What is Guardian SCR (Smoke Chamber Restoration)?
For the discerning clients that demand the utmost safety for their homes and families, the GUARDIAN Smoke Chamber Restoration (SCR) system is unsurpassed.
Through ceramic and refractory engineering and extensive research and development, the GUARDIAN S.C.R system is the most thoroughly tested and approved chimney restoration procedure to date.
How it works:
The GUARDIAN S.C.R cast-in-place process restores the critical smoke chamber area of a masonry chimney with only 1″ thickness. No other product has passed the stringent Underwriters Laboratory U.L. 2505 test at 1″ thickness.
The unique chemistry of the GUARDIAN S.C.R material provides the greatest thermal barrier available, protecting surrounding framing from dangerous levels of heat transfer.
With 1″ of GUARDIAN S.C.R material, combustible objects such as wall studs, floor joists, and roof trusses are permitted to be in direct contact with the exterior surfaces of the chimney smoke chamber.
Structural Fires from Poor Chimney Construction:
Additionally, the chemistry of the GUARDIAN S.C.R material and the method by which the system is installed dramatically increases the structural integrity of the entire smoke chamber area. The GUARDIAN S.C.R material actually penetrates into the smoke chamber walls creating an internal, reinforcing matrix binding the smoke chamber surfaces together.
Ideal for restoring corbelled and irregular smoke chamber walls, the GUARDIAN S.C.R system creates smooth interior walls that typically enhance the performance or draw of the fireplace. The GUARDIAN S.C.R system is also ideal when the flue is being relined with stainless steel. With the GUARDIAN S.C.R system, the transition from the smoke chamber into the new stainless steel flue is streamlined, again, creating an optimal performance of the fireplace.
Guardian S.C.R. Restoration:
Of equal importance, is how the GUARDIAN S.C.R process renders the smoke chamber compliant with the stringent 20018 International Residential Building Code for One and Two-Family Dwellings. This critical sanction protects your client and you—the contractor.
