Preventing towering inferno’s
High risk buildings, such as skyscrapers, hospitals etc. are divided in fire compartments. In case of fire, a fire compartment must hold the fire at least 2 hours to avoid the spread of fire and to give people enough time to escape. To accomplish fire proof compartments, the joints and seams between fire compartments must be sealed in a fire proof manner. This sealing, called a passive fire protection, is crucial to prevent fire from spreading.
FIRETIGHT® is a passive fire protection for building details that are the most vulnerable in general. In the comparison on this page you can see why FIRETIGHT® should be the standard in every building.
