At Brunner, we operate according to the principle of sustainability: We combine economic success with social and ecological responsibility. As a family-owned company and one of the leading contract furniture manufacturers in Europe, we consider it our duty to assume responsibility with regard to fire protection. Therefore, we are continuously working on improving the fire protection properties of our products – for an increased level of safety in case of fire.
Because good planning saves lives. In case of fire, furniture can greatly affect the development of smoke and fire and can therefore be literally a matter of life and death. In the event of a fire, there is a high degree of danger in buildings with heavy pedestrian traffic, such as in foyers, waiting areas and particularly in public welfare facilities. Residents with limited physical and mental capacities have to be brought to safety in the shortest time possible. It is for these reasons that special safety precautions are necessary.
The focus of these measures is the prevention and containment of a fire. Short and secure escape routes, self-extinguishing or low-flammability construction materials as well as low generation of smoke are only a few factors that contribute to preventing and containing fires.
When we are developing our furniture, we place a great deal of emphasis, not just on comfort, but we are also able to ensure excellent safety standards at the same time. To reduce the risks as well as the effects of a fire, official requirements have been expanded and enhanced over the course of the last ten years. The ever-increasing requirements for fire protection are posing new challenges to developers, architects and operators.
In order to meet these high requirements, we offer customised and flexible solutions – for every room and every situation of risk. We will gladly consult with you individually, providing practical advice from the initial planning stages of your project. This offers us the opportunity to show you the configuration in which our contract furniture meets the required fire protection requirements.
The following brochure contains important information about fire protection requirements and provides an overview of the safety-related characteristics of our product line.
