Many large structures – such as apartment blocks, high-rise offices and hotels – are built using a steel frame. This offers a cost-effective and stable construction option.
However, steel structure fire protection is an essential aspect to consider when designing or renovating such a project.
If steel is exposed to temperatures of 500°C and above, the structural integrity and stability is at risk, which could result in loss of strength of the structural steel supporting the building construction and result in collapse in the event of a fire.
An effective fire safety strategy can reduce this risk, including the installation of fire protection to steel beams and columns.
