Fire safety

In case of fire, insulated panels function as a catenary structure. Therefore, when designing fire-resistant structures, it needs to be ensured that he whole structure meets the requirements on stability, insulation and tightness. Our non-combustible insulated panels, are classified in Euroclass A2-s1,d0 and structural stone wool cores in Euroclass A1. PAROC insulated panels meet the requirements for fire resistance up to four hours in walls and up to one hour in ceilings.

What happens in case of fire?

It is also important to transfer loads, for example from roof structures, down to the bearing structure. 

When designing fire-resistant structures, select the correct PAROC insulated panels along with the right details in order to meet fire requirements. Paroc Panel System provides a range of approved detail solutions to guarantee the function of panel structures.

Penetrations

In fire partitioning structures, penetrations have to fulfil the same fire rating as the structure. They must be tight enough and prevent heat transmission from the hot side to the cold side. The insulation of the penetration is made with non-combustible stone wool.
