We have no experience of this but we wouldn't recommend it.
I would assume from the description that this is a metal substrate? If so our initial suggestion would be Rust-Oleum Mathys Noxyde. If you contact our Technical Team on 0113 2455450 (option 2) or [email protected] with some further information - size, images, etc. then they would be able to provide a more detailed specification for your project.
We would recommend applying Thermilate InsOpaint Anti-Condensation Paint. Thoroughly clean down the surface, lightly sand to remove the sheen on the existing paint and apply 2 - 3 coats. This can then be left as a finish or over painted with your own paint/colour if required.

There are vast types of paints available for all sorts of specialist projects. We have tried to simplify your search on our website with comprehensive categories and sub-categories.
If there is a specific paint or use you are looking for, you can also use the ‘Search’ tool which will prompt/suggest products you may be looking for.
Each header has a dropdown box, and then each category has further subcategories that appear to the right when the cursor is hovered over the category name.
We have a designated ‘Wood Finishes’ category under ‘Paints & Coatings that categorises further into:
- • Wood preparation
- • Interior wood finishes
- • Exterior wood finishes
- • Wood floor finishes
- • Decking paint
We stock a comprehensive range of wood varnishes, stains, oils, protective finishes, and wood paint for both interior and exterior uses – pretty much every project you can think of is covered by a product in our range. Whatever you need, we can provide advice on the best wood finish to use, from heavy duty floor varnish to opaque wood paint, decking oil to Danish oil, and water-based or solvent-based.
A primer is a preparatory product. It creates an extra layer between your paint and the substrate, helping it last longer, bond better and often smoothing out the surface for optimum lifespan and performance. To look at it a different way, makeup primers are used for the same purpose in cosmetics!
Primers can also be used to add more specific extra protection, such as using a UV primer, a waterproofing primer or a penetrating primer.

We would suggest Blackfriar Anti-Slip Deck Coating here, test a small area first to ensure compatability, appearance, adhesion etc. before doing the whole area.
Assuming this is standard universal beams and columns in a domestic residential property with steels located in interior, dry environments needing 30 minute protection we would recommend Zeroflame Aquasteel WB+ 30min System for Steel.
We would need to know the composition of the headboard so that we can match it as closely as we can to a test?
Unfortunately we don't have any fire retardant paint for ceiling tiles.
