Florida Gulf Coast University broke ground on the largest academic structure on-site in November of 2019. The $59.9 million building will be 4 stories and 117,000-sf. The new facility will provide 58,000 sf of research labs, 15,000 sf of teaching labs, and 23,400 sf of classrooms. The project will be the largest academic structure on FGCU’s campus. Fire Stop Systems, LLC, Isolatek International’s recognized applicator, installed CAFCO 400 AC, CAFCO FENDOLITE M-II, and CAFCO SprayFilm WB 5. Each product has individual and similar advantages. They have also undergone the most rigorous testing in accordance with the world’s most demanding safety protocols.
CAFCO FENDOLITE WB 5 enhances productivity on the job site and allows for greater wet-film thickness through increased hangability. CAFCO 400 AC / ISOLATEK Type 400 AC offers the most cost-effective fire resistance performance per unit thickness and the greatest productivity of any medium density SFRM. Less material is needed to achieve required fire ratings and also provides added value as a thermal insulator. CAFCO 400 AC / ISOLATEK Type 400 AC and CAFCO FENDOLITE M-II / ISOLATEK Type M-II are both designed to provide fire protection for structural steel and concrete where physical abuse or high traffic may be anticipated such as mechanical and electrical rooms or elevator shafts. CAFCO FENDOLITE M-II / ISOLATEK Type M-II lightweight formulation results in reduced dead loads (approximately one-third that of concrete) and is the easiest high-density fire protection material to install.
