PIR insulation with a (Fire Resistance of 36 minutes) is generally regarded as being more fire resistant than PUR insulation as PIR contain fire retardants. One of the most convincing arguments for the use of PIR core sandwich panels is the way they react to fire in real building fire situations. Designed specifically for use within the food and drink industry such as food manufacturing and temperature-controlled storage.
Mineral Wool panels (Fire Resistance of up to 4 hours) are used in areas where fire protection requirements are needed. The Mineral wool panels can be installed either as an internal / external firewall, suspended ceiling or as a roof structure. These panels can be laid vertically and horizontally due to their end joints. These panels can also be used for basic insulation of existing buildings.
Partitions can be constructed using the desired insulation that the client requires, from PIR(Polyisocyanurate)/Mineral wool to PUR Polyurethane. It depends on the fire rating the client requests for insurance purposes and the use of that area.
