Fire, Safety and Security
The reaction of building material to fire can save the lives of the building’s occupants. Saint-Gobain has a range of solutions to protect people and property.
• Non-combustible ceiling board and insulation.
• Plasterboard and high-performance fire-resistant dry-walling systems.
• Passive, fire-rated drywall and ceiling solutions that provide vital time for occupants to evacuate the building in the event of a fire.
• Safety films that protect from breaking glass, while keeping the glass together in the event of breakage or explosions.
MAINTENANCE AND COST
The more work required for maintenance, the higher the cost. Renovations may be out of reach and messy with traditional methods of building.
Saint-Gobain dry-walling systems are more efficient in facilitating change. Their use produces less waste and curbs unsightly working spaces, while allowing for low maintenance costs.
Drywall systems, ceilings and floor insulation may increase overall construction costs by 2 to 3 per cent compared with concrete-based construction.
However, combining all of Saint-Gobain systems can enable savings to up to 60 per cent on the bill, which largely compensates for this increase.
