Are you looking for a way to increase your existing passive fire protection system with something rated for both blast and fire, designed specifically for enclosures, ceilings, walls, barriers, and ducts? One company has an innovative solution called DuraSteel. When used in conjunction with its other passive fire protection systems, this unique board provides fire protection for up to six hours. In addition, it offers up to 2.3 bar or 33 psi blast protection.

Without the proper system, a fire could quickly wipe out an entire business, not to mention, put countless lives at risk. According to the latest records generated by the US Fire Administration from 2015, fire impacted more than 1.3 million commercial buildings. Of those, over 3,000 people lost their lives along with an additional 15,000 plus who sustained severe injury. As for property damage, officials estimated $3.1 billion.

Whether you have a small company with just a handful of employees or a large corporation that employs hundreds, having the right passive fire protection system in place is one of the most critical decisions you will ever make. Using a DuraSystems passive fire protection system that utilizes DuraSteel can provide you with fire-resistant ducts, fire separations, or enclosures.

In addition to preventing the spread of fire and protecting from blasts, the DuraSteel panel is non-combustible, works in fire and blast assemblies known as rapid temperature rise hydrocarbon. In that scenario, the board offers post-blast exposure fire ratings as high as H120.

Cutting-Edge Design

This fire and blast resistant board has an advanced design made of two metal face sheets. Those sheets are mechanically bonded to a cement core with fiber reinforcement. Combined, the board is the ideal choice for both outdoor and harsh industrial environments. Another benefit, in addition to fire and blast protection, the DuraSteel board offers resistance to impact and moisture.

Another reason for installing this board is its ability to reduce sound thanks to incredible acoustic properties. For DuraSteel assemblies with a non-exposed face, sound levels diminish dramatically.

Using one of DuraSystems’ DuraSteel passive fire protection system is enough to create a much safer environment. Extensively tested, this board is a superior choice. It is easy to install and with a versatile design, you can quickly uninstall and reinstall it in no time for fire and blast protection in a different area.
