The Ultimate Fireproofing Patch Solution
The patch and repair of damaged fireproofing has always been an industry wide problem. Before UFP there were no really good alternatives. The few products that did exist were hard to purchase and often limited in application. Despite being told it couldn’t be done, we did it. UFP is the first and only DIY fireproofing patch, and the only material specifically tested as a patch.
Fireproofing was designed to maintain the complete structural integrity of a building; so what happens when it is disturbed, removed or otherwise compromised? It really doesn’t matter “who” or “how” fireproofing was damaged, it just needs to be fixed. Period. Let me repeat that. The fireproofing needs to be fixed.
Any damage to fireproofing, whether unavoidable due to the nature of the work, like plumbers, electricians, HVAC, drywallers - they all need to hang from, drill through, or attach to, the fireproofed protected structure in a commercial building, or even accidental, as in a ladder of lift bumped into it, creates a life safety issue. It is imperative to have intact fireproofing to maintain the hourly rating, for the integrity of the building and more importantly, its inhabitants. Just fix the fireproofing.
