If you are decorating interior public spaces over winter, Crown Trade Timonox Flame Retardant Coatings can play a crucial role in supporting fire safety in the building.

The system reduces the risk of fire spread on walls and ceilings, where multiple layers of conventional paint can create a flammable surface if they have built-up over many years.

This means that, when applied on the walls and ceilings of corridors, stairwells and other communal areas that form part of a circulation area or fire escape route Crown Trade Timonox can help provide additional time for a building to be safely evacuated.

It’s the ideal solution for public buildings such as hotels, school and college corridors, as well as social housing communal areas.

Debbie Orr, Marketing Manager at Crown Paints, said: “Crown Trade Timonox Flame Retardant Coatings work by limiting the oxygen around the flames through the release of non-combustible gases, and by using a formulation that provides a barrier to the flammable paint layers beneath.

“This means Crown Trade Timonox help buy precious extra time for evacuation – with the potential to save lives.

“Furthermore, it can enable more time for rescue services to take control of the fire affected area and control fire spread, which could potentially reduce damage to buildings.”
