Yes, FIRESHIELD TimberClear1FR and TimberWhite2FR meet Fire Class B-s1 d0, according to EN 13501-1:2010. This is the equivalent to New Zealand Building Code Group 1-S. Contact Fireshield for minimum timber lining requirements or see our Technical Data Sheets.
FIRESHIELD products can be used to fire rate interior timber linings and structural steel for differing time frames and Group surface ratings, for example:
- TimberClear1FR and TimberWhite2FRprovides up to Group 1-S rating to interior timber wall and ceiling linings.
- ArchitecturalWhite4FR fire rates structural steel members for up to 90mins.
There are many other uses for FIRESHIELD products. Please contact us or call 0800 347 734 us to see if we can help with your project specific requirements.
FIRESHIELD coatings are required to be signed off and a PS3 issued upon completion of the application. Because of this, only Accredited Applicators can apply FIRESHIELD coatings. To apply to an Accredited Applicator is a simple process, so please contact us. In some cases, training can be completed on the job to save you time and money.
For Group 1-S on internal timber surfaces, you can typically apply one coat of the intumescent basecoat with an airless spray gun. This can vary depending on the composition and structure of the substrate, so please contact us if you are unsure.
Application of ArchitecturalWhite2FR steel coating is dependant on the steel member section/shape, the critical temperature of the section being coated and the fire rating required. We use a series of calculations from our loading tables to determine the WFT (wet film thickness) and DFT (Dry film thickness).
ArchitecturalWhite is designed as a decorative intumescent coating which is thinner than many other products available meaning a higher quality, smooth, fibre free finish, please contact us for more information and clarification for any project specific queries.
Because of the many different applications and uses for each FIRESHIELD product, the amount of paint required varies from project to project.
Using TimberClear1FR or TimberWhite2FR to achieve a Group 1-S rating on timber linings, theoretically requires 300gm/m². The application of ArchitecturalWhite4FR on structural steel is dependant on our loading tables and calculations, we will calculate the quantities for you free of charge.
Feel free to send us your documentation and we will happily work out the quantity you require.
Yes, Fireshield TimberClear and TimberWhite can be used on solid timbers 9mm thick and greater and with a minimum density of 380 kg/m³. Just ask your timber supplier for the density of your timber substrate if you’re unsure.
It is possible to apply FIRESHIELD products on top of water-based stains that do not contain adhesives or binders. Adhesives will interfere with the intumescent properties of FIRESHIELD. Please contact us for tested stain products.
FIRESHIELD TimberClear1FR must always be sealed with our Timberclear1FR TOPcoat for durability and optimum performance of this technical system.
For some internal applications, TimberWhite2FR and ArchitecturalWhite4FR can be installed without a top coat, but please contact us for tested top coats if one is required to protect the intumescent from condensation, moisture or damage.
FIRESHIELD TimberWhite2FR and ArchitecturalWhite4FR are non-toxic, halogen free, water-based, Red List Free and carry the distinguished Declare label for the living planet scheme.
Fireshield TimberClear1FR intumescent coating is a waterborne basecoat, the Timberclear1FR TOPcoat is applied at .06mm wet film thickness and contains white spirt (VOC) that evaporates entirely during application. The resulting dry system retains virtually NO VOC at all, and is also completely halogen free.
