About Fire-Trol Div.
The Fire-Trol column is a prefabricated, fireproofed unit consisting of a load-bearing steel column (A) encased in a special proprietary insulating material (B) which is permanently protected by an outer non-load-bearing steel shell (C). Fire-Trol columns are rated and labeled by Underwriters Laboratories, Inc. for fire retardant classifications of 2, 3 and 4 hours. Columns are completely shop fabricated and shipped to the job site ready to erect.
Fire-Trol prefabricated fireproofed steel columns have unequaled design characteristics – a result of continuous improvements by the company that pioneered the concept over three decades ago.
The prefabricated Fire-Trol column has become increasingly popular as an alternative to field installed fire protection for a wide variety of structural components. Interesting horizontals and other framing can be fireproofed to match the external appearance of Fire-Trol columns and enhance the overall architectural continuity in exposed steel designs. The flexibility on integrating the durable steel casing with other structural members is unrivaled and represents one of the latest developments in Fire-Trol prefabricated fireproofed steel columns
With the expense of field labor increasing constantly, the prefabrication option becomes more attractive to cost conscious design professionals. Substitution of lower shop labor rates for costly field trades provides critical value engineering essentials to maintaining structural steel’s competitiveness with other construction materials. Predictable erection scheduling also minimizes expensive crane time.
