Utilising our Comblast teams, FireProtect can undertake off-site intumescent applications providing you with steelwork ready to be erected with Intumescent and top coats already applied if required. This saves you programme time, H&S and access costs. We also have a mobile team that follow the installation of the steel to undertake touch ups and welding remedial work.
