Fire Retardant

Guaranteed Protection against Fire with Viva’s Fire-Retardant ACP Sheets

It is needless to mention the fact that accidents caused by fire can cause serious injury, enormous damage to personal property and even death. It must also be noted that most fire-related deaths are caused by smoke inhalation of the toxic gases produced during fire breakouts. The smoke contains a huge level of carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide as well as threatening levels of chemical and thermal irritants that can damage the respiratory system and cause death.

In response to the dangers of a fire breakout, Viva became the first ACP sheet manufacturer in India to introduce an FR grade A2+ Aluminium Corrugated Composite Panel. Their core is made up of aluminium in the form of a honeycomb which stops the spread of fire and reduces its intensity. The vacuum created by the air bubbles between the honeycomb core doesn’t let the fire spread further. It significantly reduces the risk attached to fire casualties by providing ample time to the trapped people to evacuate the building and produces negligible smoke and zero flaming droplets.

Viva’s fire retardant ACP does not release any toxic gases or chemicals and produces negligible smoke during a fire breakout that helps the people evacuate the building easily and quickly. Also, the heat released from Viva’s ACP sheets is significantly low, keeping the temperature of the building at a bearable level.

Viva’s superior quality fire-retardant ACP sheets can protect you from a great deal of harm and prevent deaths caused due to the inhalation of toxic smoke and fumes in case of a fire accident. Viva’s FR ACPs are certified by Thomas Bell-Wright International Consultant.
