The protection of human life has top priority at ALPOLICTM. That is why we pay the utmost attention to fire safety in all our developments. Our aluminium composite panels are tested for their fire behaviour in the toughest tests. The tests provide us with important results on the basis of which we continuously adapt our product development to the safety requirements of the respective countries in coordination with national and European authorities. All with the clear goal of ensuring optimum safety for our customers.
ALPOLICTM A1: highest fire protection classification
With the development of ALPOLICTM A1 we are setting further standards in fire protection.
The core material consists of almost 100% non-combustible ingredients with a calorific value of less than 1 MJ/kg. It is currently the only composite material that has been classified for the highest fire protection class A1 according to the European fire protection standard EN 13501-1. This means that the material is non-combustible and does not develop any smoke in case of fire.
BRE (UK) Large-scale fire testing according to BS 8414
Special requirements apply to rear-ventilated façade constructions. Not only the individual building materials, but also the entire system including substructure, insulation, joining elements, etc. must meet the fire safety requirements. In Great Britain, extensive large-scale fire tests were carried out by the testing institute BRE according to BS 8414-1. ALPOLICTM composite panels /fr and A2 fulfilled the high requirements of BR 135. This was proven in 11 different test setups.
