45+ years track record

With our 45+ years of experience, we know structural steel is the bones of a dynamic unit with unique characteristics and challenges. Steel comes in all shapes, sizes and weights, dictating how a section will perform, individually and collectively, in a fire scenario. Have you considered looking beyond the typical one size fits all approach to fire protection? It leaves some sections under protected leading to premature failure. Overprotected sections lead to unnecessary project over runs. Chartek offers a full array of prescriptive multi-sectional listings, performance based fire protection options and advanced fire modeling solutions to custom design your next project.

Chartek products have provided anti-corrosive and aesthetic fire protection for steel structures in markets including infrastructure, power, oil and gas, chemical, mining and bridges, in environments as diverse as the North Sea, the Tropics and Antarctica.
