Anchor Fire-Retardant Flush Doors

Fire: A Dreaded Phenomenon

Fire, which burns down everything, has always been a dreaded phenomenon. . In the earliest days of evolution of human life, fire, along with other natural forces, indeed, terrified man. In due course man started worshipping fire.

Millions of years later, today, the civilized man can proudly boast of having tamed the monstrous fire to serve him. Fire propels most of his inventions from steam engines to spacecrafts. But in its wild form fire is hardly less terrifying today than it was in the primal days!

Towards Firesafe Buildings

The fact is that fireproof buildings simply do not exist. Buildings can be made only firesafe, and not fireproof. All buildings contain enough combustible materials, which will sustain fire in a major fire outbreak. The heat generated in the process can cause extensive damage to the structural elements, which may collapse and bring about loss of life.

The need therefore is to design and construct “firesafe” buildings, using fire resistant systems, made up of fire retardant materials
