Fire Insulation

Fire Insulation

U SeaProtect Fire Solutions

The increasing focus on safety on board is leading to new constructions standards, with fire protection being key for shipbuilders and contractors.

ULTIMATE is a new generation of mineral wool: this unique range of products meets the highest standards of fire protection, including excellent levels of performance in both reaction to fire and fire resistance.
ULTIMATE offers state-of-the-art fire resistance solutions for marine standard constructions. The highly streamlined ULTIMATE product range covers all high-performance product requirements, as well as delivering logistical savings and facilitating installation on site.

Steel Structures

  • Deck: Weight reduction of up to 60% for fire insulation of steel constructions with ULTIMATE slabs. Depending on the construction, ULTIMATE rolls may also be used for safer and more economic installation.
  • Bulkhead: Up to 60% weight saving when insulating steel bulkhead constructions. Very fast installation as ULTIMATE product simply bends around stiffeners. ULTIMATE rolls or slabs may be used, depending on the specification.
  • Floating Floor: Fire protection insulation with weight saving of up to 40%. Shorter installation time due to single-layer solutions, although double-layer solutions can be used if required. Can be finished with steel sheets or floating screeds.

Steel constructions- Standard Design
Lightweight and easy logistics. Four products to cover all Steel A-Fire Classifications, it is all what it takes.

Steel constructions- Thin Design
Thin solutions between and around the stiffeners.
The solutions below may help you gaining space, often a critical issue when designing a ship.

Aluminium Structures
Light structures build in aluminium are much more expensive than steel ones. To be consistant with thos construction choice, it is must to install only lightweight solutions for fire protection of such structures.

  • Deck: Weight saving of up to 35% when insulating light aluminium constructions. Very fast installation thanks to the flexibility of ULTIMATE slabs that can be simply bent around stiffeners. Highest safety: fire protection to A 60 standard.
  • Bulkhead: Up to 35% weight saved with A 60 fire protection insulation. Space-saving solution as the slabs can be bent around stiffeners. Faster and more efficient installation compared to alternative solutions.


Composite/Fibre Reinforced Polymer (FRP) constructions
Light structures build in FRP sandwich panels are much more expensive than steel ones. To be consistant with thos construction choice, it is must to install only lightweight solutions for fire protection of such structures.
