the expert in fire-resistant counters
If the counter in your building forms part of a fire partition, it goes without saying that the counter itself must also be fire resistant. Are you looking for a fire-resistant counter? Then you need look no further than aalbers|wico - the specialist in structural fire security. We manufacture, supply and install fire-resistant counters 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 counters has not only been calculated on paper – it has been tested in practice too. At our own test centre we can see how the components used stand up to the toughest of conditions. We make use of a fire test furnace for this.
Our counters 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 counter offering the actual level of resistance you need. The official standards form the starting point here, but the counter undergoes further testing on the basis of additional criteria.

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