Following the successful results from its testing of King Stone’s new Super Fire Rated Concrete Lintels, Warrington Fire and Research is carrying out additional tests on the 215 mm x 215 mm 17-20 Concrete Lintel with the intention of replacing its current Dutch supplier.
BRE systems, the other UK premier test facility, has also opted to run tests on the Super Fire Rated Concrete Lintels, and King Stone expects the results to provide further supporting data.
The concrete lintels are expected to withstand repeated heating and cooling cycles without ill effect. This will provide further supporting evidence that King Stone’s new Super Fire Rated Concrete Lintels are indeed the best fire rated concrete lintels on the market, and illustrate that they will suffer no degradation should they get wet on site, even if they are hosed down following a fire.
“To be approached by two of the UK’s premier testing facilities is very exciting indeed and should go further in ensuring that the right lintels are used in the correct positions where fire hazards may be prevalent, especially inside stadiums, schools, hospitals, art galleries, and conference centres. Most of these buildings have sprinkler systems, and the last thing you would want would be the building to survive but the lintel to require remedial work following such an event, or indeed it to be defaced in some way to affect its structural or fire resistance capabilities.” ~ Shaun King, Managing Director, King Stone Products Ltd.
