Fireproofing is a method of protection designed to increase the fire resistance of structures. It provides additional protection, allowing time to fight a fire, to shut off the fuel supply, and to shutdown the entire process. As a result, overall damage is minimized. As part of the Dominion E&C group, we have the expertise and experience in providing fireproofing solutions for all systems and existing technologies. Our solutions protect a wide variety of equipment including structural steel, pressure vessels, heat exchangers, pipe supports, LPG spheres and bullets, valves and cable trays.
The decision to fireproof is driven by a risk-based analysis. One needs to first consider the nature of the fire threat and then make an appropriate assessment of the required period of fire endurance.
