Previous work has demonstrated that the main and initiating hazard from combustible insulation materials is the onset of pyrolysis. This paper presents a methodology for designing thermal barriers for combustible insulation in buildings, which represent the main measure to control this hazard. A series of potential design tools are developed in order to determine the relationship between the different design parameters, and therefore, define the optimum thickness and thermal properties from the thermal barrier for a series of fire inputs.
