ShieldAll 6023 is a "Class A" Fire Retardant
Class A, B, C – Class ratings can be applied to a range of products, and refer to different test standards depending on the product rated. For example, interior finish materials are classified within the major building codes as Class A, B, or C when tested to UL 723 (ASTM E84). However, in all cases Class A denotes products that offer a higher degree of performance when subjected to a test fire when compared to products rated Class B and C.
Highest Risks of Fire Damage
- Kitchens The most frequent source of a fire in any hotel, restaurant or residence. The walls, doors, and even kitchen counters should be protected against the spread of fire.
- False Ceiling The topside of a false ceiling is very susceptible to a fire, since it is in close proximity to the electrical wiring and ducting which it conceals. A short – circuit above the false ceiling is not detected until the fire has spread considerably.
- Stairwells In the event of a fire, evacuation is of paramount importance. Painting the stairwells with ShieldAll 6023 can allow more time for evacuation.
- Doors painted with ShieldAll 6023 will slow flame spread and help prevent the fire from spreading.
- Utility & Equipment Rooms Any room that has mechanical and electrical installations is at risk from a fire and must be protected.
- Garage Walls and Ceilings many single family homes have attached garages, a small fire can quickly shoot up a unprotected wall, ignite the exposed rafters and engulf the entire home.
- Unfinished Basements & Attics by encapsulating a unfinished basement or attic in ShieldAll 6023 the homeowner is able to finish the area at their choosing while still being protected from fire.
