The installation of compliant systems is integral to ensuring the Fire Rated Elements function as intended in the even of fire attack. Its also assists your projects completion without delay or post construction defects in respect to Fire Rating.
A large range of products/ systems have been designed and tested by specialist manufacturers. These systems must be installed as per manufacturers specifications, in the correct orientation and have proof of suitability. Compliance can only be achieved when the installation matches the tested prototype eg. Correct wall types, services etc.

Structural Steel Protection
Sealwell can provide all requirement for Fire Rating of structural steel.
In the event of Fire attack, structural steel can lose its loadbearing capacity. This can lead to building collapse. The installation of Fire Spray or Fire Board to members, prevents the steel absorbing heat by providing insulation. Its critical that the correct thickness of board, or spray be applied for the specific application. This is calculated using the required FRLs (Fire Resistance Level), member sizes and orientations.
Sealwell can provide several different options to best suite your project requirements.
Mechanical Duct Protection
Sealwell can provide all fire rating services for mechanical ductwork.
Ductwork often requires fire rating when there is a need for them to function in the event of fire attack (e.g. Smoke spill ducts), when it is not possible to install fire dampers within the walls, (e.g. Kitchen exhaust ducts) or when they are within fire isolated exits etc.
Both Vermiculite spray and Duct wrap have their pros and cons depending on the type of construction. Sealwell can provide you with the best option for your specific project.
Ceilings & Bulkheads
Sealwell specialise in the design and installation of Fireboard bulkheads and ceilings. We use a variety of calcium silicate boards from different manufacturers depending on the exact application.
Bulkheads are often a good solution to problem service penetrations when the location of walls and services clash. Used in conjunction with sealants, collars and wraps that have been tested with the specific board, a fire rated bulkhead can provide an efficient cost effective solution to what can otherwise be significant issues.

Physical Containment Facilities
These facilities require a certified level of containment by the Government regulators. The PC rating can range from PC1 to PC4 which is dependent upon the facility’s purpose.
The objectives of the national rating system is to protect the health and safety of the people within the facility and to protect the external environment from what is generated within the facility.
The PC rating system is a government certification system whose purpose it is to satisfy the regulator and ensure that the facility will:
- Prevent release of GMOs (genetically modified organisms) into the environment.
- Protects persons outside the facility from exposure to GMOs.
- Protects the safety of people working with GMOs inside the facility.
