Thanks to the increasing attention being paid to fire and smoke resistance, the number of deaths and injuries resulting from fires in buildings has been falling for many years. Do you want to protect people, goods and buildings effectively against fire?
If so, the right structural security is essential. aalbers|wico has been the expert in this field for years. We advise clients and contractors on structural fire resistance. In addition, we can also manufacture, supply and install all the fire-resistant products that are needed in accordance with the applicable specifications.
If you wish, they can also be offered in combination with intruder-, ballistic- and blast-resistant properties.
tested in practice
The resistance value of our fire-resistant products has not only been calculated on paper – it has been tested in practice too.
At our own test centre we can see how our materials and installations stand up to the toughest of conditions. We make use of facilities including a fire test furnace for this.
Our products are based on the standards NEN 6075, 6068 as well as 6069, and EN 1634, 1364, 13501 and 15269, but we can also go one step further. If stipulated in the Schedule of Requirements, we can supply a sollution offering the actual level of resistance you need. The official standards form the starting point here, but the products undergo further testing on the basis of additional criteria.

We test the fire resistance of all our produts in our own test centre in accordance with the methods described in the applicable standards NEN 6069 and EN 1634. This is made possible with the help of facilities including a test furnace.

The resistance class of fire-resistant products is broadly defined on the basis of two factors: the function of the installation or building element (e.g. supporting, separating, insulating, etc.) and the length of time for which this element is able to maintain this function when exposed to fire.
