Leminar conducts Flame Safe test successfully
Tests completed at Applus+ Laboratory in Spain for Leminar’s non-coated duct systems
HVAC manufacturers Leminar Air Conditioning Industries successfully tested and certified its Flame Safe non-coated duct systems for fire performance at Applus+ Laboratory in Spain.Flame Safe, which is designed and developed by Leminar, is a cost-effective alternative to coated type duct systems.
It was introduced to the market in early 2016, making Leminar the only manufacturer in the Middle East to produce both coated as well as non-coated type fire rated ducts within the same facility.
Recent test results have confirmed the product’s strict compliance with technical specifications required by British Standard 476 part 24 (ISO 6944) that relates to a ductwork’s ability to resist the spread of fire.
Flame Safe meets and exceeds the stability, integrity and insulation criteria set forth under this framework.
The results also validate Flame Safe’s superior quality and Leminar’s credible manufacturing practices.
Leminar Air Conditioning Industries general manager Dipak Bhadra said: “Integrity is an important value at Leminar. From our early days, we have voluntarily opted to subject all our products to rigorous testing in European countries.
“Testing helps increase the product's reliability by detecting latent defects, improves its quality and ensures any post-sale incidents. We believe it is one of the best ways to make sure we offer only the highest quality products to our customers,” he said.
Testing was conducted for both Type A (fire outside) and Type B (fire inside) uninsulated and insulated ducts suitable for smoke, ventilation, car park extract, pressurisation systems and commercial kitchen extract systems.
In addition to this testing, Leminar has also obtained certification and third party listing with Exova Warringtonfire, UK for Flame Safe.
