Elkem has done business with Fire Security since 1986 on several fire protection projects over the years. In co-operation with our insurance company we have reached a secure level for preventing and minimizing fires and the spreading of fires at the plant.

During these years we have also experienced that a fire in our cabling was stopped when it reached the cables protected with fire paint.

We here on the Cajun Express are very pleased with the cable coating job that your company has performed for us in the sack room. The job was carried out in a very efficient and professional manor.

I would recommend your company to any one of our rigs that may be having similar problems as we had. Again I would thank your company for a job well done.

In August 2005 we experienced a fire in the main engine room on board one of our vessels. Lighting fixtures and smoke detectors melted completely but the cables were found to be in normal working order and there was no need for any cable replacements as result of this incident.

We are pleased to give Fire Security and their coatings our best recommendation.

Fire Security offers cale fire protection for industrial plants, off shore installations, cruise ships and passenger ferries.

Fire Security is a Norwegian Company and the only cable-coating producer offering a turn-key operation by specially trained personnel worldwide. We deliver fire protection for offshore installations, industrial plants, cruise ships and passenger ferries.

We deliver intumescent coating for interior use and ablative coating for both exterior and interior use. Our cable coating systems will guarantee that your cables will function properly under a fire and be reusable afterwards. By protecting cables and cable trays we also contribute to reducing the risk of structural damage and loss of lives.

Testing reveals

Uncoated electrical cables experience a short circuit after less than two minutes in an oil fire, while FS coated cables function up to one hour without a short circuit. The intumescent FS1 fire protective cable coating will expand up to 100 times its thickness during a fire.

At a temperature of approximately 220° Celsius or by direct flame contact, the intumescents produce a light char, which is a poor conductor of heat, thus retarding heat transfer. Hydrates within the coating are spent during a fire, water vapor is released, which has a cooling effect. The intumescent coating delays the ignition and prevents spreading fire.

FS 1 after drying is viscous elastic, virtually odourless and environmentally friendly.

ISO Certification.

Fire Security is certified by DNV according to the ISO 9001:2008 standard.

Our coating systems have been approved by DNV, NMD, ABS, The US Coast Guard, FM, Lloyds and Achilles.

FS cable coatings are recommended by insurance companies and most cruise operators specifies this protection when ordering new vessels.
