Aliva ventilated facades use unburnt materials and their design is fireproof

For more than 30 years, Aliva has been operating in the ventilated façade sector and is the leader in the design and production of systems. Ventilated façades play a fundamental role in relating to the urban context and ensure constant air circulation without hindering any architectural constraints.

Today, going more specifically - the ventilated facades of Aliva - we focus on their concrete and certified ability to prevent and not spread potential fires (internal or external to the building). The reaction to fire is one of the most relevant protection characteristics to ensure an adequate level of safety in any building, both civil and industrial.       
The reaction to fire is one of the most relevant protection characteristics to ensure an adequate level of safety in any building, both civil and industrial. For years we have been working so that all the products and solutions proposed by Aliva are concretely fireproof, how?

1.Using only and exclusively non-combustible materials, in fact, all products offered by Aliva in its ventilated facades are classified with the highest degree of reaction to fire existing to date: A1 and A2 - according to UNI EN 13501-1. The reference standard defines non-combustible materials as: non-combustible products that prevent the facade from catching fire if there is a trigger (inside, outside or in any situation) making them the main material to choose for safe ventilated facades, as Aliva does.
2.By inserting bespoke design tools, such as compartmentalisation of the enclosure with fire plates (between one floor and another) and "fire stop" elements, which expand - if exposed to intense heat - to obstruct the ventilation cavity, preventing a fire from being generated and spreading within the building or on neighbouring structures. These and other devices are inserted into the ventilated façade design after careful analysis of the case and if the situation requires it.

From these considerations it emerges how important and necessary is to choose products, components, solutions and certified systems, as well as quality.
