Résumé : Construction details of 19th century fireproof buildings are discussed. The paper deals more specifically with Brussels industrial iron framed buildings. The innovations and developments of construction techniques are illustrated by going deeper into three representative Brussels case-studies. The changes in construction techniques and the applications of new materials are explained by the evolving insight in 'fire safety'. Some attention will be paid to international developments, more specifically the introduction of the Eurocodes. Directions are given on how to apply this knowledge when dealing with 19th century 'fireproof' buildings.
