In addition to its versatility and creativity, the FunderMax m.look range provides the added peace of mind of ensuring Class A fire ratings. The need for fire-resistant materials is essential. Whether designing office spaces or residential home interiors or exteriors, safety should never be compromised at the cost of style. In South Africa and further afield, there have been a number of cases over the years that illustrate the importance of choosing fire-rated building materials. Whether designing a new patio, balcony, kitchen or a specialised commercial project such as an office or retail store, choosing materials that you can trust is vital. The FunderMax m.look collection is designed for exteriors but has been successfully used in interior projects in certain cases for added fire protection. This range provides additional freedom thanks to its ability to withstand not only fire and other damage but also weather and environmental conditions. Keep reading to find out more about why it is so important to keep fire ratings in mind when choosing cladding and other materials.

Why m.look FunderMax’s Class A Fire Ratings are Essential
The FunderMax m.look Exterior and Interior range allows a wide range of choices in style and design. At the same time, this product is also made to be suitable for all applications that are required to adhere to global fire safety classification such as A2-s1,d0 according to EN 13501-1. In South Africa, buildings need to comply with the National Building Regulations and Building Standards Act No 103 of 1977. This regulation is laid out in Sans 10400 T, Sans 10287 and Sans 10139, and various other standards. For construction, these regulations require all buildings to be designed and constructed in order to meet the following requirements in the event of fire:
- Buildings should be fully protected against the spread of fire within the building and the risk of fire spreading to nearby buildings must be reduced.
- Stability should be retained to avoid damage to any nearby buildings or structures – particularly in the case of multi-storey buildings that are at greater risk of structural damage.

All buildings are required by law, in accordance with this Act, to ensure that the design, equipment and construction of buildings comply with SANS 10400 Part T to the satisfaction of local authorities. Choosing materials simply for their looks is not only dangerous but can also end up costing far more than you realise in the event of fire or any damage.
