Fire safety issues in high-rise building façades
Many recent fire events demonstrate that the need of improving the technical knowledge and
the practical procedures in the design of the façade systems to be used in high-rise buildings,
especially for what concerns the fire vulnerability, is still very strong. Through the analysis of
some case studies and examples, the paper highlights the need to investigate and solve these
aspects, both in terms of detail design and materials choice, as well as through appropriate
specific FSE (Fire Safety Engineering) analysis and laboratory tests.
