Firebreak - Fire Safety by Design

Torvgargen Commercial Development, Asker, Norway

The steeply sloping site presented an interesting challenge to the designers of the Torvgarden Commercial Development which cleverly addressed the problem by way of an attractive free flowing glass encased structure securely anchored to the hillside.

Situated in Asker on the outskirts of Oslo, the building provides both office accommodation and retail space and has a steel framed structure protected with Firebreak 303 and Firebreak 305 intumescent coatings applied on site. The fire performance of both products has been independently appraised by SINTEF, the Norwegian national testing laboratory, and production is monitored by SINTEF NBL as part of the Type Approval for the materials.
