Fire resistance of concrete

Concrete is a building material that offers a high level of protection and fire safety: it is non-flammable, prevents the spread of fire, does not produce any smoke or toxic gases and does not increase the fire load. By itself, it provides very good fire-retardant properties. However, in the case of some building structures, it is necessary to apply additional passive protection. It is necessary, among others, when there is a need to adapt the building to the requirements of R 240. What types of fire protection for concrete can be used?


Additional protection of concrete against fire

To meet the specific requirements of the increased fire protection of concrete, such solutions like:


  • prefabricated elements, the so-called tubings, with the addition of polypropylene PP fibers,

  • fireproof casing made of silicone-cement boards,

  • protecting spray layers.


Our offer includes mainly fireproof mortars / fireproof mortar sprays. The structure is protected by the spraying method.
