Fire is very important element to maintain the quality of human life, but sometimes it may also pose certain huge threats if not dispensed appropriately. Fire has the power to destroy anything if given enough time therefore it is utmost essential to take necessary measure to prevent such situation from happening.
Fireproofing, a passive fire protection measure, refers to the act making materials or structure more resistant to fire or to those materials themselves or the act of applying such materials. Applying a certifications listed fireproofing system to certain structures allows these to have a fire – resistance rating. The term fireproof does not necessarily mean that an item cannot ever burn, it relates to measured performance under specific conditions of testing and evaluation. Fireproofing does not allow treated items to be entirely unaffected by any fire, as conventional materials are not immune to the effects of fire at a sufficient intensity and or duration.
In this regard, JASCON Engineering has been playing an important role in Qatar by providing system through fireproofing. We have helped to safeguard hugs capital investments in commercial buildings and houses and this has effectively helped to maintain the quality of life for the whole community.
Fireproofing is one of the major concerns of JASCON Engineering for the Qatar market. Our professional way of marketing, well- equipped and systemized work handing, quality control system raised our value in the market.
Jascon specializes in the following Fireproofing solutions :
Vermiduct is a complete fireproofing solution for air handling duct systems. It is especially developed to provide up to 4 hours fire resistance level/ period to : ducting (constructed in steel & plastics ) fan enclosures, dampers, access panels, plenums, electrical & date wall penetrations, cable trays & separating construction. Vermiduct has been thoroughly tested at commonwealth scientific industrial research organization (CSIRO) in Australia, to comply with the most stringent international standard requirements. It fully meets and exceeds the conditions for fire inside and outside air handling systems across structure stability, integrity and the insulation requirements for up to 4 hours. Factory blended from gypsum and vermiculite base products. Vermiduct is manufactured to exacting standards to ensure sustainable quality, durability and performance in service. It is a quick and easy to install by spray and highly and highly cost effective solution for the fire rating of air handling systems.
Cementitious or wet mix fireproofing is mixed with water and pumped under pressure through hoses to a nozzle where air is introduced. The wet slurry is then broadcast of products onto structural steel surfaces. The inherent fire resistive mechanism of products in the release of water in the form of steam when exposed to elevated temperatures. These products are available in standard, medium and high density to use indoors and on building exteriors.
Intumescent fireproofing differs from cementitious and mineral fiber fireproofing in that its paint like appearance allows it to be left permanently exposed creating a dramatic architectural affect. Applied like paints and coatings with airless spray equipment, intumescent fireproofing actually burns when exposed to fire, forming a layer of char that ultimately insulates the structural steel from further temperature rise. Vendors of intumescent fireproofing who we have partnered with include Jotun Manufacturing, Isolatke International & Carboline co.
Fireproofing Rigid Board:
Rigid board fire protection is not a spray- applied product, but rather compressed mineral fiber boards installed mechanically onto structural steel surface. These products are intended for use to solve unique installation challenges posed by weather conditions during construction, exiting occupancy conditions such as M/s. Lsolatak International & M/s. Albi Manufacturing to provide quality rigid board fireproofing.
