Growing concern over fire safety in
public buildings has greatly increased the demand for
fire-resistive materials in buildings. Stricter
building codes have boosted industry standards,
creating a specialized and high profile market for
these materials and the contractors who apply them.
However, fire-resistive materials must be applied
properly to protect the building structure. Inspection
is one means of evaluating that fireproofing is applied
in accordance with approved project plans and
specifications, and with the intended materials.
One of the key elements of any
project is to provide knowledgeable technicians capable
of performing the required testing services. At SK
Geotechnical Corporation, our technicians are trained
to perform testing and inspection on various types of
fire-resistive materials, including intumescent paint.
We understand the importance of maintaining the
construction schedule and providing personnel with the
necessary experience, capabilities, and equipment.
