Reduce risk for your projects with our LPCB approved steel cladding panels for roof and wall
Both LPCB and FM Approvals are internationally recognised fully independent 3rd party fire and mechanical resistance testing and certification schemes that include full scale testing programmes to ensure compliance and performance.
Construction products and materials that come from a traceable, reputable and consistent supply chain offer much greater certainty in terms of their performance. They are therefore less risky to specify, and tend to benefit from more comprehensive testing and guarantees.
But what kind of tests are used to measure fire performance of building envelope systems, and how do they measure up in real life situations? The first consideration is that the tests must of course be independent.
At Tata Steel we use LPCB and FM Approvals for the best independent assessment for the applications (building types) that our products go into.
The Loss Prevention Certification Board (LPCB) is part of BRE Global who have worked with industry and insurers for more than 100 years to set the standards needed to ensure that fire and security products and services perform effectively. LPCB’s Loss Prevention Standards (LPS) are now widely recognised and applied in fire and security sectors around the world.
They offer third-party certification and ongoing surveillance audits confirming that products and services have met, and will continue to meet, these standards. Full details of the Loss Prevention Standards (LPS) are available online.
All fire and security products, services and companies certificated by LPCB to LPS and other industry standards are listed in the ‘RedBook’. These listings can be downloaded free of charge from RedBookLive.com.
FM Approvals is an international leader in third-party fire and mechanical testing and certification services. They test property loss prevention products and services - for use in commercial and industrial facilities - to verify that they meet rigorous loss prevention standards of quality, technical integrity and performance. The FM APPROVED mark is recognised worldwide.
