Double-skin facade is an excellent material for decoration of buildings. Despite the large number of advantages over other types of finishes, ventilated facades also have their drawbacks. In particular, a violation of installation conditions and fire safety regulations can lead to serious consequences. Innovative materials and structures in the field of fire safety are analyzed in this paper. The article deals with fire protection methods, special attention is given to the unit of fire crosscuts in the air gap of double-skin facade. Analysis of experimental data has revealed some drawbacks of this method and the necessity of design improvements.
