Limiting the spread of fire

Due to the increased use of synthetic materials, fires today develop six times faster than in the 1950's. And with over 3.7 million fires happening in cities worldwide every year, it’s never been more important to source materials for your building design that doesn’t contribute to the spread of fire.

Luckily, our stone wool acoustic panels have a very low calorific content, which makes them certifiably non-combustible and able to minimize fire from spreading via their surface to other materials. This is the reason our products receive the best reaction to fire class certificate and guarantees an ideal component of safe, healthy, fire resilient buildings

Fire resistance vs fire resilience

Resistance? Resilience? Aren’t they the same thing? Fire resistance is how well a material withstands burning, while resilience refers to the ability of the building to continue functioning after the fire has stopped.

By having a non-combustible ceiling, the risk of a fire spread is reduced and therefore it can help minimize the damage to the building. Our stone wool solutions can offer both. It not only delays the spread of fire and can save lives, but it also decreases fire-related damages and environmental, societal and financial impacts.

Low smoke toxicity

Although fires can make us think of flames and heat, the real danger is toxic smoke. In fact, inhalation of toxic smoke is the biggest cause of fire-related casualties (1). High concentrations of toxic smoke create a hazardous environment that can also make it harder for people to escape fire.

Certain materials produce much more toxic smoke than others, depending on the type and the amount of organic content. Fortunately, our stone wool ceiling tiles have very low organic content and produce very little smoke.
