Elevating Fire Resilient Design with Passive House Principles | ROCKWOOL Component Spotlight

cs rockwool 011024

As we see an increase of extreme climate events and extreme conditions in general, passive house principles go hand in hand with the resiliency of buildings and one of the key principles is fire mitigation efforts.

This Component Spotlight presentation with ROCKWOOL examines the fire properties of products used in the built environment and the fire resistance and performance of assemblies. We connect use of stone wool insulation in the built environment as a thermal and acoustic barrier to it’s fire resilient properties in assemblies, concluding with a short overview of the key principals of designing buildings in WUI areas (and areas of increased risk of fire) and how those principals relate to passive house construction.
