The easy - guard class '0' intumescent paint system has been designed in partnership with Exova Warringtonfire.
This passive fire protection product is a must for all communal areas where multiple layers of paint have been allowed to build up. If a fire breaks out, these layers of paint can ignite and the flames can chase down a wall or across a ceiling using the paint as part of its fuel. Combustion of this sort is fast and ferocious and tests have shown fires can chase down corridors or up stairwells faster than most people can run. It is for this reason that the Department of Trade and Industry's (DTI's) Fire Safety Code of Practice recommends that where multiple layers of paint exist, walls should be stripped back to bare plaster (a very expensive operation) or encapsulated with a fire retardant paint.
easy - guard Class '0' barrier compound is an intumescent fire paint and in the worst case Warringtonfire "blue board" test gained a Class '0' rating for BS476 parts 6 & 7. easy - guard Class '0' fire retardant paints are available in any RAL or BS colour to compliment and enhance the living environment and have been tested to BS476 along with the easy - on anti vandal paint system.
By using easy - guard Class '0' fire paint and easy - on anti graffiti paint together you can guarantee clean, Class '0', fire retardant walls for up to 20 years without having to worry about your passive fire protection efforts being compromised by overzealous graffiti removal, a common problem in schools and tower blocks.
easy - guard Class '0' intumescent fire paint enables architects, building owners and surveyors to comply with Section B2 of the Building Regulations act and also to fulfil their obligations under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order (RRFSO).
