PSA Products – UK Standard
Kingspan were actively involved in the creation of the PSA (Public Services Agency) MOB PF2 PS performance standards prior to their release in 1992. This standard is still the de facto reference for the UK construction sector, as its stringent full system compliance metrics are clearly defined, straightforward and well understood by architects, specifiers and contractors.
There are four UK classifications for load carrying capability: Light Grade, Medium Grade, Heavy Grade and Extra Heavy Grade. The Light, Medium, Heavy and Extra Heavy grades ALL have a three times safety factor. Testing and certification for compliance with one of the four standards MUST be carried out by an independent testing station with NAMAS accreditation.
In addition to the certification of manufacturing standards, PSA MOB PF2 PS also requires that the installation methodology is clearly defined and verified.
