Fire Safety of Insulated Metal Panels




The basis for passive fire protection in fire safety regulation, particularly in US codes, is that all products used in construction must comply with some appropriate fire test suitable for the application. This recognizes that the key means to ensure fire safety is to assess the way in which a product performs in a fire situation rather than to use requirements based on composition, particularly composition of product components (such as non-combustibility). US codes also tend to require that the fire tests incorporate every one of the components of composite products, with the same layout as the product to be used in the field, instead of testing individual components only.
