What do I need to know about Knauf Exterior Wall fire protection?

|   Exterior

Preventive structural fire protection has to meet the following planning and construction requirements:

  • Fire risk is reduced if as many non-flammable building materials as possible are used.
  • In the event of a fire, people within the building must be able to leave the building safely. The required fire resistance protection required for each type of building is in most countries regulated.
  • The construction must be such that its structure remains stable sufficiently long in the event of fire, and prevents spread of fire and smoke to other buildings or other parts of the building for long enough.
  • The behavior of AQUAPANEL® Cement Board Outdoor constructions in the event of a fire has been proven by extensive fire tests.
