The update to the national building regulations, South African National Standard (SANS) 10400 Part T: Fire Protection, provides the framework for application of national building regulations on fire protection to minimise starting of fires in building’s and that in the unfortunate event of fire, lives are saved, property protected, and fires prevented from spreading. It is essential to comply with these regulations to avoid safety and legal consequences.

Fire, it can cause untold damage to live and livelihoods. 

That’s why fire safety is a critical aspect of building design and construction and why, earlier this year, the South African National Bureau of Standards updated the national building regulations.

Saint-Gobain subsidiary, Isover is here to help with its glasswool products. Glasswool is non-combustible. It does not burn or spread flame. In addition to fire safety, Glasswool products are considered to be  highly effective insulation products available. Glasswool is produced from a combination of up to 80% recycled glass,  and fluxing agents, resulting in a product that has zero ozone-depleting potential (commonly referred to as ODP), and no chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) or hydrochlorofluorocarbons (HCFCs).
