From 2005 to 2015, the number of commercial fires decreased by roughly 300,000. Although there are a variety of reasons for this, one is the advancement in passive fire protection systems like DuraWall™. In addition to an almost 20 percent drop in commercial fires, systems like this have helped lower the number of deaths and injuries by 3 and 8 percent, respectively.
While DuraWall™ panels are beneficial to any company, they are especially vital for industries that deal with potentially hazardous substances, as well as those that manufacture highly combustible materials. For instance, a company that makes paper or wood products needs more fire protection than others. Even a small fire can quickly spread, which is why installing a fire-resistant panel in different areas is so critical.
What Are DuraWall™ Panels?
These composite panels work by resisting fire and sound. They also help stop thermal transmission. Unlike other passive fire protection panels on the market, these have a highly innovative design built around a composite panel with a steel face, along with a high-density mineral fiber core with a non-combustible structure.
Using a male-female joint system, the edges of the panels fit snugly and firmly together. With a UL/ULC Listed fire rating up to two hours, the DuraWall™ panels stop the spread of fire, keep employees safe, and give local responders time to arrive on the scene to prevent total devastation. In fact, these panels work so well that most businesses experience only minor fire damage.
A key advantage of using this type of fire-resistant panel compared to others is its easy assembly and disassembly. Quickly and efficiently, you can either move the panels to a different location at your existing business or take them to an entirely different address. The little amount of time and effort it takes to install and uninstall these panels helps cut down on labor costs.
Since these boards are both Hydrochlorofluorocarbon and Ozone Depleting Potential free, making them environmentally sustainable, you may qualify for LEED credits. That combined with already affordable boards and the fact that they perform at a high level, there is no excuse for not installing them at your business.
