In order to be able to construct fireproof buildings and to use buildings safely, first it has to be determined what ‘safe’ is.
Constructing buildings ‘even more safe’ is not always achievable. Limiting factors can be the costs involved, but also the ease of use, flexibility and durability. What, then, is sufficiently safe and which measures must be taken to ensure this? Which ones are worth considering and which go ‘too far’? After all, fire hazards are always present in buildings, leaving aside unused and therefore empty bunkers. The trick is to curtail these hazards sufficiently.
