Fire Mitigation for timber frame during construction

FIRE MITIGATION

IWS products are compliant with the new guidance launched by the Structural Timber Association (STA) which was designed to help clients, designers and CDM coordinators

 

CATEGORY A,B AND C

The guidance focuses principally on separating distances between a receiver (existing building) and emitter (new timber frame building) and has established how wide these distances need to be to mitigate the fire risk through newly defined practices

ON SITE PHASE

One of the principle benefits of timber frame construction is it’s speed of erection and ability to significantly reduce manual handling of materials on site and working at height, therefore limiting the risk of injury to site staff.

HOW WE CAN HELP YOU

We have developed a system (IWS-FAST) that helps protect the timber frame during the construction stage. Once the building is complete, the system will sit dormant for the life of the building and will still react in the case of a future fire
