Fire resilient stone wool insulation can slow the spread of fire, which can make the difference between a fire in a building and a building on fire.

Fire safety

Our insulation is a key component in fire-resilient buildings as its stone wool fibres are inherently non-combustible and can resist temperatures up to 1,000º C. This is crucial to containing a fire locally and securing that a fire in a building will not become a building on fire. With minimal organic content, ROCKWOOL insulation will not produce any signficant toxic smoke.

ROCKWOOL can provide guidance on fire regulations and the appropriate methods of contruction in a variety of building types. Learn more about fire safety in buildings by reading our blogs below.

What happens in a fire

All fires require three elements: a source of ignition, combustible materials, and oxygen.

Smoke kills more people than fire

Toxic smoke inhalation causes more fire-related deaths than do the fires themselves.

Euroclasses

The European Reaction to Fire classification system (Euroclasses) is the EU common standard for assessing the qualities of building materials in the event of a fire.

ROCKWOOL stone wool insulation tolerates temperatures of up to 1000°C and has been awarded the highest possible European classification: A1 non-combustible, it provides vital fire protection in buildings, keeping people safe, as well as minimising damage to valuable assets.
