Fire Retardant Spray used in the World Trade Center Reconstruction is Available for Homeowners
After being used in the reconstruction of World Trade Center Number 7 in New York City, New York, Inspecta-Shield Plus is now available to help homeowners and small business owners protect their property, loved ones and customers.
Deer Park, NY, September 09, 2011 - When construction began on the World Trade Center adjacent to Ground Zero, the architect and construction teams employed numerous techniques to help increase safety in the landmark building. As a part of these safety measures, Northeast Fireshield's Inspecta-Shield Plus fire-retardant spray was applied in the elevator banks on three of the building's floors.
The presence of Inspecta-Shield Plus spray helps increase the amount of time available to safely evacuate a building like the World Trade Center, but it is just as effective when used in a home or small business. Inspecta-Shield works by causing an increase in the combustion temperature of flammable items. More simply put, the product makes items resistant to flames, meaning that temperatures must become higher for them to burn in comparison to an untreated product.
Northeast Fireshield's Inspecta-Shield Plus spray is completely nontoxic. Its colorless formula is invisible under normal lighting, so it has no impact upon the appearance of a treated room or material. A versatile product, Inspecta-Shield Plus works on lumber, carpeting, curtains, paper, draperies and many other flammable materials. Trained technicians from Northeast Fireshield perform the application of Inspecta-Shield Plus using specialized sprayers. After a 48-hour curing period, that one application is enough to protect the treated area.
Inspecta-Shield Plus is the only colorless, Class A fire retardant spray on the market that carries the approval of the IC Evaluation Service for lumber and plywood. The product also has accreditations through numerous other agencies, including Underwriters Laboratory, the Federal Aviation Administration and the New York City Fire Department.
Its proven ability to increase the amount of time for safe evacuations and effective responses from firefighters has made Northeast Fireshield's Inspecta-Shield Plus spray part of the fire safety systems in many well known facilities, such as the Metropolitan Opera and the US Embassies around the world. Now, the same formula used to protect these important buildings can help protect the things most important to homeowners, too.
