Why full facade design should be in Euroclass A2

Specified as a component in building envelope design, the Stamisol Safe One breather membrane can be part of a strategy that contributes to fire safety

To achieve a full facade design in Euroclass A2 for curtain wall rear-ventilated facades, Swiss company Serge Ferrari developed Stamisol Safe One, a vertical breather wall membrane, classified Euroclass A2,s1-d0. 

The Stamisol Safe One membrane, specified as a component in building envelope design, can be used as part of a strategy that contributes to fire safety as well as achieving requisite weather protection. It would also be a suitable upgrade in rear-ventilated over-cladding scenarios where Euroclass E and B membranes have been used until now. In support of the ADB guide, it is now possible to have a wall system, as defined by Euroclass A2.

Stamisol Safe One Euroclass A2 facade breather membrane can be used both for closed and partially open vertical facades with up to 50mm joints or with an open area of up to 50 per cent. It was designed to meet stringent fire safety requirements, for the rear-ventilation level of high-rise buildings above 18m or high-risk buildings such as rehab centres and buildings within the education sector.
