Leading external flooring specialist Alfresco Floors, provides quality Class-A rated flooring systems, helping make balcony installations entirely non-combustible.
Why Class A Fire Rated Flooring Systems?
When it comes to specifying your balcony flooring project, the importance of fire regulation is at an all-time high.
Although official standards state that Class-A rated materials are only required on residential buildings over 18 metres (11 metres in Scotland), architects, specifiers, and builders alike are increasingly choosing them for all projects regardless of building height or use.
Despite this, it can be quite overwhelming to understand exactly what materials you need to make your project non-combustible, so what options are there and what does it involve?
What Materials Are Fire Rated?
Understanding your A1 ratings from your A2, Bs or Cs can be confusing.
At the end of the day, what’s needed for your project is a material that provides the highest quality aesthetic while also ensuring the maximum level of fire-rating – in other words those rated Class A.
We’ve written extensively about the materials that are Class-A fire rated and can provide solutions for projects of all varieties.
Materials such as composites, providing a timber-like aesthetic, are available through ZERODECK, while porcelain, concrete, and aluminium options are all available and Class-A fire rated.
With comprehensive non-combustible decking supports also available, including functionality such as slope correction, you can guarantee an entirely Class-A fire rated project through Alfresco Floors.
