Promat UK (Part of Etex Industry) is a leading manufacturer of passive fire protection and thermal insulation products and systems for a variety of industrial applications. Promat has a proven track record of collaboration with partners to deliver innovative solutions to the market.

Promat worked with a leading manufacturer of drainage systems and recessed access covers. Having been very successful in the Middle East, the company secured their first order for fire rated access covers installed throughout the Lusail City LRT project; a visionary tram line development currently under construction in Qatar.

Owing to vast technical knowledge and expertise, Promat UK assisted in developing fire protection for hatches, some of which were up to 4.5 m long. The final design successfully passed the stringent fire test, B125 load class in accordance with EN124 at the very first attempt.

In total, Promat supplied almost 1000m2 of non-combustible PROMATECT® H Calcium silicate boards and over 1.6 km of PROMASEAL® intumescent seals for a variety of hatches, including hydraulic and emergency hatches.
