FireMaster® - Lightweight Structural Fire Protection, Thermal and Acoustic Insulation

Tebay Road,
CH62 3PH Other,
United Kingdom

Morgan Thermal Ceramics’ FireMaster® fire protection range was specifically designed to meet the structural fire protection needs of the offshore and chemical process industry, offering high performance in fires, with low weight contribution.

FireMaster® 607 flexible, lightweight blanket products are used for bulkhead and deck fire protection in accommodation and process modules, vessel and pipe fire protection, cable tray fire protection and structural steel protection. Systems are available for cellulosic, hydrocarbon and jet fire protection.

FireMaster® products are comprehensively certified and tested to both national and international standards, offering our customers the security of proven fire performance. Supporting worldwide approvals are in-service references from a market that we have served for over 20 years.

FireMaster® products are capable of extended operation at high temperatures. This means our fire protection solutions can be thinner, lighter or simply more cost-effective choices in applications where fire temperatures can reach nearly 1,400°C.
