FM Approvals is one of the most recognised certification services worldwide, with a focus on the preservation of goods. The process applies to many product types and is articulated in numerous standards based on scientific research and over 100 years of experience.
The standards include sampling, testing and periodic surveillance and are extended to product (understood in its installed condition) and process. The characteristics examined are load-bearing capacity, fire resistance, functionality of the ducts with regard to flame propagation, self-closing/self-latching devices of the doors, and containment of hazardous leaks.
Specific adaptations of the product and quality control system may be necessary.
Systems approved by Factory Mutual are entered in the FM APPROVAL GUIDE database. Find the links below.
