Rhino Shield's Class A Fire Rating

Written by Roxanne Ecklund on November 25, 2013

Rhino Shield proudly claims a Class A Fire Rating. But what does that mean to the property owner?

The Fire Suppression Rating Schedule (FSRS) is the standard measurement of criteria as outlined by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA).

The fire rating is the duration of time that something can withstand a fire resistance test. This test helps determine product certification, and sometimes is required  for approval of use in a particular project.  In simple terms, the test determines a product’s ability to resist fire damage.

A class A fire rating means that Rhino Shield ceramic coating is highly resistant to fire ignition.  How can we be so sure?

Top ASTM laboratories, including BASF Chemical Company and Atlas Material Testing Solutions, have run Rhino Shield ceramic coating through a gamut of tests to verify the extent of its durability. Full test reports are available upon request. They include the name of the testing lab, methods used, and complete results. Just call Georgia Coatings and ask for Rhino Shield’s test ASTM E 84-10b.

In extreme heat or drought conditions, an old treasure such as this 100 year old house in the deep South could become a tinderbox. It needs the superior protection of Rhino Shield ceramic coating.
