Fire protection in buildings of wood

Fire Safety Records and Reports Wooden building- in inventory – require special knowledge.

…a misjudgment

However, the widespread opinion is not true. Wooden structures prove to be quite equal to other construction methods, during the event of fire. Fire-fighters, can confirm this. Wood construction allows for a longer fire resistance and abolish it acoustically before is collapses.

Competent planning and customized fire protection may support this. Wooden constructions are also conceivable in building dimensions and utilization in which they are actually “banned”, namely still fulfill the building regulations of the federal states. This is the biggest obstacle for wood construction, since it is needed most in the heart of our cities.

There is an excellent infrastructure that already exists and it can be constructed to compact an area.

There are communities founded, by ecology oriented people, whom are interested in sustainability and resource conservation.

There are fast construction processes and optimal prefabrication, particularly necessary, to avoid long disturbance of the residential sphere.
