Fire

Reducing the risk of fire is a high priority for Saint-Gobain. Therefore we offer a range of solutions that increase fire safety in buildings.

Saint-Gobain offers glazing that is both heat and flame retardant.

Personal Safety

It is the threat of fire that poses one of the greatest risks to people in the built environment. Since human wellbeing and safety is a top priority for Saint-Gobain we will naturally ensure that your building has excellent security solutions in the event that a fire breaks out.

Saint-Gobain’s materials and solutions will help you to construct buildings that are built according to fire legislation.

This is also important in instances where legislation requires that the fire safety of a building must be observed and documented. Saint-Gobain’s materials and solutions will help you to construct buildings that are built in direct accordance with such fire legislation.

Fire safety precautions have to be integrated into every corner of a building, and Saint-Gobain offers products that maximize fire security from basement to roof. Right from the start of a construction proces, the foundations can be laid using fire resistant products such as the non-flammable Leca blocks provided by Weber.

Facades can be made fire resistant with special panes from Vetrotech while the inside of buildings can employ plasterboard from Gyproc to meet requirements for fire-rated building elements and surfaces. Such plasterboard can also be used for fire protection of existing structures. Furthermore insulation solutions from ISOVER are not just designed to keep interiors warm, but can also be used in fire-proofing walls as the insulation is made of glass wool, a substance which is nonflammable.
