At the end of November 2021, DELCO accompanies the investor DORCO LIVING VINA to complete the procedures for approving the fire protection system of the factory according to the latest regulations in 2021.
New standards on fireproof materials
From the beginning of 2021, Vietnam has applied the National Technical Regulation on fire safety for Buildings and Constructions QCVN 06:2021/BXD and Decree 136, effective from July 5, 2021 to replace QCVN 06:2010 and Decree 79.
The new regulation has a number of changes to improve fire safety based on practical research on the heat resistance and fire resistance of some specific materials such as glass, walls, frames, buffer materials, etc. If Decree 79 allows the use of materials that have passed the test with dimensions of 480mm x 480mm on all fireproof applications in the building, then Decree 136 mandates that all fireproof applications be tested as a complete system, not just individual components.
