av_new tested its fire-resistant elements at CSI S.p.A.
A test sample was performed on a wall by applying a flame to the base of the wall for a given period of time. The av_new wall behaved in an excellent way, perfectly resisting to the fire and keeping overall integrity of the elements without generating drip until the end of the test. The av_new system is the first to be awarded the maximum allowable class of fire resistance, B-S1-D0, where:
B is the maximum allowable class for items that have content of not flammable combustible material.
S1 (Smoke) is the maximum allowable class referred to the production of smoke during combustion.
D0 (Dripping) is the maximum allowable class referred to drip.
