Fireproofing products that can help your project earn LEED credits

Posted on Posted in Uncategorized

While fire retardants and intumescent coatings are standard practice for commercial construction, can any of them help you earn LEED v4 points?


“Its Getting Hot In Heerrrre…”

“The Roof, The Roof, The Roof is on Fire!”

“We Didn’t Start the Fire”

“This Girl is on Fire!”

There are an awful lot of songs about things burning down! Let’s keep it to the radio, though, and far, far away from our buildings. To do so, we’ve got to use all sorts of great fireproofing products to nip those flames in the bud.

While fire retardants and intumescent coatings are standard practice for commercial construction, can any of them help you earn LEED v4 points?

Nope – none do. Easiest. Article. Ever.

Wait, I’m getting yelled at… “Fine JENNA, the Badger WILL spill the beans!”

We just added a bunch of fireproofing products to our database that help on both the materials credits as well as the low-emitting credits. This last update was a bunch of products from Isolatek. Isolatek has over a dozen products including their popular CAFO 300/400, Sprayfilm WB, Blazeshield and Fendolite lines that all have HPDs.

Most (but not 100%) also qualify under low-emitting materials for both VOC compliance and emissivity. 

We’re always looking for more products out there that can help you on your LEED projects (there are other VOC compliant options for fire caulks/sealants from Tremco/Hilti/USG), and we’ll be sure to let you know when we find them – OK Jenna?!
