Some houses have floors that have heaters underneath them and these floors are often equipped with a lot of the calcium silicate board. This board is important to homes like these because they can absorb heat and keep the house from catching fire even when the heater is turned on maximum heat. Heavy duty boards of this kind can prevent fires at home even when the floor is subjected to heat ranging from 750 degrees to 1000 degrees Fahrenheit.
The calcium silicate board can be bought from any hardware store. This fireproof material which is important in fire prevention measures is not that difficult to find at all. Should you need this, you can drop by the hardware stores to look for them. You have to make sure to choose the board with the highest heat tolerance so that you can keep your home at its warmest while keeping yourself and your housemates safe from fires.
Why Choose to Use Refractory Ceramic?
Refractory ceramic can do wonders in preventing fire from starting in homes. If you can’t use the calcium silicate board in some delicate parts of your house that has a low threshold for resisting heat, you’ll need to use the customized refractory ceramic instead.
The ceramic can be formed according to the shape of that item or part of the house that needs to be fireproofed. This is the advantage that refractory ceramic has over the calcium silicate board. Aside from that, you can mix your own refractory cast or cement to create the ceramic. This may just save you money and time as there is no need for you to commission someone else, perhaps an expert, to coat the vulnerable parts of your home with refractory ceramic.
