DynaPanel Glass achieves industry leading A1 Fireclass
Dynamic Cladding headquarters in London, UK, April 17, 2017
Dynamic Cladding announces its DynaPanel Glass system has achieved A1 Non-combustible Fireclass to EN13501-1:2007+A1:2009. DynaPanel Glass is now an industry-leading product, possibly the only glass composite cladding system achieving A1 Fireclass. The testing was conducted by Exova Warrington Fire, one of the world’s leading laboratory-based testing groups. Exova’s participation carries with it the weight of its 90 years of experience and over 4,200 experts working in 33 countries.
Fireclass testing puts a material’s reaction to fire behavior on trial and helps determine the ideal fields of application for the substance. It examines every possible quality and element of the material and assigns a rating based on how the subject responds to and withstands the stress of fire. The Exova Warrington Fire facility carried out comprehensive tests on the material in accordance with the EN13501-1:2007+A1:2009. The results were extremely positive: A1 is the best possible rating that can be reached on the scale. This means that DynaPanel Glass’ fire resistance has been deemed to be equal to that of concrete and steel. Development Manager Nathan Kirk stated the following: “Our target was to achieve an A2 fireclass but after years of development efforts, we are thrilled to overachieve the target and gain the highest rating possible of A1. This provides our clients with the assurance DynaPanel Glass can be used on any building, irrespective of its height.
