We are happy to announce you that we obtained the ETA certification for the intumescent pillows AF BAGS designed to grant EI 120/180 to walls and floors passed through by cables placed on cable trays.

AF Systems is the first and unique company that obtained this type of certifications on penetration seals.

The "European Technical Assesment", known as "ETA", is a certification that gather all classification reports of a product; not only fire resistance tests but also tests regarding regarding the durability, identification of the chemical-physical characteristics and possible other properties such as materials' fire reaction. This "assemble" is carried out by specialized bodies called TABs (Technical Assesment Bodies) and examined for each EOTA type of application, the organization that unites all TABs in Europe.

Within the service installations compartmentalization, obtaining this type of certifications represents a necessary passage for the companies that decide to obtain the CE marking (eventhough optional) for its products.
