The AlphaGen A-1 Fire Wrap
The A-1 Fire Wrap When the fires hit, more than one pole is usually destroyed The cost of replacement of an average wooden pole is $3,000 to $4,500 in urban areas, sometimes tripled in remote areas. AlphaGen’s coating prevents both damage and waste of funds.
The A-1 Fire Wrap Coatings and fire retardant chemicals have not been successful in the past Many have caused environmental problems. AlphaGen ’ s wrap is the answer. Power Poles in Danger by major fire
Material Testing Evaluating the Results
What is the A-1 Fire Wrap -A manufactured component designed to resist sunlight, impact, graffiti, theft, and above all: fire -It expands to many times its original thickness producing a stable, fibrous, insulation char.
Installation Complete Easy Installation
Fabrication Production lengths of 5 ’, 10 ’ and 12 ’ Diameters: 10 thru18 ” Thickness: 30 – 60 mils Custom sizes available
Specifications For wood, FRP and concrete poles Fire rating: –Standard: 30 minutes to 1 hour –Extended times available for custom wraps Temperature rating 2200° F Corrosion resistant UV and weather resistant Expected life: 25 years
A-1 Fire Wrap Designed to protect utility poles in remote areas where brush or forest fires are prevalent. When fire occurs the cover is expended but the pole is unaffected. Old cover is removed and replaced. Cover can be applied to piping, ducting, and various structures that might be exposed to fire conditions. Wrap Applied No Damage 1 Hour Later
Conclusion Cover is lightweight and cost effective Provides fire protection and offers protection from vermin, weathering and woodpeckers Can be easily removed for inspection, climbing or field work
Light weight and can be easily transported to remote sites Wrap shape facilitates ease of installation Cover is installed after pole is in place Environmentally acceptable
