When an intumescent coating is required for timber, Fireshield has clear and pigmented systems to suit any project. Choose from Fireshield 1FR (clear) or Fireshield 2FR (pigmented) systems, both best spray applied in a single coat. Fireshield 1FR must be topcoated with 1FR TOPcoat to protect it from moisture and wear, while Fireshield 2FR may be topcoated with Resene SpaceCote in the designer's choice of Resene colours.
Fireshield was first imported into New Zealand for South Island projects where a clear finish was required on an accommodation project designed using prefabricated building systems to shorten the build time and reduce construction costs. Pallets of Fireshield were flown in and used to coat almost every surface in the lodge.
The Fireshield coated solution was next used on The Papanui, a 3000m² glulam club with timber veneered acoustic ceiling panels throughout, saving both labour and product costs. It also avoided the need for fire rated MDF and the associated VOCs.
Fireshield products are now available exclusively through Resene, providing a nationwide network of technical support to assist with projects throughout the country where an intumescent finish is required.
