Fire protection in the education sector

Educational buildings are a sensitive topic when it comes to structural fire protection – this building usage is classified under “special buildings” in national building regulations for good reason. Educational concepts are always evolving, and structural fire protection requirements for individual buildings must be adapted to them.

New educational buildings are usually characterised by open, spacious designs. Existing buildings, in contrast, are often a challenge due to narrow building structures that are difficult to modify.

Nevertheless, both new buildings and existing ones are subject to equally high fire protection requirements.

New educational concepts have consequences for fire protection technology in common building structures; accordingly, escape routes in particular are a key topic in preventative fire protection.

In addition to the protective targets and building approval requirements under national building regulations, there are also other regulations and standards that must be observed for educational facilities, such as the fire protection technology specifications of the Muster-Schulbau-Richtlinie (School construction model guidelines) and potentially the Muster Verordnung über den Bau- und Betrieb von Versammlungsstätten. (Model ordinance on the construction and operation of places of assembly).

There are a wide range of special considerations that must be taken into account in structural fire protection. Because of this, flexible solutions are essential. From grammar school to the university campus – our fire protection solutions cover the requirements of all facilities, regardless of their size and complexity.
