To provide specifiers with additional confidence, Lindapter commissioned BRE Global to run third party fire tests in accordance with BS EN 1991-1-2 on a range of its decking fixings – installed in concrete backed composite decking profiles. The BRE test report P116310 Issue 1 verified load limits for 60 minute and 90 minute fire ratings.
Lindapter’s extensive range of high-quality, cost-effective decking fixings are conveniently installed by locking inside the dovetail re-entrant channels of popular composite decking profiles. This innovative technique provides an adjustable fixing point for suspending mechanical and electrical equipment that is fast to install and does not compromise the strength of the deck.
Lindapter’s decking fixings are manufactured from steel and iron, which are listed in Commission Decision 96/603/EC as materials that make ‘no contribution to fire’ and are considered as Class A1 ‘Reaction to Fire Performance’ without the need for additional fire safety testing.
In addition to the above, Lindapter International’s range of decking fixings are also considered to satisfy the requirements of performance Class A1 non-combustible for the characteristic ‘Reaction to Fire’ in accordance with the EC decision 96/603/EC.
