BE SAFE

Trimo wants buildings to be comfortable and to be safe. Fire safety in buildings is a broad concept that refers to protecting people, animals, property and places, as well as the environment, from the often devastating effects of fire and deadly smoke.

  • 50% of the fire deaths are due to inhalation of smoke and toxic combustion gases only.
  • More than 4,000 deaths and 70,000 hospitalizations every year due to fire and smoke related injuries - that’s nearly 200 people every day.
  • 126 billion € equivalent to 1% of European GDP is eaten up by fire damage each year.

FIRE Test

Building products with different insulation cores are available in the construction market such as mineral wool and foams. Their fire resistance and their performance to fire vary significantly

Choosing products whose core is non-combustible is a certain way of ensuring that they do not contribute to a flashover in a fire and will not significantly increase fire intensity at any stage.

REAL FIRE SITUATION

The tests show that in a real fire situation sandwich panels vary in performance depending upon the core type and that PUR and PIR sandwich panels produce substantial amounts of toxic smoke.

From left to right: polyurethane (PUR), mineral wool (MW), polyisocyanurate (PIR) sandwich panels.
