Passive Fire Protection

Protecting people, equipment and infrastructure from fire can be a challenge, focusing on fire prevention rather than firefighting, is the best way to reduce risk and protect your most valuable assets. Utilizing a combination of fire prevention solutions will provide the greatest fire prevention and risk reducing strategy.


Engineered rubber tile used to protect any surface from fire, heavy impact and corrosion

Vikodeck® is manufactured using Vipo’s Firestop rubber material, withstanding severe temperatures and corrosion. Vikodeck® is used mainly as surface protection, protecting people, surfaces and vital equipment during exposure to hydrogen, jet-fire and cellulose fire.

The engineered rubber tile provides:

  • Heavy impact resistance
  • Sound and noise damping
  • Corrosion protection
  • Jet and hydrocarbon fire resistant
  • Quick and easy installation
  • Resistance against ozone, UV light and process liquids


Firenut and Belt

Tailored rubber protection for bolted connections

In case of fires, flanges and pipes should maintain the same level of integrity to avoid escalation. Firenut has been engineered to provide jet-fire protection for bolted connections, extending service life in event of a fire.

The fire resistant rubber nut provides:

  • Tailored to fit any shape or size
  • Maintenance free
  • Hand mounted
  • Jet and hydrocarbon fire resistant
  • Quick installation
  • Weight and space saving
  • Allows for easy system inspection
  • Rigid and durable design


Drain Gullies

Drainage and waste disposal system used to maintain fire barriers and redirect liquid spillages away from decks 

Our drain gullies withstand movement in all directions, absorbing building tolerances. They eliminate concentrations of stress, allowing spillages to drain efficiently. These drainage and waste disposal systems are commonly used in offshore platforms and buildings to re-route liquid spillages on decks, allowing them to be disposed in a safe and sustainable manner.

These fire resistant, rubber drain gullies provide:

  • High abrasion resistance
  • Reduced vibration
  • High impact resistance
  • Quick and easy installation
  • Corrosion free
  • Blast, hydrocarbon and jet-fire resistance
  • High mechanical protection



Jet and hydrocarbon fire resistant, easy to install, extends service life of electric cables and hoses in a case of a fire

Elastoshield’s robust and rugged design provides additional protection against mechanical damage and is designed for ultimate performance in critical areas.

This highly resistant shield provides:

  • Tailored specifications
  • Durable protection against corrosion, fire and wear
  • Maintenance free

Fire Seals

A wide-ranging family of engineered sealing products with weather and fire integrity functionality

Our fire seals are flexible seal connections between rigid metal sections, capable of handling large displacements and absorbing misalignments and angular deviations. The fire seals maintain fire barriers and are available in a variety of standard options. They can also be tailormade designed for special situations. Choose from pipe penetration, sealing between structures and modules, escape tunnel seals for safety, or seals to protect essential equipment such as bearings and valves.

These flexible rubber seals provide:

  • High abrasion resistance
  • Robust and impact resistant
  • Absorbs vibrations and reduces noise transfer
  • Protection against jet-fires, corrosion, impact and blasts
  • No hot work required
  • Tailored specifications to suit individual project requirements

Pipe Penetration Seals

Flexible rubber based seals protecting pipes at the penetration location 

Pipe penetration seals are prefabricated flexible seals, made from layers of durable materials. The seals are tailormade to accommodate most structures and geometries.  Focusing on protecting the pipe at the penetration location, the seals allow movement of the pipe during operation.

These fire resistant, flexible seals provide:

  • Slim and lightweight
  • Maintenance free
  • Hydrocarbon, jet and 350kWm² fire resistant
  • Blast tested
  • No hot work required when installing
  • Fire, mechanical and wear protection
  • Tailormade to specifications


Riser Protection

Firestop passive fire protection material coating to protect risers offshore 

Our passive fire protection for risers significantly delays escalation of temperature rise in flexible risers, providing time to evacuate people and protect critical equipment.

The rubber materials used to protect risers provide:

  • Temperature range from -50oC to 155oC
  • Jet and hydrocarbon resistant
  • Helps to maintain flexibility of the riser
  • Fatigue tested by SINTEF
  • High abrasion resistance
  • Application on site
  • Maintenance free
