Concrete: Fire Retardant, No Toxic Fumes
When building these amazing structures and working on behalf of the public safety is of great importance. Naturally cement products are fire retardant and often times can spare disaster because of the fire resistant qualities of concrete.
In the event of a fire, concrete is the best option to slow down the rate at which a fire will spread allowing for emergency responders to contain damages and mitigate disaster.
In most cases Ontario Self Leveling Concrete products don’t require any additional fire protection. Cement is non-combustible and does not emit any toxic fumes when burned. Since concrete has a slow rate of heat absorption a fire can but for hours without compromising structural integrity.
Add 3 to 4 Hours of Fire Rating with Concrete Underlayment
All of Ontario Self Leveling Concrete products are designed to meet the International Building Codes (IBC) stringent fire rating standards. Concrete flooring can provide 1 to 2 hour additional fire rating even in wood framed structures and add 3 to 4 hours in concrete structures.
