UltraTech Fire Safe helps in passive fire protection with its carefully chosen mix constituents that can withstand high elevated temperatures.
These control fire spread and its effect by providing sufficient fire resistance to prevent loss of structural stability within a prescribed time period, which is based on the building’s occupancy and fire safety objectives.
When tested as per IS 3809 UltraTech Fire Safe achieves 4-Hour fire ratings to systems that employed vermiculite as one of the components
UltraTech Fire Safe concrete has excellent insulating properties. Three inches of Fire Safe concrete is equivalent to 1 1/2" of rigid board insulation layer over steel decks. One inch of vermiculite concrete is equal in insulating value to 20 inches of regular concrete
When compared with structural grade concrete, UltraTech Fire Safe concrete is 60% of the weight. This results in considerable savings from the footings through the structural steel
UltraTech Fire Safe concrete can be applied over a variety of bases, allowing architects and engineers ample flexibility in their design criteria. The thickness of the concrete can be varied to permit necessary slope to drain
