Fire rating


 

Oberflex is the first manufacturer to have obtained the Euroclasse B classification (very limited fire contributor) for its reveneered wood layer panels, in conformance with the new European norm for fire treatment classification introduced in 2002. Since the beginning of 2010, Oberflex has worked toward the classification of its entire range according to this norm.

This new classification is expected to progressivly replace the old national fire classification (M2, M1…). It is first and foremost a requirement for the implementation process with the regulated openings (establishments received from the public, high-rise flats, etc.) and for obtaining the CE label.

This new classification for materials’ reaction to fire, is subject to the satisfaction of real usage condition trials which are very different from those of the national classification « M ».

It is agreed that all Oberflex products can be ordered vis-a-vis classification M1 (panels to be reveneered, panels that are ready to be layered).

 

 



IMO – classification de réaction au feu dans le secteur maritime

Une des normes les plus difficiles à obtenir ( IMO : organisation maritime internationale- (navire de croisière))

La certification IMO se fait à partir du code international pour l’application des méthodes d’essai au feu (code FTP) et s’accompagne du MED (Marine Équipement Directive).

Pour obtenir cette certification, les panneaux Oberflex ont passé avec succès les tests d’incombustibilité, de toxicité ainsi que la mesure des dégagements de fumées.

Le certificat IMO concerne tous les bateaux de plaisance et les navires marchands.
