Fire protection is an increasingly important part of today’s building industry largely due to urbanization. The more concentrated environments we live in, the higher the risk is for a life-threatening fire to spread quickly. Buildings and structures need protection against this imminent threat. Consistent use of integrated, passive fire protection is the most effective way to minimize this risk and protect people’s lives, their property and the environment.
Fire ProtectionSika fire protection systems have been developed to protect and preserve major building components like steel, wood and concrete, which are mainly used in the following markets:


  • Transport and infrastructure
  • Healthcare, education, leisure and culture
  • Residential, commercial and administration buildings
  • Pharmaceutical, chemical and electronic plants

Each of these markets have specific requirements in terms of fire resistance classes, application, and design. Sika is able to provide tailor-made solutions with fire resistance from 15 minutes up to 150 minutes.
