  • Increased fire resistance: Encasing the steel beams in a non-combustible fireboard material prevents fire and heat from causing damage to the structure.
  • Aesthetic Enhancement: Beam encasement can improve the overall appearance of a building and tie in with the finishes of the internal partitioning.
  • Cost-effective, robust solution.
  • A fast and effective method to finish structural beams and columns.
