Industrial fireproofing systems are designed to prevent the onset of all sorts of common fires. Fireproofing products are distributed throughout the fabric of a building. Many modern building materials, including cement and plasters, are specially created to insulate particularly vulnerable areas of a building. For example the walls and ceilings.
Other fire retardants like special intumescent materials are also common, especially useful for industrial equipment. These are special chemical coatings designed to expand when heated, making the areas where they are used much more flame resistant. These prevent a drama from becoming a potential crisis.
