Better safe than sorry
Maintaining safety in the event of a fire is of crucial importance. In some buildings, this may involve compartmentalisation, which inevitably affects the facade. If a fire can jump through the outside air from one compartment to another within a certain time, the facade must be made fire-resistant. IBS provides you with the right expertise to adapt building compartmentalisation into practical fire safety solutions for facades.
Our expertise involves making sure that the tested products and systems are used within their design constraints in order to avoid creating a false suggestion of fire safety through the use of incompatible combinations of materials, products and dimensions.
- Our expertise includes:
- Practical translation of fire safety standards into facade products and systems;
- Verification application of product test reports;
- Fire-resistant glazing;
- Detail design of joints between facades and fire-resistant walls/floors.
