Formed in 1987, Sharpfibre is one of the UK’s oldest and most respected privately owned fire protection contractors. We provide complete passive fire protection systems for the commercial, industrial and residential sectors. Our core services include structural steel protection, fire stopping and penetration sealing and building insulation, which can have acoustic thermal and fire stopping benefits.
Sharpfibre utilise three varying application methods to ensure the protection of structural steel; cementitious fire spray, boarded fire protection systems and intumescent paint. All three methods serve to increase the amount of time that occupants have to exit the property, with fire spray and boarded options offering up to 240 minutes protection and intumescent paint offering 120 minutes protection.
Our fire stopping and penetration sealing solutions are a fundamental requirement when it comes to building fire safety; preventing fire, smoke and toxic gas from spreading through gaps around service pipes in wall, floors and partitions. Through the use of fire barriers, compounds and intumescent sealants, we are able to prevent the passage of smoke, toxic gases and fire for up to 240 minutes.
