As there is no appropriate standard for monitors, we had the monitors tested according to DIN EN 13501-1 for the classification of building products. The positive result allows our customers to use the monitors in application areas such as escape routes, stairways, next to elevators and anywhere where strict fire regulations apply. The sleek, high-quality POS-Line monitors are proven in industrial environments and always featured high functionality and flexibility. The certification as a smoke and fire load optimized device now opens up additional opportunities.
The fire behavior, that is, the inflammability and the combustibility of the monitor was determined on the basis of the SBI method according to DIN EN 13823: 2010-12. The SBI method is a fire test for building products and investigates the response of a product (excluding flooring materials) when it is exposed to a thermal attack typifying fire involving a single burning item. The fire test showed that the monitor undercut the limits for classification according to DIN EN 13501-1 class B-s1, d0 all categories. Thus, it achieved the best level in the class “difficult to ignite”.
Depending on the screen size, the fire load of the optimized POS-Line monitor is: 30.20 kWh at 800.1 mm (31.5″), 36.85 kWh at 1066.8 mm (42″), 39.57 kWh at 1168.4 mm (46″ ) and 45.67 kWh at 1386.8 mm (54.6 “). The fire load is the energy that an object evaporates when burned and which is to be considered for protective measures for a possible structural fire.
