Flooring is not just an aesthetic matter. In most countries, rigorous requirements for the fire protection of floorings in public buildings must be met. Furthermore, one feels safe and secure when floors of theaters and hospitals, for example, meet such requirements.

Typical requirements for public floorings are low flammability, slow flame propagation and low smoke density in case of fire.

PVC floorings which contain Disflamoll® DPK or Reofos® 50 show excellent fire resistance. Low smoke density requirements can be achieved with Disflamoll® DPO. These products are also suitable for rubber- or PUR-based floorings.
