Promat Chosen to Protect Major New Energy Recovery Facility

One of the UK’s leading fire protection contractors has again turned to Promat UK to provide a passive fire protection solution for a new Energy Recovery Facility (ERF). North Shields-based Intumescent Protective Coatings Ltd (IPCL) chose Promat VERMICULUX® boards to protect the structural steelwork of the new state-of-the-art Ardley facility in Oxfordshire.

“We regularly use Promat products and have always found their fire protection solutions to be reliable and effective,” says IPCL’s Sales Director, Steve McAllister.  “This project called for high specification protection and so VERMICULUX® was an obvious choice. Promat was the only manufacturer that was comfortable with us using their board to protect the cold-rolled steel sections which feature in some parts of the plant. These are thinner and lighter than hot-rolled sections and so require more fire protection, but Promat advised that VERMICULUX® was more than equal to the job.”
