Fire Protection for Hotels

Designing the correct type Fire Protection for Hotels can have significant space, weight and cost savings.  Our recent involvement with the Double Tree Hilton Project in Northbridge Western Australia, has highlighted PROMATECT 100’s versatility as an internal fire wall system for Hotels.

What was specified: 

PROMATECT 100 boards have recently been used as a 2 hour fire wall for the project.  The system only requires a single layer of PROMATECT 100 on either side of the stud work.  The project architects relied on PROMATECT 100 fire walls for the following reasons:

  • Lighter than conventional double layer plasterboard systems
  • Thinner overall walls, allowing for larger hotel rooms
  • Structural steel protection approvals as well as fire wall approvals, allowing for one type of board for the whole project

The PROMATECT 100 wall system was installed by WA Ceilings and Fit Out (WACAF).   They ordered custom made sheets for the project, to reduce waste and cutting on site.  The team at WACAF installed the custom sized PROMATECT 100 boards quickly and efficiently as they were able to reduce the amount of cutting required on site.   The team at WACAF installed the system to a very high standard.

PROMATECT 100 was used to fit out the 17 level Hotel in Northbridge for all of the internal walls.  Progressive Materials was involved in project specification, and site support during construction.  PROMATECT 100 walls also provide excellent acoustic properties. This project also featured the supply of our Promat SystemFloor for fire separation between levels, as well as a wide selection of fire stopping products from our range.
