İzocam Deputy General Manager Doruk Özcan points out that it is very important to get
support from an expert company in insulation to be applied for fire safety; “Especially in
industrial buildings, the use of A1 class combustible products is very important. Fires in these
buildings can be spread more quickly due to some flammable materials used in the
production process. In addition to threatening life safety, fires in these large-scale factories
cause material damage that is difficult to recover and do great damage. Insulation, as well
as other precautions against fire to prevent loss of life and property, is a very effective
application in preventing the spread of fire. However, the right material should be used in
the right place, system integrity should be ensured throughout the building, and products
should be applied by the competent and well-equipped people. It is absolutely essential to
comply with the specified insulation stages as stated in Turkey’s “Regulation on Fire
Protection of Buildings”. As İzocam, we contribute to the protection of investments by
developing the best solutions with the insulation consultancy service we provide, our Tekiz
products that provide fire safety and the right applications.”

certain tests and that the building is at minimum risk, and the products having this certificate

A1 class stone wool applications
Similar to the thermal insulation differs according to the regions, the fire insulation also
varies according to the height and position of the buildings. The insulation that should be
applied in a high building and the type of insulation that should be applied to low buildings
should be evaluated by experts. For buildings 28.5 meters and higher, mineral wool products
such as stone wool is obliged to apply.
Insulation to the sides and between floors with A1 class stone wool saves time during a
possible fire. Whereas the flames in an uninsulated building rise immediately during a fire, a
building insulated with mineral products such as stone wool does not suddenly ignite and
smoke does not emit. The smoke, one of the most important issues during fire, is blocked
from interaction. It also gives a longer time for fire escape and firefighting processes.
Stone wool is formed as a result of the melting of inorganic raw materials, which are
supplied locally, into fibers at 1350-1400 degrees Celsius. Stone wool can be produced in
different sizes and technical specifications with different coating materials in the form of
mattresses, sheets, pipes and castings according to the place and purpose of use. Depending
on the product type, the usage temperature is between -50/+650 degrees Celsius and the
melting temperature is >1000 degrees Celsius. Uncoated Stone Wool products are classified
in A1 class combustible materials according to TS EN 13501-1

In order to prevent the spread of fire and to minimize the damage, fire barriers must
absolutely be created at the main construction of the structure and between the floors or at
floor points defined by the relevant experts. Especially in high-rise buildings, the use of glass
wool and stone wool called mineral wool is of great importance in curtain wall applications.
