Bamboo works are not flammable as people think. Although bamboo is natural material, the resistance to fire is not inferior to cement, iron, steel.
According to Ho Chi Minh City Fire and Rescue Police Department, the causes of fire stem from the subjectiveness and carelessness of people.
Bamboo works today are popular due to its unique beauty. However, many people are also worry about the ability of fire-prevention. Everybody thinks that bamboo works are easy to burn. However that statement is completely wrong!
Bamboo is flammable when it’s split. The intact bamboo has the hard outer cover, so it’s difficulty flammable. In BambuBuild’s projects, bamboo structures are connected closely, it’s harder to fire.
For bamboo works, sometimes thatch roof is easy to burn. However, today we have the solution to surmount this disadvantage. The workers will cover the chemical layer on the roof. This chemical has the effect of limiting the fire spread, protects the whole architecture.
Especially, BambuBuild’s designs always forward to the low-rise buildings with open and airy space, closer to nature. These are the good features to protect bamboo work from fire.
The bamboo projects of BambuBuild are mainly restaurants, resorts on the large areas that have many streams, trees, cool climate so fire protection system is quite safe.
For the urban areas, Bambubuild’s experts will have the consultancy and design suitable with the area, location and plan to ensure safety for the works.
→ In conclusion, if we are initiative to fire-prevent well, bamboo architecture or the architectures built from concrete, iron, steel will be safe.
