By MPA Stuttgart proof of availability for a rough skirt system to receive according to the construction products directive, test, an endurance function test with at least 1000 cycles is required. This test includes for example, that the rough apron runs 1000 times in the working position and 1000 times back in the rest position. After the internal tests and modifications to the system were completed, was therefore the official examination by the independent Institute of MPA Stuttgart”(material testing Institute in Stuttgart University) started on November 11, 2010 and continuously monitored via webcam. Due to the fact that the tubular motor needed a rest after the respective cycle, the time for one cycle (movement and rest-pause) has been set to 10 minutes. Also had to be taken into account, that this time of year strong autumn winds can affect the test. Thus, the wind speed had continuously measured and directly in the control be processed. Successful certification of test was finished according to EN 12101-1 on November 26, 2010 with 1001 cycles.
Following, the facility was inspected and positively evaluated by the test engineer of the MPA Stuttgart. “The objective of certification according to EN to achieve 12101-1, had to undergo a further examination, because the Colt smoke also plants in the order master large size” must resist the temperatures of the hot flue gases in the event of an emergency. This 12101-1 has been tested locally in the MPA Stuttgart reduced an adequate performance parameters system – however on 3 x 3 m and equipped with additional weights, which simulate the height of 15 metres, – according to standards of EN successfully. An automatic system of smoke aprons in the dimension of Colt developed is unique in the world as a standard product. The Certified smoke master-SM5-system in the large-size version”meets the increased demands in the preventive fire protection and which have proven in the system design and quality of Colt international.
