Types of Fire Safe Membrane
If you are a homeowner or builder looking for a fire safe membrane, there are several things you should know before you start your project. First, you need to choose the type of fire safe membrane that will best protect your building. There are several types of fire safe membrane available, including DuPont FireCurb, Effisus FR Membrane, IKO secura waterproofing system, and Treated cellulose insulation.
A roof membrane is a highly durable, fire-safe material that is made from a patented self-extinguishing polymer. Its unique halogen-free coating reduces the formation of water droplets and retards the spread of flame. This patented material is certified to meet or exceed current fire safety regulations.
A new patented flame retardant breather membrane by DuPont. The material’s high flame retardancy allows it to achieve Euroclass B, or EN13501-1. Its halogen-free coating also limits smoke and droplets, making it perfect for use in buildings. In addition, this fire-safe material is airtight and watertight.
The FR membrane is a combustible-free, fire-resistant membrane. It is highly effective for protecting buildings from wind, dampness and driving rain. It has a wide range of properties and is designed to be used in a variety of applications.
This membrane is ideal for facades. Its fibreglass base offers high fire resistance. Its fire-resistance class is A2-s1,d0. It is suitable for open joints and combines with a wide range of Effisus accessories. It is also certified according to EN 13859:2.
Secura waterproofing system
The Secura waterproofing system is fire resistant thanks to the use of a special bitumen membrane. Its single layer construction is self-adherent to ensure fast installation and long-term durability. It is suitable for both green roofs and flat roofs, and it has the added benefit of being able to recover grey water from roofs.
The fire resistant membrane is a self-adhering membrane used over a wide range of roof decks. Its composition is modified SBS asphalt with a top layer of high density cross laminated polyethylene film. Unlike other waterproofing membranes, IKO Secura doesn’t have to be reapplied every few years, so it is ideal for long-term protection. The fire resistant membrane also comes in a sand top surface, which makes it suitable for outdoor application.
Treated cellulose insulation
Treated cellulose insulation is fire safe, but not entirely. The cellulose insulation has been treated with chemicals that make it fire resistant. Fiberglass, on the other hand, is naturally fire-retardant. Its dense material limits the amount of oxygen available to burn. Thus, it prevents walls from deteriorating into draft-chambers.
However, cellulose can hide partially extinguished fires and can reignite embers to start a new fire. Additionally, because it burns at a low temperature, it doesn’t register on thermal scans. As a result, it’s very difficult to completely extinguish a fire if it has cellulose insulation.
Treated cellulose insulation provides a higher fire resistance than fiberglass, giving occupants more time to get out in case of a fire. It also significantly restricts the amount of oxygen available for combustion. In addition to its superior fire safety properties, cellulose is also an exceptional thermal and acoustical insulator.
Fire same membrane
FSM fire safe membrane is designed to provide comprehensive protection against fires in buildings. Using patented technology, the fire retardant membrane stops the spread of flame and reduces smoke. Designed to be lightweight and durable, housewrap also contributes to the energy efficiency of buildings.
fire safe membrane combines the highest standards of fire protection and sustainability. The brand is recognized internationally and is marketed in 35 European countries and many other regions. The company achieved CE certification for its product in 2005.
designed to slow and prevent flame spread between floors. It also limits flame spread through the external envelope, which offers improved safety for occupants and fire fighters. This fire safe membrane also reduces the cost and damage associated with fires.
