Products

Promat offers a full range of products for passive fire protection.

Boards

Fire protective boards are an essential part of the fire safety of a tunnel. They can be used for example to protect structures (steel, concrete and composite), create fire compartmentation and for ducts that control the heat and smoke during a fire.

Promat produces one of the most complete and efficient ranges of boards on the market, benefiting from the wide range of technologies available within the ETEX Group, including the patented PROMAXON® calcium silicate and PromaX® technologies. Promat boards are fully tested by independent accredited institutes are non-combustible and have the longest durability according to the most severe standards. Promat board protection systems are designed for easy installation, high jobsite productivity and with respect for the health of installers and users. Various board products are available to suit the requirements for fire resistance, acoustic and preferred installation methods.

Spray Coatings

Fire protective sprays are often used to protect steel and concrete structures against fire. A fire protective spray is made of powder mixed with water using a machine to produce a paste. The paste can be pumped and sprayed, enabling fast application even on structures of complex geometries.

 

Promat produces plaster-based sprays and cementitious sprays of low and high densities. For each project, the ideal choice is available dependent on the fire resistance requirement, jobsite conditions, installation speed and durability requirements.

 

Fire Stopping

Installation of a firestop system is crucial to maintain the fire resistance of a fire separation that has openings (service penetrations, open cavities or joints) that could allow fire or hot smoke to pass to any other part of the tunnel. Effective fire-stopping in fire resisting separating elements plays a critical role in containing a fire at its source. It is essential that all openings and gaps are fire-stopped to restrict fire spread

Promat provides several integrated and effective fire stopping solutions, including the successful and easy to install PROMASTOP® and PROMASEAL® systems. All the Promat systems and proucts are certified for high fire-resistant rating, are conform to the main international standards and have proven durability.

Systems

Promat offers a full range of systems for passive fire protection.

Structural Protection

The main structure of a tunnel needs a reliable passive fire protection to maintain its load bearing capability in case of fire. Promat offers you excellent solutions to cover and protect your load bearing structure (steel, concrete, composite), taking into account local regulations and aesthetic criteria.

Fire Stopping

A compartment needs high quality fire stopping solutions to guarantee its performance. As specialized installers create transitions for cables, ducts or piping, our collars and wraps are installed to safeguard the compartment. In case of fire, the intumescent collars with expandable graphite seal off the partition to prevent the spread of fire.

 

Ventilation & Smoke Extraction

Fire protection requirements for ventilation ducts are directly related to their design function, the nature and behaviour of the fire and the construction materials that fuel the fire load. The fire resistance performance of the ventilation duct itself also plays a critical role. It is possible to prevent fire spread from one fire compartment (e.g. between floors) to another, along stairways and general access corridors only if all building materials and structural elements share a common fire classification and fire resistance rating. Typical steel sheet ducts fail to meet internationally accepted fire protection requirements. They heat and deform rapidly from the effects of fire. In certain circumstances they even accelerate the spread of flame and smoke.

Ventilation ducts up to 120 minutes fire resistance

Sheet steel ducts from an independent manufacturer can be cladded with PROMATECT® fire protection boards or the duct can be fabricated entirely from PROMATECT® fire protection boards.

When existing steel sheet ducts are cladded, for example, with PROMATECT® fire protection boards it is necessary to satisfy additional fire protection requirements for change in use status.

Ventilation ducts are tested according to EN 1366-1 and classified according to EN 13501-3. The classification is completed by ‘(i → o)’, ‘(o → i)’, or ‘(i ↔ o)’ to indicate whether the element has been tested and fulfils the requirements from the inside or outside only or both. Promat solutions in both cases (with or without steel ducts) fulfil the requirements from both sides ‘(i ↔ o)’.

A more economical solution, however, is achieved by specifying and installing tested and proven PROMATECT® ventilation ducts from Promat, the world leader in professional fire science technologies.

 

Heat and smoke control ducts up to 120 minutes fire resistance

The smoke extraction lines are tested automatically with fire load from both sides.Basically two heat and smoke control ducts can be distinguished:

  • single compartment smoke control ducts, which can be used in one fire section only and are tested according to EN 1366-9 and classified according to EN 13501-4
  • multi compartment fire resistant smoke control ducts, which can be used in any number of fire sections and are tested according to EN 1366-8 and classified according to EN 13501-4

 

Promat offers solutions without steel ducts for both systems up to 120 minutes fabricated with PROMATECT® fire protection boards.
