Fire Safety

IMPROVED BUILDINGS, IMPROVED FIRE SAFETY

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.

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 entire building chain is driven by robust regulation. And that means designing the risk of fire out of buildings from the start.

Burning issue of buildings safety

New-build becomes increasingly innovative and renovation transforms the existing building landscape - It is vital that we don't miss an opportunity to make our building fire safe. 

Putting up a barrier to fire

An increasing number of European countries are demanding the introduction of fire barriers in buildings to improve fire safety – more countries need to follow their example
