Recognised testing institute of the Swiss Association of Canton Fire Insurance VKF/AEAI

MFPA Leipzig GmbH is recognised by the VKF as a body for testing and assessing structures for obtaining VKF certification. Our test and assessment reports enable our clients to be added to the fire protection register of the VKF.

The fire protection guidelines of the VKF that apply in Switzerland are the legal basis for fire protection in buildings. The fire protection register of the VKF includes all products and specialist companies recognised by the VKF, as well as useful technical information for using building products that meet harmonised European requirements.

Below you will find some examples of construction systems that were added to the VKF fire protection register under our guidance.

Reinforced concrete stilts and corrugated panels made of high-strength concrete

Spray plaster and cladding for strengthening reinforced concrete structures

We help manufacturers of spray plaster and cladding panels to obtain VKF recognition of their fire-protection products through expert assessment of their products’ performance characteristics when used combined with reinforced concrete components, based on fire tests and calculations according to DIN EN 13381-3.

Fire protection systems and cladding for strengthening reinforced concrete structures

We help manufacturers of fire protection systems and cladding to obtain VKF recognition of their fire-protection products through expert assessment of their products’ performance characteristics when used combined with steel structures, based on fire testing and calculations according to DIN EN 13381-4.
