YMS, an A-Listed structural steel construction company, is an approved specialist in Fire Proofing as an applicator providing the best optimized solution in both Intumescent and Cementitious Fireproofing methods across the nation. 


Applying a certification listed fireproofing system to certain structures allows these to have a fire-resistance rating. YMS Engg.’s team of specialty contractors and craftsmen have extensive experience applying a wide range of fireproofing materials and systems, including:

Intumescent Fireproofing: These coatings are used for protection of steel-work which when exposed to flame or intense heat decompose and bubble into a foam which protects die substrate and prevents the flame from spreading. This is used in any area where smooth, durable, and decorative multi-hour fire protection is required. It gives architects the ability to design using steel colors that can be aesthetically pleasing. The color options are limitless!
Cementitious Fireproofing: Cementitious or wet mix fireproofing is mixed with water and pumped under pressure through hoses to a nozzle where air is introduced. The wet slurry is then broadcast onto structural steel surfaces. The inherent fire resist-ive mechanism of products is the release of water, in the form of steam, when exposed to elevated temperatures
