The results of the fire and strength tests were very good for Ruukki and highly competitive in relation to other manufacturers of sandwich panels. A certificate received based on 4880 and 4881 norms allows the use of panels both as internal partitions (walls and ceilings) and external partitions, in accordance with FM Approvals requirements.
Ruukki’s panels were awarded the widest possible scope of application, including no limitations as to the admissible height of a building. Additionally, our sandwich panels designed for external walls, unlike competitive solutions, can provide longer spans and withstand the accompanying high loads coming from wind pressure and suction.
An FM Approvals certificate for construction products is necessary for an investor or property owner to obtain insurance based on FM norms. FM Approvals certificates for products and services are awarded by the world’s biggest American insurance company FM Global. Their application contributes significantly to minimizing loss risks such as buildings’ destruction and disruption of business activities. The validity of an FM certificate is assessed in regular audits at production sites, confirming the maintenance of quality standards.
We will soon publish the FM certificate and relevant information on our websites and in marketing materials, proper labels will also be added to the packages of panels covered by the certificate.
