Fire protection in timber construction

Modern home construction is an attractive solution for the sustainable and efficient use of our limited resources. Building with wood results in considerable CO2 savings and therefore makes a positive contribution to climate protection.

When it comes to fire protection in timber construction, selecting suitable fire protection systems always poses a challenge as there are currently no generally applicable rules for all timber constructions.

Nevertheless, we can offer you passive penetration seals for timber construction. This includes various systems for fire-resistant pipe, cable, and mixed penetration seals. Feel free to contact us for detailed information.

Questions about fire protection in timber construction? We have the answers.

What fire protection requirements apply to passive fire protection in timber construction?

Verification of the required fire resistance of construction products and building elements must also be provided for timber constructions according to the fire resistance classes outlined in DIN EN 13501-2.

What needs to be considered regarding fire seals in wooden walls and floors?

Only applications that have been specially tested for use in timber building elements should be used for fire seals in timber constructions.

Which fire protection solutions are suitable for properly sealing penetrations in wooden walls and wooden floors?

In particular, soft penetration seal systems, such as the Flammotect system for mixed penetration seals, can be installed for fire seals in timber constructions. For single-pipe penetrations with combustible pipes, we recommend our highly effective AWM II fire protection collar.

How are cable and pipe penetration seals installed in wooden walls and wooden floors?

With our tested FLAMRO® penetration sealing systems for timber construction, no additional reveal cladding is required. Installation in timber constructions is carried out in the same way as processing in solid walls, solid floors, and plasterboard walls.
