the expert in fire-resistant compartments
It goes without saying that you will want to offer the people in your building a safe escape route in the event that a fire breaks out or there is smoke inside the building. You will also want to prevent fire and smoke from spreading (quickly) to other parts of your premises. Compartmentalisation offers a solution here. Why not contact aalbers|wico - the specialist in structural fire security!
We manufacture, supply and install fire-resistant compartments precisely in accordance with your 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 compartments has not only been calculated on paper – it has been tested in practice too. At our own test centre we can see how the materials used stand up to the toughest of conditions. We make use of a fire test furnace for this.
Our compartments 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 compartment offering the actual level of resistance you need. The official standards form the starting point here, but the compartment undergoes further testing on the basis of additional criteria.

We test the fire resistance of all our compartments 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 compartments is broadly defined on the basis of two factors: the function of the compartment (e.g. supporting, separating, insulating, etc.) and the length of time for which the compartment is able to maintain this function when exposed to fire.
