Fire Performance

Innovative Solutions For Fire Performance

Regarding fire safety, non-combustibility or the ability to resist catching fire, is key. Building materials installed in building systems must not ignite and react to fire prior to flashover; otherwise, they will only accelerate the fire and limit the amount to time that occupants have to evacuate.

Fiberglass is naturally noncombustible, so it requires no additional chemical treatments, and remains so for the life of the product. Fiberglass comes in a variety of forms from batts to blown-in to meet the toughest building codes and customer demands. Ideal for new build, retrofit or remodel.

 

Naturally noncombustible, unfaced Sustainable Insulation requires no chemical additives to provide optimum fire protection and is recognized by building code groups as an acceptable fire stop in residential wood-frame walls.

Installing OPTIMA in MidFloor applications provides high-quality, easy to install fire protection that meets NFPA 13 standards allowing it to be used in conjunction with sprinklers or to replace sprinklers in buildings 5 stories or less.
