The Ultimate in Lightweight

        Marine Passive Fire Protection System

PROMAGUARD from
Soundown is a new
concept in passive fire
protection applying
microporous insulation
technology. Thanks to its
exclusive engineered
mineral matrix, PROMAGUARD
features unique benefits and
provides many direct
advantages with weight
savings of up to 3 times
lower than conventional
solutions and materials
making the panels ideal
for applications on high
speed vessels.
PROMAGUARD has been
designed to meet SOLAS,
IMO & MCA standards for
passive fire protection.
PROMAGUARD is the
Solution for all insulating
and fire protection systems
for bulkheads and

deckheads on aluminum,
GRP and steel structures
requiring both extremely
lightweight and thin
insulation.

PROMAGUARD provides
the lowest conductivity
compared to conventional
materials, as illustrated in
the graphic. As a result,
10mm of PROMAGUARD
provides the same heat
loss and insulation as
approximately 50mm of
fibrous materials
(depending on density
and temperature).
At 2.4Kg/m2, 10mm-thick
PROMAGUARD provides
the lightest possible weight
panel as part of an A60
class fire rated system.
