DIN 4102-1 – Class B1: Class B1 certifies that HI-MACS® has a low flammability. B1 class is the European fire resistance requirement. This test applies to the following ranges: Solids, Lucent, Sand & Pearl, Granite, Quartz, with a thickness of 12mm.
Warrington Fire – class 0:HI-MACS® successfully passed the European test EN 13501 – Class B-s1, d0, equivalent to the class 0 from Warrington Fire certification. This result is available for every HI-MACS®’ colours except Volcanics, Lucent, Marmo and Galaxy (test under process).
Abp (Allgemeines Bauaufsichtliches Prüfzeugnis) is a fire rating certificate that is mainly used in Germany. It highlights HI-MACS®’s low flammability.
LGA: Necessary in hospitals and environments where hygiene is critical, LGA assesses the ease of cleaning, resistance to bacteria and fungi and rates the design from a hygiene point of view. Thanks to its non-porosity, HI-MACS® has been approved for the LGA seal “hygiene tested”
NSF: NSF standards are generally accepted norms for a variety of public health related industries and fields. These include drinking water treatment and contact with materials, food equipment manufacturing etc. NSF recognises that HI-MACS complies with NSF norms.
Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) is a standard voluntary system to certify high performance of buildings, from the US Green Building Council (USGBC). LEED certifies buildings and systems using a credit system. The use of the Eden collection from HI-MACS® makes it possible to qualify a building for the IEQ Credit 4.1 “Low Emitting Materials – Adhesives and Sealants” (1 point), MR Credit 4.1 “Recycled Content 10%” (1 point) and MR Credit 4.2 “Recycled Content 20%” (1 point in addition to MR Credit 4.1) programmes.
Environmental Building Certificate – Grade “outstanding”: The Korean Air Cleaning Association certifies that HI-MACS® complies with the Korean regulations for environmental building materials. This test applies to all colours except Marmo and Galaxy (not tested).
ISO 14001: The ISO 14000 family concerns the management of environmental quality. The most popular certificate in this g roup is ISO 14001. It encour ages the minimisation of damage caused by our own activity to the environment and the continuous improvement of environmental performance. The objective is to contribute to protecting and stabilising our planet’s environment. This test certifies that the environment management system of HI-MACS® conforms to ISO 14001 standards.
Ministry of Environment of the Republic of Korea: designates HI-MACS® as environmentally-friendly thanks to the demonstration of its commitment to ecological awareness in its product management activities.
Greenguard: HI-MACS® has been approved by Greenguard in the USA, as a “low emitting product”. The organisation establishes acceptable indoor air standards for indoor products, environments and buildings. The organisation’s goal is to improve public health and quality of life through programs that improve indoor air.
ISO 9001: ISO 9001 criteria can guarantee the following points:
• The whole fabrication process, ensuring a good product quality
• Quality control, with an appropriate corrective procedure, when needed and regular control of quality control procedures.
• Process, which aims to continuously improve global efficiency
HI-MACS® FR Certificates
The HI-MACS® research and development centre created a specific formula that is ultra-resistant to fire and known as “HI-MACS®-FR”. Available in Alpine White and in 4 other Solid colours on special order, this product benefits from advanced fire rating certificates, as well as all of the common HI-MACS® properties.
DIN 4102-1 – Class B1: Class B1 certifies that HI-MACS® has a low flammability. Applicable to an extensive range of 12mm thick colours, HI-MACS® also provides the option of using 9mm thickness with the HI-MACS® FR formula.
IMO MED – Modules B and D: MED stands for Marine Equipment Directive. Both modules are extremely important for the shipbuilding industry, as they are mandatory for fabrication materials used in ships.
