Here at Fireshield®, we are proud to be the only intumescent coating manufacturer in New Zealand and Australia to have Declare Status and be Red List Free with our products:
- Steel 1001
- Steel 1002
Declare and Red List Free is run by the Living Future organisation based in Europe.
A Declare label for a product answers these 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 in the building industry.
Our products are manufactured in Sweden under ISO14001, ISO9001 and a broad range of European green building certification schemes.
RED LIST FREE
Some of our intumescent products meet the stringent guidelines for the Red List Free program run by the International Living Futures Institute.
The Red List contains the worst in class materials prevalent in the building industry.
The commonly-used chemicals on the Red List are:
- Polluting the environment
- Bio-accumulating up the food chain until they reach toxic concentrations
- Harming construction and factory workers
