Fire safety of industrial hall - valorisation project

New fire safety regulation proposals for single storey buildings have appeared in different countries (France, Spain, and Belgium) that could result a significant loss of market share for steel. The steel industry must be ready to provide strong technical arguments and solutions to avoid the introduction of excessive fire resistance requirements in the single storey field throughout Europe. With this aim, an ECSC Project called "Fire Safety of Industrial hall and low rise building" has been finalized last year.
Significant and encouraging results have been obtained during this project. The aim is to disseminate all the results obtained during this project by:
- the redaction of a design guide that provides a way to guarantee the safety of occupants and firemen through alternatives to prescriptive ISO fire requirements
- the organization of workshop including local authorities and firemen.
