Why firesafe buildings are sustainable
Of course, improving fire safety in buildings is primarily about protecting people. Still, there’s a lot more to take into consideration here. Building in a firesafe way also highly contributes to a sustainable world.
A major aspect of sustainability is limiting the use of new valuable resources. In the building industry, this is not only a matter of recycling and upcycling as much as possible, but it’s also about building for the long term. When you build or renovate a building, it’s important to make it as futureproof as possible, for example by looking at energy efficiency and fire safety.
If a building is not firesafe, there’s a significant risk of it burning down completely during a fire. In that case, valuable resources are lost. When building in a responsible and firesafe way, you can design out the risks. That’s why using non-combustible building materials such as Rockpanel is a sustainable choice.
