  • Factory fireproofing (in-shop labor eliminates need for field labor to apply other forms of fireproofing)
  • Consistent quality by our in-shop factory professionals
  • Adding increased durability and ruggedness unavailable with other forms of fireproofing, which drastically reduces long-term maintenance costs
  • Increased production times
  • Predictable scheduling as Black Rock Fireproof Columns are delivered to site complete and ready for erection

  • Added security and confidence of working with an AISC-certified structural fireproof column fabricator

Since its beginnings, Black Rock has focused on product reliability. The company knows architects and engineers need complete confidence in the structural products they specify – which is why Black Rock only uses steel, concrete and vermiculite that meet or exceed UL regulations and client specifications.
