PROMATECT®-T

ADVANTAGES

  • Easy to install, the application of PROMATECT®-T can be achieved on existing tunnels without total elimination of the traffic.
  • The engineered matrix of PROMATECT®-T allows for reduced fire protection thicknesses (by up to 50%) for equivalent concrete interface temperatures.

Matrix engineered mineral board

PROMATECT®-T is part of a new generation of high performance board products with multiple advantages for the protection of concrete structures and the protection of escape routes, fire doors, cable systems and ventilation systems.

Designed to provide protection solutions for use within the most severe of fire scenarios; as defined by the RWS fire curve; PROMATECT®-T provides not just a barrier to the passage of fire, but in a way that ensures the substrate being protected is kept cool in a controlled manner.
Simple and easy to install, PROMATECT®-T can be applied within existing tunnels without the need to completely close off all traffic lanes.
The engineered matrix of PROMATECT®-T provides a superior performance that allows for a reduction in the required fire protection thickness for equivalent concrete interface temperatures to much thicker competitor products and systems.
