System Tests

Siderise are strong advocates of large-scale system testing and have participated in a significant number of such tests (including BS 8414, NFPA 285). This has provided considerable data which is invaluable in determining the performance of our cavity barriers.

A selection of the external cladding system tests that have used Siderise cavity barrier products are summarised below. The table contains generic summary descriptions only. No inference is made or intended, that similar systems comprising generically similar materials will provide the same performance.

In all cases, please make direct contact with the test sponsor for details of the tested assembly, design, system performance and classification. Links to information in the public domain are provided for convenience.

Please note

Guidance information from Ministry of Housing, Communities & Local Government,

Further information will be added as new tests are undertaken and/or new system test reports become available. In the meantime, if you require any information on our products listed below or if you would like our assistance and advice for large scale system testing, please contact us.
