Fire Resistance

Fire Resistance

CELCRETE AAC is non-combustible so in the event of a fire can help to prevent the spread of fire to other rooms.

During a fire no toxic gases or vapours are emitted from CELCRETE . Based on overseas testing CELCRETE AAC block construction provides a fire rating of 4 hours for a 150mm thick load bearing wall. Reinforced panels provide a fire rating of 4 hours for a 200mm thick panel. A 100mm thick wall panel without any additional finishing materials achieves a rating of 3 hours.

These ratings are in excess of those required for residential or normal commercial buildings.
