Urbanization brings new challenges to the building sector
In land-scarce urban areas, more and more people are working in high-rise buildings. These structures can be brilliant solutions to the challenge of safely supporting growing cities. But if a fire strikes in a high rise, the consequences can be very serious.
Stone wool works to resist fire and prevent its spread. At the same time, it does not contribute to the emission of significant quantities of toxic smoke. From single-story structures to skyscrapers, from high-volume medical centers to busy schools, the natural qualities of stone are helping us build sustainable and safe cities, full of fire-resilient buildings.
