Installation Process : Complete Room
Primarily in structures with load bearing walls, it might be prudent to protect all walls, ceilings and floors, as shown below.
Installation Process : Ceiling
Generally, the ceiling is the first to be lined in a burn room. A 1″ thick insulation panel is attached directly to the ceiling and then completely enclosed by System 203’s unique interlocking castings. This system protects the structure from water, heat and thermal shock.
Shown here is a partially completed ceiling with the insulation panel still exposed.
Employees install System 203 on the ceiling of a burn room.
Installation Process : Walls
Walls are also protected with System 203. Note that, in the pictures shown, each 12″ square casting of System 203 is secured with a stainless steel bolt.
This cross-section shows how the casting is anchored to the structure.
An employee drills into the structure in order to attach the casting with a stainless steel bolt.

Installation Process : Rollover
Rollover protection is utilized on exterior areas around doors and windows. This area is not normally considered when lining a burn building.
As you can see, fire training evolutions are not always contained within the structure.
