Over 15,000m2 of Promat’s Cafco MANDOLITE® CP2 has been used to provide a robust fire protection system for the steel frame structure of Dublin’s new Point Village shopping centre.
Cafco MANDOLITE® CP2 is a spray-applied, single package, factory-controlled premix of vermiculite
and Portland cement. It produces a monolithic coating that withstands the thermal shocks created in high-intensity cellulosic fires and this provides highly effective protection against concrete spalling.
Structures protected with Cafco MANDOLITE® CP2 can benefit from up to 240 minutes of fire resistance. Despite being low in density and so significantly reducing dead load, Cafco MANDOLITE® CP2 is highly durable and will not crack or spall under mechanical impact. It releases no toxic or hazardous fumes and presents no known health hazards either before, during, or after application.
The city centre Point Village development is set to be a world class business and cultural hub, with Dublin
’s premier entertainment venue, The O2, located at its heart.
Situated next to the new National Conference Centre the Point Village will be served by a new LUAS light railway station.
