Blazeguard used in "Smart Home" at Museum of Science and Industry

The Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago, IL currently has a unique exhibit - a "Smart Home: Green + Wired". This exhibit is a real, functioning three-story modular and sustainable "green" home - built in the Museum's backyard. The home focuses on reusable resources; smart energy consumption; and clean, healthy living environments in a contemporary setting.

The "Smart Home" is on display until January 4th, 2009

Barrier Technology teamed up with Mule-Hide Products to donate panels of our Blazeguard product - the Mule-Hide FR (Fire-Rated) Deck Panel for use in the roof deck of this building. Our product fit perfectly with this project for many reasons: a fire-retardant building material that is non-combustible, ignition resistant, non-hazardous, that releases water - not chemicals upon the heat of fire. Barrier is proud to provide environmentally friendly products that protect people and property from fire.

Barrier Technology's Mule-Hide FR Deck Panel lies beneath this "green" garden roof seen from above.
