Fire-Resistant Rubber Flooring
Fire protection is an important safety aspect and building code requirement of any facility; from schools and healthcare facilities to retail, offices and more. Mondo Contract Flooring offers fire-resistant rubber flooring that has undergone numerous safety tests to ensure it provides the maximum protection against any fire situations.
Rubber Flooring and Building Code Compliance
The polymers rubber is made of and its construction contribute to its fire resistance. Consequently, the flooring we produce is fire retardant, which means that our rubber flooring solutions provide fire protection and help you comply with your local building codes.
Building codes provide a fire safety framework and apply to all types of commercial facilities. These codes define the minimum safety requirements that each building must meet, and they vary by state and sometimes by city. If your building does not meet these requirements, you may be forced to make repairs, cease construction, pay fines or face other consequences.
What Fire Safety Standards Do Our Rubber Flooring Options Meet?
Many commercial spaces have strict safety requirements, including fire safety, and all of our products undergo rigorous fire safety testing to ensure they meet all the most critical standards.
Class 1 Fire-Rated Rubber Flooring
All of our flooring is Class 1 fire-rated, so it is the most fire-resistant flooring available. A Class 1 rating test measures how much a flame will spread and how much smoke it will produce when introduced to a material. The material must score less than 25 for flame spread and 450 or less for smoke development to receive a Class 1 rating.
ASTM E648 Fire-Rated Rubber Flooring
The ASTM E648 test measures rubber flooring's critical radiant flux, which is the minimum heat energy a fire needs to sustain a flame on a material. Essentially, the test measures how the flame spreads by applying radiant heat at a 30-degree angle over horizontally placed flooring that is mounted on concrete. The higher the critical radiant flux number, the less likely it is that the material will spread the flame. For each products ASTM E648 results go to our products page.

Here are just a few of the commercial facilities fire-retardant rubber flooring is beneficial.
When you think about schools, you think about safe spaces. Part of that safety includes protection in the event of a fire. Schools must be designed with emergency exits, fire extinguishers and other materials that comply with building codes. Fire-resistant flooring is particularly important to prevent the spread of fire and meet safety regulations.
The materials in flooring can have a significant impact on the spread of fire and smoke throughout a school. When you choose one of our flooring options, you can rest assured that you are purchasing the most fire-resistant flooring available.
Hospitals typically have stringent fire safety regulations for every building material used in their construction. As hospital patients may lack the mobility or knowledge of the facility required to exit safely, the materials within a hospital must be as fire-retardant as possible, especially the flooring.
The primary goal for fire safety in a hospital setting is to stop the spread of fire and smoke so people can move and be removed as easily as possible. Our flooring is specifically designed to resist flames and produce minimal smoke, which will help to ensure the safety of staff, patients and visitors in the event of a fire.
Fire protection is essential to the safety of museums, airports, auditoriums, sports facilities and other public spaces. In the event of a fire-related incident in your facility, our rubber flooring reduces the spread of flames and smoke, providing greater protection for your patrons and assets.
