Fire Barrier Principles: Part 1


  • Correctly installed fire barriers will limit the amount of oxygen available, prohibiting the spread of flame and extending evacuation times.
  • Most domestic fires are caused by avoidable human action such as: smoking, cooking, arson, etc.
  • Very difficult to reduce or influence through design and construction.


We can reduce the amount of combustible building products. Fire barriers are manufactured from non-combustible, rock mineral wool insulation.
