BBA Testing

Insuletics External Wall Insulation (EWI) systems have undergone rigorous British Board of Agreement (BBA) testing regimes in the UK to the exacting standards of ETAG 004 (European Technical Approval Guidelines).

The company managed the collaboration between the major UK testing houses, BBA, BRE, CERAM and Exova to fully examine Insuletics systems for compliance to the highest technical standards, including BS EN 13501 SBI (Single Burn Items) fire test to achieve ‘A’ Classification and the full scale BS 8414 fire test for Phenolic Foam. This enables the Insuletics Phenolic Foam systems to be used on High Rise buildings without the requirement for firebreaks.

This is a first in the UK and a testimony to all staff who took part both within Insuletics and the practical professional scientific expertise demonstrated at the UK testing establishments.
