Fire experts from the professional fire department said that in climate-friendly insulated buildings, the insulation material can act as a fire accelerator.
Buildings with climate-friendly insulation are prone to fire due to the insulation materials used. They can act as fire accelerators, said Francesca Monti, a fire specialist with the Bolzano Fire Brigade.
As in the case of a tall building in Milan, materials are often used that are excellent insulators and, due to their structure, act as fire accelerators even when sparks are flying. The guidelines have been issued in view of the high interest in construction or renovation in a climate friendly manner. Along with a decree from 2019 is a guide that the Office for Fire Prevention has developed in conjunction with the Climate House Agency. There are no guarantees, however, Monty insisted.
