Protecting the lives of buildings’ occupants is the number one priority during a construction or renovation. Fire resilient insulation, made from non-combustible materials, slows down the spread of fire, containing it within one compartment of a building for designed fire periods.
This allows valuable time for occupants to escape during a fire, creating a safer environment for firefighters to combat the fire and rescue people. It also helps to contain a fire and reduce potential widespread damage to the building.
Buildings should be designed and take into consideration the minimum requirements of the approved fire safety standards set out to meet UK regulatory requirements.
