Fire Protection For HVAC Systems

Cooling the conductivity

Preventing the passage of fire is a challenge in any building, but where HVAC services are in situ, the risk of fire spreading is heightened. The pipes and ducts which serve HVAC systems act as heat conductors which can lead to fire spreading to other compartments which might otherwise be adequately protected – a dangerous risk given HVAC is commonly installed in high rise and densely occupied buildings.  

To protect life and prevent the spread of fire in these scenarios, insulating HVAC pipes and ducts is essential – and using A1 or A2 ROCKWOOL stone wool offers the highest level of fire protection on the market. With a suite of solutions which accommodate pipes as well as round and rectangular ducts, ROCKWOOL HVAC insulation can provide up to two hour’ fire resistance.
