Perhaps the most important aspect of a FIRE SMART HOUSE is the use of fire resistant materials. One system that we use is the GIGACRETE BUILDING SYSTEM. This system uses metal stud framing and a proprietary interior and exterior plaster that is completely fireproof.
Other very important considerations are dual tempered glass windows with solid frames tested to AAMA standards, fire proof vents, and Class- A roofing materials.
Combustible materials should be avoided altogether.
