Envirograf has supplied its Product 92 ES/VFR coating to provide a suitable level of fire protection at Westminster Choir School. In the shadow of the great abbey is Westminster Choir School, dating back to 1170. The school is renowned for its choral excellence, and it has followed centuries of traditional values in education.
The school recently underwent an extensive internal refurbishment programme. In order to provide fire protection and retain the original character and elegance of the woodwork, Fire Prevention Products (London) Ltd were consulted.
As most of the wood is very old and possibly contains layers of polish, FPP recommended the use of Envirograf® Product 42 HWAP adhesion primer to provide a solid foundation to the surface. The contractors needed an acceptable level of fire protection to Class 0 and Class 1 spread of flame, so the Envirograf® Product 92 ES/VFR coating system was used.
This was subsequently coated over with the strong and resilient protective top coat Envirograf® Product 42 HW05, which will give the surfaces many years of tough protection.
