There are many different types of fire protective boards, with different production technologies and compositions. Some boards rely more on thermal insulation values, and some more on heat absorption, but in the end they all aim to maximize the temperature reduction on the cold side compared to the fire side.
However, thermal performance is not all that counts. Each type of board has its own behavior during a fire. For example, shrinkage, cracking or deformation when exposed to fire can reduce the effectiveness of a board. Promat boards are characterized by high thermal stability, so they deliver fire resistance under the most severe conditions.
Within the Promat board range, different board types and a wide range of board thicknesses are available, each suited for specific fire safety applications. Apart from the fire resistance performance, the different board types each have specific advantages such as easy installation, resistance against impact or resistance against weather exposure.
