The large number of fire test performed have made it possible for us to determine the different combustion times for a total number of 35 historical building ceiling structure designs to enable us to categorise the refurbishing needs (for improved fire protection) when using an Elascon timber+concrete structure. Since virtually every structural project will be different in the overall building concept, each situation must be considered on its merits. However, in combination with Euro-Code, our own data collection will allow you to confidently formulate verifiable procedures for improvement of the fire resistance at an early stage of planning and design.
We are the only manufacturer who is able to issue test certificates that will stand up to challenge by expert testing engineers. We have deliberately resisted to resort to the use of previous information in literature, and do not go in for risky simulations.
