What is Pyroshield Flame Retardant Paint?

Is a flame retardant coating developed specifically to help reduce the rate of fire spread and is suitable for use on previously painted plaster and masonry services. To ensure the correct performance when applied, only a specialist trained in the correct application of fire retardant paint should be used, as this ensures the correct depth and application process has been adhered to in line with the manufacturers recommendations.

Why should you use a Flame Retardant Coating system

Flame retardant paint offers you compliance with regulations and classifications.  Building Regulations state that internal linings in buildings should "adequately resist the spread of flame over their surfaces" and if ignited "have either a rate of heat release or rate of fire growth which is reasonable in the circumstances". The specifics of the performance linings exhibit are classified in terms of Class 1 and Class 0, detailed in Approved Document B to the Building Regulations.

The Pyroshield fire retardant paint system helps you to achieve building regulation compliance thoroughly and cost-effectively. Professional application of flame retardant coatings R.W.Moss Decorating has a fully qualified and trained team able to guarantee the correct application of Pyroshield that meets all manufacturers specifications.
