Rhino Shield Boasts ‘Best In Class’ Fire Rating

Table of Contents

Ensuring the safety of your home extends beyond security systems and well-lit landscapes. A fundamental aspect often overlooked is the fire rating of your exterior coating. In this regard, Rhino Shield stands as a game-changer. With its recent formula upgrade, Rhino Shield proudly offers its class’s best fire-rated architectural coating, boasting a score of 5 — a top performer in Class A.

Why Fire Ratings Matter

Fire ratings aren’t just technical jargon. They are crucial determinants of your home’s resistance to fire. The higher the fire rating, the greater the safety. Fire ratings are determined by testing how materials react to fire, specifically how quickly fire will catch and spread across the surface. The test also looks at the amount of smoke produced.

Rhino Shield’s Exceptional Fire Rating

At Rhino Shield, safety is paramount. We’ve raised the bar in fire resistance with a recent formula upgrade that enhances our impressive fire rating.

The standard test for the surface burning characteristics of building products is ASTM-E84, which measures the flame spread index. For a product to qualify as Class A, the highest fire safety rating, it must score between 0 and 25. Our Rhino Shield coating proudly scored a 5, placing it in the top quintile.

Moreover, tests on the upgraded exterior coating showed a remarkable 70% increase in time to ignition compared to the pre-upgrade formula. In the unfortunate event of a home fire, your home has extra time before the fire spreads safety during a fire incident. This extra time could be the difference in the fire department showing up to prevent a catastrophe.

The Benefits of An Exterior Paint With High Fire Rating

Rhino Shield’s exceptional fire rating isn’t just a mere technical advantage. It’s a feature that offers tangible benefits for homeowners:

  • Increased Safety: The primary advantage of a high fire rating is, without a doubt, increased safety. Fire can spread rapidly, but with a fire-resistant coating like Rhino Shield, the rate of flame spread is significantly reduced. This slow-burning can prevent minor incidents from escalating into major disasters, ensuring your home and loved ones stay safe.
  • Cost Savings: While the initial investment might be higher than regular paint, the long-term financial benefits are substantial. In the unfortunate event of a fire, a slower flame spread could equate to less damage and, thus, less costly repairs or replacements. Investing in Rhino Shield is a cost-effective decision in the long run.
  • Peace of Mind: The mere thought of a home fire is distressing. However, knowing your home is equipped with a Class A fire-rated coating provides unparalleled peace of mind. It means you can rest easy, knowing your home has an added layer of protection against fire disasters.
  • Aesthetics and Durability: Rhino Shield offers all these safety benefits without compromising the aesthetics and durability our coatings are known for. You don’t have to choose between safety and beauty with Rhino Shield – you get both! Our coatings are available in various colors and finishes to suit every style and preference.
