A reed roof is a rather archaic solution for home, but thanks to modern technology it is as safe as regular roofing materials. Fire safety requirements for residential homes are becoming more stringent and naturally, special measures were developed for houses with reed roofs, which ensure complete safety.
Simpeksa UAB uses fire retardant Magama Firestop produced according to ISO 9002 standard for treatment of reed roofs. This fire retardant protects the reeds from outside and prevents sudden ignition.
The whole surface of the reed roof is sprayed with fire retardant after the installation is completed. The manufacturer declares that a reed roof may be fire retardant for up to 10 years after treatment. Impregnated roof meets the B roof (T1) classification according to STR 2.01.04:2002.
A reed roof may be protected against ignition from the inside by special fire retardant materials: special panels or textiles, which prevent the spread of fire to the outside. Treatment for fire retardancy from the inside must be done before laying the reeds. After applying all necessary fire retardancy treatments, the risk of ignition of a reed roof is not higher than that of a traditional roof.
