Cities with natural fire resilience built-in
In land-scarce urban areas, more and more people are working and making their homes in high-rise buildings. These structures can help meet the challenge of safely housing a growing population. But if a fire strikes in a high-rise, the consequences can be very serious.
ROCKWOOL insulation is fire resilient by nature with no added chemical flame retardants.
Capable of withstanding temperatures of over 1000 C, it works to contain fire and prevent its spread. At the same time, it does not contribute to the emission of significant quantities of toxic smoke. From apartment blocks to skyscrapers, from industrial facilities to schools and hospitals, the natural qualities of stone help us build sustainable and safe cities, full of fire safe buildings.
