Fire Engineered Beams


  • UK’S first integrated solution for optimised fire-engineered beam designs.

  • Fire tested up to 2 hrs by Exova Warrington Fire and accredited by SCI.

  • Ability to save between weight or overall cost.


FIREBEAM® has been tested exhaustively at Exova Warrington fire in a three-year programme of loaded, coated, composite fire tests.

These tests were devised and analysed by the Steel Construction Institute and the resulting mathematical model incorporated into the fire module of FIREBEAM® and indeed form the backbone of modern fire design guidance for cellular beam protection in the UK and Europe.

The intumescent coatings are unique and innovative products that have excellent performance in a fire condition to provide fire resistance up to 2 hours.

The fire-engineered module with FBEAM® is a state-of-the-art technology solution, fusing the latest optimisation and coating technology to provide the UK’S first integrated solution for optimised fire-engineered beam designs.  Data on the latest range of coating technologies are held within the software.  This allows efficient fire-engineering with much-reduced coating thicknesses, even at 2 hours fire resistance.  As the software is third-party verified the user is able to design a whole building of fire-engineered long span cellular beams instantly and efficiently, without the need to wade through lengthy and complex fire protection guidance.

FIREBEAMS® are designed by our steel designers using the optimum combination of steel section and intumescent coating to give the most economical solutions for 30-120 minutes fire resistance including 15-minute incremental steps allowing the user to choose between a saving in weight or overall cost.

Once the optimised cellular beam design is complete, it is very easy to output the tabulated specification of the Fabsec solutions.
