The Challenge: This gorgeous building, with all the Canadian Red Cedar beams placed all around it as you can see, was assembled without any fire protection at all. The fire marshall rightly refused to allow the school to open unless all the cedar beams were treated to protect the students.
The Solution: NexGen ADVANCED. At NexGen, we received the urgent call from the developer and told them that yes, we could work with them to remove, treat, and replace every beam on the building to ensure safety. The developer loved that our coatings would not change the appearance of the wood in any way - and they loved the price too! One-fifth of what other fire protective coatings would have cost them.
The building is now open and hundreds of students go there everyday, probably unaware that extraordinary steps were taken to make sure they would always be safe.
