EBEA® is designed to prevent these issues and provide high-quality, energy-efficient buildings. The document explains that Peikko EBEA® has fire resistance properties that are evaluated and classified according to European harmonized standard EN 13501-1/2 or Swiss standard SIA 183 according to VKF (Swiss fire protection authority).
Depending on the use of the building and design of the façade, EBEA® can fulfil the fire resistance period requirement of 30 to 90 minutes. This makes it a reliable choice for buildings with different fire protection requirements. Finally, the document highlights a real-life example of how EBEA® performed in an extreme case of fire on a building site in Lithuania.
Despite the intense heat and flames, EBEA® was able to withstand the load applied over several hours and maintain its strength and durability.
Overall, this White Paper provides valuable information on how EBEA® can help construct high-quality, energy-efficient buildings with reliable fire resistance properties.
