Is Your R7.0 Insulation Fire Proof?
A non-combustible material is one that is not capable of undergoing combustion under specified conditions (ASTM E 176). Fire resistance refers to how long a building material will continue to perform its intended function when exposed to a fire.
Knauf Earthwool and most modern glasswool insulation is considered non-combustible, i.e. it will not catch fire. It is not designed to stop the spread fires in buildings but will not ignite and aid in the spreading of a fire.
If you are looking to purchase insulation that can be used as a fire barrier, Rockwool is incombustible and can be used as a fire barrier in certain applications, providing effective protection to neighbouring buildings and the public in the event of fire.
