Application of Metal Suspended Ceilings for Fire Safety: Advantages According to DBN V.2.2-9-2009

In modern construction, increasing attention is being paid not only to aesthetics and functionality but also to building safety, especially in terms of fire protection. Among various innovative solutions, metal suspended ceilings stand out as one of the promising materials providing a high level of fire safety. In this article, we will examine the advantages of metal suspended ceilings, relying on the requirements of Ukrainian construction norms DBN V.2.2-9-2009.

WHAT ARE METAL SUSPENDED CEILINGS?

Metal suspended ceilings are structures consisting of metal panels that are attached to the supporting system using hangers. They possess a high degree of strength, durability, and fire resistance, making them an ideal choice for ensuring building safety.

1. NON-COMBUSTIBILITY OF MATERIALS

According to DBN V.2.2-9-2009, one of the important aspects of fire safety is the use of materials with a low level of flammability. Metal suspended ceilings are made from aluminum or steel, which are non-combustible materials. This reduces the likelihood of fire spreading and can prevent flame propagation within a space.

2. ABSENCE OF TOXIC EMISSIONS

In the event of a fire, metal suspended ceilings do not emit toxic substances that can be harmful to people and the environment. According to DBN V.2.2-9-2009, this is a crucial criterion when assessing materials from the perspective of fire safety.

3. EASE OF DISASSEMBLY

In case of a fire, quick access to the source of flames and firefighting is critical. Metal suspended ceilings can be easily disassembled, allowing firefighters and rescue services to quickly access necessary areas to combat the fire and evacuate people.

4. MOISTURE AND CORROSION RESISTANCE

Metal suspended ceilings demonstrate resistance to moisture and corrosion, making them a suitable choice for humid environments and areas with an increased risk of fire. Moisture can deteriorate the fire safety properties of some materials, but metal ceilings maintain their characteristics even in humid conditions.

5. INTEGRATION WITH FIRE SAFETY AND VENTILATION SYSTEMS

Metal suspended ceilings can be easily integrated with fire safety systems, such as smoke detectors, fire dampers, and automatic fire suppression systems. They also allow convenient placement of ventilation ducts and grilles, contributing to effective smoke removal and proper room ventilation.

METAL CEILINGS FROM THE MEHBUD FACTORY

Metal ceilings from the Mehbud factory are made from high-quality materials and comply with quality standards. Mehbud has quality certificates for its products, confirming their compliance with requirements and standards.

Additionally, Mehbud’s products have conformity certificates from UkrSEPRO (Ukrainian State Certification Center), confirming compliance with the requirements of State Building Norms and Rules of Ukraine.

Such certificates confirm that Mehbud’s products meet the safety, quality, and reliability requirements established by Ukrainian legislation. This is further evidence that metal ceilings from Mehbud are a safe and reliable choice for construction projects of any complexity.

CONCLUSION

Considering the fire safety requirements set by DBN V.2.2-9-2009, metal suspended ceilings are an attractive solution for various construction projects. They not only provide an aesthetic appearance and functionality but also help enhance the fire safety of a space.

The implementation of metal suspended ceilings in architectural practice is a step forward in ensuring the fire safety of buildings. With their aesthetic appeal and functionality, they represent an optimal combination of style and safety. It is important to continue research and development in this area to increase the level of fire protection for buildings, meet modern standards, and comply with safety requirements.
