To Specify, Simply State
To achieve BS EN Class B sl, d0, inspect and prepare in accordance with manufacturer’s instructions and apply -

  • 1 coat of Thermoguard Wallcoat
  • 1 coat of Thermoguard Wallcoat Smoke & Flame Retardant Matt or Eggshell Finish

Fire Testing & Certification
Tested at UKAS Fire Test Laboratory -

  • Achieved BS EN Class B s1 d0 - Highest standard

We issue a Fire Certificate upon request for each correctly specified project for Insurance, Fire and Building Authority and Client Records against proof of purchase. Certified Fire protection is guaranteed if all instructions are followed on suitable surfaces.

Flamespread & Smoke Protection
When exposed to fire, Thermoguard Wallcoat expands to create a fire protective barrier, insulating surfaces from heat and oxygen and preventing combustion. Thermoguard Wallcoat Smoke & Flame Retardant Topcoats (Matt & Eggshell) actively suppress smoke, particles and flaming droplets.

UK Fire Safety Order 2005, Flamespread and Smoke
The Fire Safety Order 2005 requires property managers to comply with current fire standards for corridors, stairways, entrance lobbies etc. Even on non-combustible walls & ceilings, multiple layers of incompatible paints “Multi-Layer” often create the worst Class 4 - EN Class E - Surface Spread of Flame risk.

While the British Class 0 is still accepted, it will soon become defunct, as it has been superseded by the safer standard BS EN Class B s1 d0, with its more rigorous flame-spread protection and control of dangerous smoke and burnt particulates.

NEW EU/BS EN Fire Standard Explained

  • EU fire standard BS EN Class B replaces BS476 Class 0
  • In 2012 both BS476 and BS EN comply, but BS 476 is rapidly being replaced by the more severe and realistic EN test including air flow.
  • BS EN also monitors dangerous smoke. The safest class is s1
  • BS EN also measures flaming droplets & burnt particulates. The safest class is d0
  • The new safest standard for corridors, stairs etc is BS EN Class B s1 d0.

Please can you tell me how long the working application time is with this product once mixed.So if I mixed a 100sqm measure will I have enough time to use itThank you

Pete box from Gillingham, Kent (England) - 17/10/17


Thermoguard Wallcoat Smoke & Flame Retardant Topcoat is a single pack product, other than stirring before use there is no mixing of a base and an activator as it is not a two pack product so there is also no 'pot life' as you would get with a two component material.

can you send sample colors of the paint ? and what is eggshell , is it just where it has a sheen ? look forward to your reply

geoff billing from derby (england) - 15/05/17

We don't offer samples of fire retardant products, however the colours this product comes in are RAL, BS and NCS which are not unique to the product. These colour ranges are industry standards which are available in a wide range of products so you may be able to find a product locally in the colours you wish to test prior to purchase.

With regards to the finishes of Thermoguard Wallcoat Smoke & Flame Retardant Topcoat, Matt has almost no sheen whatsoever and Eggshell offers a subtle sheen level.

1. I have an open chimney space with a wood burner that spans two rooms (double sided wood burner). Is this paint suitable to go on the wall of an open chimney space with wood burner? The wall is 18 cms away from the side of the wood burner.2. Can I get a physical colour chart rather than an on line version?Many thanks Catriona
