Fire Resistant Metal Buildings

Fire Resistant Metal Buildings

April 20, 2023
At Metals Direct, we take great pride in the fire resistance of our metal buildings. When it comes to protecting your home or business from fire, metal is the superior choice. Here's why:

Lightning resistance:

One of the major concerns when it comes to fire safety is lightning strikes. Lightning is not attracted to metal, but to the highest point in the area. This means that if your building is the tallest structure in the area, it could be at risk of a lightning strike. However, if your building is made of metal, it's non-combustible, meaning that even if it does get hit by lightning, it won't catch fire.


Another major advantage of metal buildings when it comes to fire safety is that they are non-combustible. Unlike wood, which can easily catch fire and spread flames, metal doesn't burn. This means that if a fire does break out in or around your building, it's much less likely to spread and cause serious damage.

Easy maintenance:

Metal buildings are also easy to maintain when it comes to fire safety. Because they are made of non-combustible materials, you don't have to worry about regularly treating them with fire retardant chemicals or other substances. Additionally, metal roofs are less likely to accumulate debris, such as dry leaves or branches, that could potentially ignite and start a fire.
