industries, optimized to achieve superior fire protection with long-term durability performance in harsh environments. Developed to withstand wind, rain, sleet, snow, and cyclic temperatures and still perform in a fire, the FIREWRAPTM Fire Protection System, while originally developed for the bridge industry, has wide applications where fire protection is needed and required to perform in aggressive environments.
The DYMAT® FIREWRAPTM FPS provides superior fire protection and excellent long-term durability through the careful selection of component materials. The final product uses no intumescent materials or spray vermiculites.
(*) The DYMAT® FIREWRAPTM Fire Protection System (FPS), is patent issued in the USA and many other countries.
