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.

fire protection services

We conduct fire protection for offshore installations, industrial plants, cruise ships and passenger ferries.

Fire Security is a Norwegian Company and the only cable-coating producer offering a turnkey operation by specially trained personnel worldwide.

We use intumescent coating for interior cables and ablative coating for both exterior and interior areas. Our cable coating systems guarantee that your cables function correctly during a fire and are reusable afterward. By protecting cables and cable trays we also contribute to reducing the risk of structural damage and loss of lives.

Fire Security has the expertise if your company needs a consultation regarding fire protection options on new cables or if your existing cables and splices are aging prematurely and fireproofing would be beneficial for economical and safety concerns.

This image reveals how an intumescent cable coating expands up to 100 times its thickness during a fire.Testing reveals

Uncoated electrical cables may encounter 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 protection cable coating expands up to 100 times its thickness during a fire and protects cables in fire temperatures up to 1100° Celsius.

At a temperature of approximately 220° Celsius or by direct flame contact, the intumescents starts to produce a light char, which is a poor conductor of heat, thus retarding heat transfer. Hydrates within the coating release during a fire, water vapor is released, which has a cooling effect. The intumescent coating delays the ignition and prevents fire spreading. FS1 after drying is viscous elastic, virtually odorless, and environmentally friendly.

Fire Security is certified by DNV-GL to the ISO 9001:2015 Quality Management System standard

It is reliable because there are no electrical or mechanical activating devices to fail, no human error to be concerned about, no tanks to refill, and no regular maintenance.
