Abstract

There has been an increased focus on energy upgrading the existing building stock,including the use of internal insulation. The focus in previous studies examining internal insulation has mainly been energy savings and later durability in relation to moisture safety. None of the studies have reported whether or not the applied retrofit measures fulfil the fire regulations. The height of the building is also considered in fire regulations, and therefore,measures that are applicable in e.g. single-family houses might not be applicable in apartment buildings. This study includes a review of 45 internal insulation scenarios in 38 case buildings. These measures are evaluated against the EU[1]harmonized and Danish fire regulations. The study evaluates, whether the measure is applicable at all floor levels or not.
