Fire spreading calculations

Buildings should be protected for flash-overs. Flash-overs can occur between openings in facades. A flash-over can be prevented by placing fire-resistant materials in these openings. Fire resistant materials - like fire resistant glass - can be very expensive.

The alternative for fire-resistant facades is a fire spreading calculation. This calculation can prove that under certain circumstances flash-overs can be prevented with only limited measures.

The advisors from HAC have extensive experience in fire spreading calculations. These calculations are executed according to the latest conditions under which flash-overs can occur.
