JT THORPE’s Shop Fireproofing Process
Our shop fireproofing facilities implement a uniquely developed process that allows the different fireproofing application steps to move as an assembly line while the steel stays in the same location. Our unique process provides the safest approach to maximizing production and quality on individual stick members and pre-assembled modular frames.
JT THORPE utilizes a proprietary tracking system that allows for a full integration of quality control, production tracking and location of steel in real time. JT THORPE relies on our QC program and NACE technicians to ensure every item meets project specifications before passing the hold points and advancing to production.
