Improving fire resilience
A building’s primary function is to protect us from the outside environment. But buildings are more than just a protective shell. They are essential elements of society providing the spaces we need to live. Therefore ensuring buildings are fire resilient is essential to protecting people, property and the spaces we live our lives.

Improving fire resilience

Fire resilience

The fire performance of buildings needs to be an essential part of defining sustainable and resilient cities

Our insulation solutions ensure optimal fire resilience. This means that when a fire does occur, it is more likely to be contained in the area where it started while giving people valuable extra time to safely evacuate the building and fire fighters more time to extinguish it. These fire resilient properties remain consistent over the lifetime of our products.

A fire develops 5 – 10 times faster in a living room with modern furnishings compared to the typical living room furnished as it would have been in the 1950s.

We are committed to improving energy efficiency in your buildings with our innovative and high performance solutions and products.
