Torrex™ Flameshield Ultimate-AG

Overview


The Torrex™ Flameshield Ultimate-AG system allows you to upgrade the fire rating of existing painted surfaces (subject to adhesion), protecting against rapid spread of flame and graffiti. The 3-coat system has been successfully tested on the Warrington Blue Board and is covered under the Certifire 3rd Party accreditation scheme, giving specifiers peace of mind. Our systems allow proprietors to comply with Section B2 of the building regulations and fulfil their obligations under the Regulatory Reform (fire safety) Order (RRFSO).

The topcoat is an anti-graffiti finish which offers superior levels of protection against damage by allowing long-term graffiti removal when used in conjunction with the Tor graffiti removal systems.
