By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Bioterrorism Week -- Owens Corning announced that several of its Thermafiber® mineral wool insulation products and their supporting design and installation services have earned SAFETY Act Designation, retroactive to January 1, 2006, from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. Use of these products and services will provide building owners and professionals with liability protection in the unfortunate event of an act of terrorism on their structure (see also Owens Corning).

The purpose of the Support Anti-Terrorism by Fostering Effective Technologies Act, enacted in 2002, is to ensure the threat of liability doesn't prevent companies from developing and commercializing products that could save lives in the event of an act of terrorism. It restricts liability where qualified anti-terrorism technologies, or QATTs, have been used.

"Owens Corning is the first insulation manufacturer to be listed publicly with the Department of Homeland Security as having qualified technology carrying the SAFETY Act Designation," said Julian Francis, president, Insulation Business. "This recognition and its powerful liability protection provide a strong and unique benefit to our customers, building owners, and the architects and contractors who design and build high-rise buildings."

After a thorough review process by DHS, the following Thermafiber® fire barrier solutions qualify as anti-terrorism technologies and meet the highest standards required to earn SAFETY Act Designation: Thermafiber® Perimeter Fire Barrier System and Components Owens Corning® Thermafiber® FireSpan® 90 and 40

Angela Ogino, technical services leader, added, "Commercial building occupants depend on solid building design for their safety; for architects and specifiers, this DHS SAFETY Act Designation provides added peace of mind. The SAFETY Act Designation further underscores the role Owens Corning can play as a resource to architects and others in confidently designing, specifying and building durable and safe commercial structures."
