The former paint that had been originally used was often ignited by a rubbish Fire in the stairway when the currents in the stair were just right depending on what doors were open above & below......the time shortly after Christmas was especially problematic as Christmas trees were sometime lit in a stairway providing an intense start & the paint took over.....after awhile there was a citywide remediation of the old paint.

Seems odd that no bids were received. There are a number of cities that do use them. Baltimore, Philadelphia and cities on the west coast to say the least plus a number of smaller departments.
The FDNY's super extensive warranty requirements could be the reason. It has discouraged some bidders in the past.
