Europe’s largest paper plant
The DS Smith paper plant in Aschaffenburg (GER) is one of the oldest paper plants in Europe. The plant, which was founded in 1872, is one of the world’s leader manufacturers of (corrugated) cardboard packaging and Europe’s largest paper and cardboard recycler. As paper is a highly flammable material, fire safety is an important concern at the plant.
Wide, fire-resistant partitions
To create an extra-wide partition between the storage boxes, we used double blocks with a total width of 1.6 metres. In total, we placed 4,000 blocks. Legioblocks’ fire-resistant properties will contain a fire within a compartment and minimise the risk of the flames spreading to other buildings or storage boxes. The stackable blocks offer class A1 fire resistance and meet the requirements of the REI240 standard. This means the blocks have a fire resistance of at least four hours.
