Exova Warrington Fire

Exova is a world renowned testing group who we used to ensure our product could achieved a good fire rating. To our delight the product passed first time and achieve a fire rating of B-s1, d0 or Class 0. We use fire retarded EPS which is coated in a noncombustible mortar. When installed correctly the EPS should not be exposed to fire, thus why the product can achieve such a high fire rating. In fact, the only thing limiting us achieving a higher rating is the fact our product does contain a combustible product (EPS) even though it performs as a noncombustible substance.
