Fire Resistant Thachted Roof
Prof. Dr. Jiv Raj Pokhrel, president of Nepal Center for Disaster Management, has been working on a fire resistant thached roof, in which he puts a half inch mud plaster on top of a traditional thachted roof , which is then covered with a uv protected plastic sheet. By doing this, oxygen is blocked out and fire will die out quickly even if gets there. The cost is minimal. It uses little bit of plastic, but it will make thachted roof fire resistant!!
