Energy consumption is rising alongside the associated danger of fire

due to the increased industrialization and urbanisation of previously rural areas.

An example of a building that is predisposed to fire has a furnace on the bottom

floor, one that is used in the production of iron and steel, or thermal power plants.

It's difficult, time-consuming, and potentially hazardous to intervene in a fire

from the exterior of a high-rise structure, whose number is expanding every day

with construction technology. It's hard to forecast how long a fire will burn or

how far it will spread. Complete fire safety practices are especially important in

densely populated buildings to prevent fire dangers to people and property.

Because of the high temperatures produced by the fire, the structural system's

parts may lose stiffness and strength, resulting in structural damage. A wide

variety of insulation materials are utilised to shield the elements of the building

carrier system and the materials on which they are constructed from extreme heat

and flame. A combination of these materials is utilised to create the insulation

systems in use today. Although there are a variety of insulation applications that

may be developed for fire protection, covering the environment is more frequent

these days. To insulate anything, you can use the wrapping technique, which is

wrapping or covering the outside of the item to be protected with insulation.

Three cutting-edge insulation technologies, all suitable for application in fire

prevention, are presented within the framework of this research.
