Specifiers overseeing winter maintenance schedules can introduce Crown Trade Timonox Flame Retardant Coatings to underpin fire safety management programmes. The system reduces the risk of fire spread on walls and ceilings, where multiple layers of conventional paint can create a flammable surface if they have built-up over many years.
Building designers, Local Authorities, Housing Associations and building owners have a Duty of Care to build and maintain premises that not only minimise fire risk but also to reduce the loss of life, injury and damage to property if a fire was to start.
Multiple layers of conventional paint coatings whether water or solvent borne can make a previously non-combustible surface dangerous by their potential to burn, spreading fire rapidly and turning circulation and communal areas, or escape routes, into a mass of flames in seconds. However, Crown Trade Timonox offers a cost effective solution to address the situation.
Debbie Orr, Marketing Manager at Crown Paints, said: Crown Trade Timonox Flame Retardant Coatings work by limiting the oxygen around the flames through the release of non-combustible gases, and by using a formulation that provides a barrier to the flammable paint layers beneath".
