The Armaflex Ultima range of low-smoke elastomeric insulation materials have been tested and are now certified by FM Approvals, a division of FM Global.
The FM Approvals certificate applies to the complete range of both standard and self-adhesive Armaflex Ultima sheet and tube products, which provide maximum installation safety and ensure optimum operating efficiency. The closed cell construction of these insulation materials combines low thermal conductivity with high resistance to water vapour transmission, ensuring long-term protection against thermal energy losses and condensation. In addition, in the event of a fire Armaflex Ultima generates much less smoke than traditional elastomeric products, providing an important contribution to the safety of personnel within buildings.
As an internationally recognised testing standard for certifying products that prevent property loss in industrial or commercial applications, many international companies now stipulate the use of FM approved materials in their specifications in public invitations to tender. Their certificates, which are also recognised in Europe, ensure that plant and products comply with the highest quality and safety standards. FM Approvals is also a notified body of the European Construction Products Regulation (CPR) and certifying body of the EOTA.
