About us

A couple of minutes. That’s the difference between a serious accident and a catastrophe. These minutes are what drive us.
By preventing fire from starting or spreading, our fire protection systems save lives and items of value and are incredibly simple to install.

With a complete range of products for the protection of steel and timber structures we are proud to bring our New Zealand customers products from Scandinavia’s leading manufacturer in this field.

We are part of the Living Future Declare Status program, the only intumescent products supplier in New Zealand involved in this program.

A DECLARE LABEL ANSWERS THREE QUESTIONS:
1. Where does a product come from?
2. What is it made of?
3. Where does it go at the end of its life?

Declare is a transparency platform and product database that is changing the materials marketplace.

Our products are manufactured in Sweden under ISO14001, ISO9001 and a broad range of European green building certification schemes.
