Fire retardant and intumescent paint provide Vancouver fire protection

2017 saw B.C. suffer through the worst wildfire season in its history when 1300 fires burned through 12,164 square kilometres. For residents of Vancouver fire protection has been paramount since the Great Vancouver Fire destroyed most of the fledgling city in 1886 and the Vancouver Fire Brigade began building its fleet in earnest. Nowadays Vancouver fire protection systems are slightly more advanced, and now the range of possibilities has expanded to include coatings. Intumescent coating swells and forms an insulating char in response to high heat (commonly used for structural steel), and fire retardant paint emits flame-damping gases to prevent fire spread (commonly used for wood structures). When it comes to fire retardant paint and intumescent paint, Vancouver has you covered.

In this article we look at the fire retardant and intumescent paint companies and suppliers in Vancouver, all in one helpful map. For a look at fire resistant paint and the Canadian regulations, visit our overview page.
