Smoke-tightness of smoke barriers

Determination of the smoke-tightness and functional capacity of smoke barriers

We perform tests at our test centre in accordance with EN 1634¬3 in order to determine the smoke-tightness and functional capacity of your smoke barriers.

The leakage rate Qspec(20) or Qspec(200) is determined in [m³/h] in accordance with EN 1634-3:2004 section 10.2. From this it is possible to determine and assess the leakage of cold and hot smoke from one side of the barrier to the other under specified test conditions.

We test, study and assess the smoke protection door or window structure, which you have installed into a test frame, in various load situations. Find out more here. 

The test reports can serve as proof for national use, in accordance with the German Building Regulation List (Bauregelliste, BRL), the German Model Building Code (Musterbauordnung, MBO) or within the context of the approval procedure of the German Institute for Structural Engineering (Deutsches Institut für Bautechnik, DIBt), as well as for the European certification of your smoke barriers (doors, windows, partitions).
