Size matters when specifying fire-resistant ceilings


Geoff Wilkinson. I have followed your dialogue with interest for sometime size and ceiling coatings have yet to be proven. In many cases, temperatures up to 1000 degrees C have been experienced. Bearing in mind that according to European research 40% of fires, Worldwide, have determined electrical cable malfunction as the origin. Would it not be better to focus attention on the causes of fire. Surely, a metal-sheathed, non-aging, fireproof cable, that does not burn, exude smoke and toxic fumes that would eliminate the fire spread is the better solution.
