IMPROVED BUILDINGS, IMPROVED FIRE SAFETY

      

Knauf Insulation offers a wide range of A1 and A2 fire-safe insulation products for every building requirement from ThermoShell and ETICS rock-based systems to Glass Mineral Wool with ECOSE Technology to Heraklith, MineralPlus and Rock Mineral Wool Slabs.

But it is not enough to offer fire-safe solutions. As the built environment changes, new products and materials are installed and new innovative construction methods are showcased, particularly in the light of new energy-saving regulations, we believe it is critical that the decisions taken to improve a building don’t compromise its fire resistance.

By working with organisations such as Fire Safe Europe and a wide range of construction experts and industry partners, we are working to highlight dangerous discrepancies in fire safety regulations across Europe with policy-makers.

We have also supported research into the impact that new thermal building regulations are having on safety and has raised concerns that testing protocol are not as robust as they should be. We firmly believe they should be improved to reflect the impact of real fire performance.
