Non-combustible solutions are a hot topic
Non-combustible, fire-resistant solutions help inhibit fire spread, maintain structural integrity and limit the spread of fire and smoke, providing safe buildings for occupants and added peace of mind for project specifiers. Gen-Eco Environmental Wood Products can provide numerous non-combustible solutions.
What does non-combustible mean?
According to the Building Code of Australia (BCA), non-combustible means:
- Applied to a material – not deemed combustible as determined by AS 1530.1 – Combustibility Tests for Materials; and
- Applied to construction or part of a building – constructed wholly of materials that are not deemed to be combustible.
