Fireproofing is an essential part of a boats infrastructure by preventing fire from spreading through rooms and decks. Mineral wool fiber insulations are made from basalt rock and slag. This combination results in a non-combustible product with a melting point of approximately 2150º F (1177ºC), which gives it excellent fire endurance properties.
Fireproofing is back in the hull structure, bulkheads, ceilings, and walls to prevent the spread of a fire.
There are many types of material used for fire/thermal insulation. One of the most common is mineral wool. We use all type depending on the requirement of each job.
