Fireproofing spray is typically applied to steel structural members such as beams, columns, and steel floor decks. It is delivered as a dry powder then mixed with water at the worksite. The spray can be applied wet or dry in coatings of desired thickness. 

The thickness of fireproofing depends on the hour rating (length of fireproofing timing), size of steel member, and type of fireproofing. It can vary from ⅜” to over 2”.

Monokote Fireproofing

Monokote is a fireproofing material backed with global reputation, it is a life-saving product designed to reduce the rate of temperature rise in steel or concrete in the event of a fire, prolonging structural integrity in the elements. 

Monokote Fireproofing is used in office buildings, schools, hospitals, warehouses and other large buildings. Resembling wet cement, Monokote fireproof spray is applied throughout a building’s interior in order to help prevent structural failure during high temperature blazes. Not only does this help prevent a building from collapsing, but it will give the occupants of the building more time to escape in the event of a fire. This benefit is especially important in high rise buildings and other high occupancy structures where people can become trapped inside if the correct precautions have not been taken. 

Monokote’s cementitious fireproofing offers many significant advantages to the architect, owner, applicator and building occupant. These include:

  • Proven in-place performance
  • Low in-place cost
  • Fast, efficient application
  • UL fire tested and factory inspected
  • Building Code compliant (ICBO, SBCCI, BOCA, ICC)

Monokote Fireproofing is a cementitious spray-applied material, developed by Grace Construction Products to provide high fire resistance with fast, reliable application and low in-place cost. Monokote is easily spray-applied directly to steel, concrete and other substrates requiring fire protection. It is a single component, mill-mixed plaster which requires only the addition of water on the job site to form a consistent, pumpable slurry.

HiBAR Spray-Applied Fire-Resistive Material (SFRM):

HiBAR is a ULC listed, spray applied semi cementitious mineral fiber insulation, for fire rating structural steel. HiBAR also has thermal and acoustical properties. It can be spray applied over rigid structural substrates and exterior of partition walls. It provides acoustical treatment for ceilings and walls in noisy production areas or large rooms such as gymnasiums or swimming pools where both sound absorption and aesthetic enhancement is desired. Condensation control is also provided on exposed structural components that are in contact with cold exterior surfaces.

Basic Uses

  • Spray-applied fireproofing for use over rigid structural substrates such as open web steel joists, beams, columns, floor/ceiling assemblies and exterior or partition wall units.
  • Thermal insulation for prefabricated metal buildings, corrugated metal roof assemblies, underside of concrete slabs and masonry or metal wall assemblies.
  • Spray-applied acoustical treatment for ceilings and upper walls in noisy production areas or in large rooms such as gymnasiums or swimming pools where both sound absorption and aesthetic enhancement is desired.
  • Spray-applied treatment to provide condensation control on exposed structural components that are in contact with cold exterior surfaces.

Learn About Our Fireproof Insulation Rebates

Great news for homeowners looking to upgrade the energy efficiency of their home! There are two major rebate/grant programs available to homeowners in BC: both the federal Canada Greener Homes grant program and the provincial CleanBC Better Homes rebate program.

Additionally, for households that qualify, the CleanBC program also offers an Income Qualified Program (IQP) that can cover 60% or 95% of your upgrade.

Your Alpine estimator can provide you with an idea of what you may qualify for in terms of a rebate, once they have conducted their inspection and prepared your quote. As it is the responsibility of the homeowner to apply for the grant, it is important that homeowners read and understand the program and its requirements.
