In the ever-changing world of building construction and architecture, fire safety regulations are essential, requiring ongoing attention and innovation. As safety codes tighten and the penalties for non-compliance increase, the industry must keep up with current standards and anticipate future changes. This is where ARBOShield Pro comes in—a product that meets today’s fire safety demands and offers a solution for tomorrow’s evolving standards.
The Current State of Fire Safety Regulations
In light of events like the Grenfell Tower fire, current building regulations are closely examined. The outcome has been a call for products with higher safety ratings and stronger fire protection. Consequently, standards have risen, favouring materials that better resist and contain fires to safeguard lives and property. ARBOShield Pro leads the way, providing a top-level Class A fire rating.
The Class A Distinction of ARBOShield Pro
Class A-rated materials are incombustible, offering the highest fire resistance required by regulations. This rating is becoming the go-to for those seeking to comply with existing regulations and to future-proof buildings against updates to building codes. ARBOShield Pro’s External Perimeter Class A Membrane (EPAM) is unique in the UK market, boasting a Class A2-s1,d0 rating, putting it at the leading edge of fire-resistant technology.
Future-Proofing with High Standards
With building codes in flux, opting for the highest fire resistance is less optional and more obligatory. ARBOShield Pro is ahead of the curve, ready to meet even more stringent future standards. Its proactive compliance is a commitment to safety and a sustainable, long-term investment.
