The F Range, W20 and W40 steel profile has received a new five year approval by Exova Warringtonfire centre after passing several fire integrity tests to maintain the BS fire ratings.
The review of assessment report referenced WFRC No. C118420 deemed the data used in the original appraisal as satisfactory.
The re-appraisal of the Fire Test Study Group Resolution 64A: 1993 means that SWA members can assure specifiers that the F Range can provide 30 or 60 minutes fire integrity, enabling contractors to continue using steel framed windows in places such as stairwells and escape routes around a variety of buildings.
