The Chemolli Fire solution
Production is carried out with our assistance and supervision. We organise and manage sample collection and sampling, both to comply with UL testing and certification methods, and to meet the requirements of EN 16034, the product standard for fire and smoke resistant closures.
In Applus laboratories (Barcelona), the doors are subjected to 5500 opening and closing cycles according to EN 1191, as required by DM 21.06.2004.
Once the certificates had been obtained, Chemolli Fire also supported the customer during the IPI (Initial Production Inspection) carried out by a UL inspector.
Chemolli Fire has successfully assisted Barausse in the production of doors that meet the required standards, obtaining closures with EI 30 / FD 30 with hose and FD 20 no hose and EI 60 / FD 20 no hose resistance.
Finally, two of the doors were also tested for smoke tightness, while the third was successfully evaluated for the same performance.
