The "LNE FEU PS" certification is the best way to demonstrate compliance with the requirements for expanded polystyrene raw materials or for extruded polystyrene used for the thermal insulation of the facades like in the framework of IT249 regulations.
The regulatory requirements for facades are based on the regulations of 15 April 2010 and Technical Instruction No IT249 which require the manufacturer to set up provisions relating to the fire behavior of raw materials for expanded polystyrene (EPS ) or of extruded polystyrene (XPS).
The LNE FEU PS certification is aimed at producers of raw materials for expanded polystyrene and of extruded polystyrene and allows prescribers, contractors, users of the building distribution to ensure compliance with the regulatory requirements.
LNE ensures the fire performance of the product and its maintenance via a reaction to fire class of the product at least equivalent to D-s3, d2, as well as the flame retardant monitoring of extruded polystyrene or of raw materials for expanded polystyrene at the producer through annual inspections of manufacturing sites and specific fire tests at the plant's laboratory.
Together with the "LNE feu PS" certification, manufacturers of raw materials for expanded polystyrene could be certified in accordance with the E class certification as defined in Annex E of EN13163 standards for raw materials. This certification allows EPS raw materials transformers to reduce the CPU frequency for the evaluation of the reaction to fire of samples made of expanded EPS raw material.
