Few architectural elements are more basic or important than columns. Columns support building loads, while imparting spaces with a human scale. When designing an enclosed steel and concrete parking garage in the City of Boston, we specified Fire Trol fireproof columns for their durability, fire resistance, and aesthetically pleasing smooth outer shell. The open floor plan garage, with a central row of bright-colored columns, makes Fire Trol columns a central feature and organizing element of the garage. Fire resistance and impact resistance were achieved with columns that visually energize the space.
We used Fire Trol fireproof columns in the main lobby spaces of the renovated Platt High School in Meriden, CT. They looked great and solved our fireproofing issues perfectly.
We were very happy with the Fire Trol Fireproof Columns we used at the Taconic High School Project. They eliminated the need for messy Intumescent Paint that would otherwise have been required on the exposed columns. The use of the Fire Trol Fireproof Columns allowed our schedule to be expedited, without having to go back to fireproof the columns and it resulted in cost efficiencies eliminating the need for expensive Intumescent Painting.
FIRE TROL column division was great to work with on our 2020 projects. The projects each had multiple sequences and the FIRE TROL columns were designed with various sizes and connection details. Final fabrication was completed per plans and specifications and deliveries were right on time. We would not hesitate to work with FIRE TROL in the future and would recommend them to any one in need of FIRE TROL columns.
I have found it, to be my great pleasure, to have worked with your company. The Fire Trol columns were delivered on time and found to be correct in every way. The entire staff, always anxious to work through any design, or logistical issue, that arose during the project. I would not hesitate to work with Fire Trol, on any project, the future may bring.
