Pioneering technology, which provides traceability as standard across Nullifire’s renowned intumescent steel coatings range, has been launched for the construction sector.
Optifire+ is a unique pigment that is impossible to manipulate, offering a guaranteed source of quality to deliver new levels of assurance to architects, main contractors and specifiers.
The technology represents an important step in Nullifire’s approach to manufacturing next-generation products, which help support the increasing demands from building regulations for effective fire strategies across commercial and residential builds.
Nullifire’s Sales Director, Gary Pullinger, “As a product identification tool, Optifire+ does not change the way in which the range of Nullifire intumescent coatings work. Instead it acts as an incentive to ensure that products are used and applied correctly. The technology means we can be sure, at any time after a project has been completed, that the product specified is that which is installed.”
Nullifire’s technical support teams across the UK will be able to identify the company’s range of intumescent paints via a unique traceability tool.
Manufactured within the UK, Nullifire’s products have a track record of performance and compliance, with their range being tested extensively by third body associations and fully certified for a range of fire protection needs.
Part of the Construction Products Group portfolio of brands, Nullifire products are used extensively across built environments, with the benefit of highly knowledgeable technical support and service teams, to ensure the ultimate peace of mind in the specification process.
Gary added: “With Optifire + technology being invisible to the naked eye, this change is not one that will affect performance or product aesthetics."
“However, it will give applicators, contractors and specifiers the confidence of product traceability at all stages of construction.”
