Albi Protective Coatings

The Origin of Intumescent Fireproofing

Introduction to Building Fireproofing Products, an AIA CEU 1 Credit Course

Fire is a threat that, as designers, you need to consider and design for. Commonly used building materials lose strength when exposed to fire, and so the need to protect the health and safety of occupants through fireproofing is essential. This course looks at fireproofing standards, testing, and the application of a variety of products to meet the fireproofing requirements of your designs.
