COLONIAL FIREPROOFING SOLUTIONS
Monokote®, fireproofing backed by a global reputation, is a life-safety product designed to reduce the rate of temperature rise in steel or concrete in the event of a fire. This prolongs the structural integrity of the elements, which allows more people to leave a building in an emergency situation, and gives first responders time to save the building.
Based on its easy-to-use characteristics, global reputation and lengthy proven history, Monokote® has been employed in some of the world’s biggest projects. The MGM City Center in Las Vegas, employed over 500,000 bags of GCP Applied Technologies fireproofing product. Likewise, the architects of Singapore’s Keppel Bay Bridge and New York City’s own Freedom Tower have each specified Monokote® products to keep their buildings safe.
