What is Structural Fire Design?

AkzoNobel's in-house professionally licenced Structural Fire Design team can justify reductions in product thickness and volumes while maintaining the regulatory fire resistance requirements on a project without affecting the design and in many cases yielding programme gains. This is a complimentary service for our clients that sits hand in hand with our intumescent coatings. It is currently being actively carried out on projects across the UK, mainland Europe, the Middle East, South-East Asia and Australasia.

In addition to determining steel temperatures, the Structural Fire Design team can undertake heat transfer assessments and ad-hoc structural assessments to provide project and client solutions as part of a unique service that assists constructability and application issues.
