Certified fire characteristics – class B-s1 d0 | class A2-s1 d0
ALUCOBOND® is the original German quality ACM with full BBA approval and highest fi re standards for cladding materials.
On-going commitment to provide the safest, highest quality, innovation façade solutions to the architectural façades market.
3A Composites proved with four BS8414 Large Scale Fire Tests carried out by BRE in late 2016 and early 2017 that the general
requirements of the Building Regulation, Approved Document B, provide suffi cient fi re safety when adopting the European fi re
classifi cations: Rainscreen systems with limited combustible mineral insulation (min. EN-class A2) and ALUCOBOND® PLUS
(EN-class B-s1, d0) shows no spread of fl ame or critical temperature rise.
These systems exceed the requirement of BR135. The tests commissioned by the DCLG later in 2017 confi rmed the following
results: Rainscreen systems with polymeric insulation show a much higher risk for internal and external spread of fl ame to the
façade system when compared to systems with mineral insulation. Only in combination with limited combustible cladding,
particular fi xing systems and cavity barriers, rainscreen systems with polymeric insulation might meet the requirement of BR135.
