Fire Resistance and Concrete

Concrete is non-combustible[1] - it doesn't burn, release toxic fumes or produce smoke.[2]
Concrete’s resistance to fire[3] improves the safety of occupants, fire fighters and neighbours. After a fire, in most cases buildings can quickly return to use boosting community resilience.

Concrete is also the clear choice for use in bushfire prone areas, offering a barrier to the intense heat and flame[4] and by helping to stop the spread of flames.[3]
