Industrial insulation: how to optimise your fire protection| ISOVER

Fire Reaction


The risk of fire in industrial environments is much higher than for other applications, particularly when working with welding and grinding equipment in high-temperature environments containing flammable or explosive media. Choosing adapted, high-performance fire insulation materials ensures your personnel and equipment are fully protected.

Best-in-class industrial fire insulation

Passive fire protection using non-combustible materials is the best way to reduce the risk of a fire starting or spreading. As a leading industrial fire insulation provider, ISOVER has developed a choice of fire-resistant insulation products offering best-in-class fire safety properties (Euroclass Group A): non-combustible, non-flammable, flashove, minimal smoke and toxic gases. 
Designed for different industrial applications, from pipework to storage tanks and heaters, ISOVER stone wool and ULTIMATE™ mineral wool products (whether slabs, mats or rolls) make your factory or plant a safer place to work.

What exactly is ULTIMATE™ mineral wool?

ULTIMATE™ mineral wool has excellent thermal, acoustic and fire-resistance properties thanks to a unique internal micro-structure.  long, light, elastic fibres can be compressed and, once installed, retain their insulation properties and thickness over time, even when exposed to vibrations and thermal shocks. 

ULTIMATE™ mineral wool has been used in industrial insulation for more than 10 years and proven in numerous reference projects across power generation, oil & gas and process industry applications.
