EOS mitigating risks in residential buildings


D


amage to a structure during construction through moisture or fire leads to potential delays to contract, expensive remediation works or even complete loss of the structure. A


key advantage of light steel frame is increased fire performance and protection from weather during the construction process.


REDUCING THE FIRE LOAD The amount of combustible material in a light steel framed building is much lower, therefore the fire risk during construction and when in use is reduced. Steel is non-combustible and does not add to the fire load of a building – reducing the ‘fuel for the fire’ and limiting risk of damage and injury.


SAFETY-FIRST APPROACH Developed by EOS in collaboration with Etex group companies – Siniat, a leading expert in plasterboard and drylining systems, together with fire protection specialists Promat and FSi – the Thrubuild® complete load-bearing walling and flooring systems combine the technical and manufacturing expertise of the group to provide a comprehensive range of tested and certified solutions for light steel frame construction – all from one supplier. All components and products are rigorously tested together


to ensure compatibility and system performance, enabling EOS to warrant the technical performance of their Thrubuild® range of solutions. Fire resistance periods of 60, 90 and 120 minutes are readily achievable. When walling and flooring systems are built entirely with Etex Building Performance components and materials in line with their latest standards — Etex award a Thrubuild® 30-year warranty. This approach mitigates risk for housing developers because


these integrated systems have been tested and assessed for compliance with the latest regulations and standards, to ensure robust and reliable performance. Design performance is achieved using combinations of boarding and insulation and only tested configurations are available for selection.
