Passive fire protection can save lives
Optimally equipped with Fire-teK®
Fire can quickly become life-threatening.
Regulations for the passive fire protection of buildings are intended to prevent the spread of fire, smoke and gases as much as possible.
Our Mineral Wool Fire-teK® products are non-combustible by nature and heat resistant up to temperatures of 1000 °C, and are therefore ideally suited for use in preventative fire protection.
The evacuation of the building’s occupants has to be performed before the flashover, allowing a safety margin to ensure their protection.
When it comes to the ability of any insulation material to withstand fire, two key factors are the material’s reaction to fire performance and its fire resistance. For safety reasons, it is crucial to understand the difference between them.
Larger buildings are frequently divided into so-called fire compartments, which are separated by fire-resistant walls and ceilings. In the event of a fire, these elements offer complete fire and smoke resistance based on the prescribed fire resistance.
In case of fire, the extraction of smoke and the limit of the spread of fire and smoke through the ventilation system is key.
