Bradford Fireseal range offers Rockwool fire protection insulation products specifically designed to meet the BCA fire requirements, as well as Bushfire Attack Level (BAL) rated products for bush fire prone areas. Party walls are designed to reduce fire hazards by separating one dwelling from another to provide the building occupants with the maximum time to escape safely by maintaining sufficient structural adequacy, integrity and insulation. There are principally 3 key areas for reducing fire hazards:
- Controlling fire within a compartment
- Controlling the spread of fire between compartments through openings in external walls
- Providing early warning to building occupants
The incorporation of the correct insulation products in the design of passive fire protection systems can save lives and also complement the installation of active fire protection equipment (i.e. sprinkler systems and fire alarms).
