Improving the fire resistance of building components

The fire resistance of a building component depends on the single component parts and the way in which they are assembled to form the building component.
Accessible fire resistance times will always be ruled by the weakest link of the whole unit. A tightly focused use of intumescent materials at the „weak spots“ of the building component can significantly reduce the influence of fire and radiant heat and effectively extend the fire resistance time while the setup of the building component can widely stay unchanged.
