Metal Safe Sign has tested different types of escape and guidance products. Below you'll
find abstracts of the tests carried out. The two different products tested were: One type
made of solid plastics and the other type made of thin plastic surface attached to steel
sheets. The fire technical behavior of the two types of material were quite different.
This was mainly due to the difference of the content of combustible substance of the two
materials. The contribution of heat and smoke to a room fire situation is of course
dependent of the amount of exposed sign material. For the steel
sheet materials the measured heat and smoke production were very limited. For the
solid plastic materials the heat and smoke production were considerably higher.
The calculated chloride production was
considerably higher for the solid plastic material compared to the steel sheet materials.
The production of carbonmonoxcide was about 10
times higher for the solid plastic materials compared to the steel sheet materials.
Steel sheet materials are not deformed in
temperatures below 190oC. The PVC sign material ... deformed at 59oC.
according to ISO 5659-2 (1994)
The tested samples of the product called "Trippel L (Low Location Lighting) meet the
technical fire requirements according to IMO Res.61(67), Annex 1, Part 2, section 2.6.
Spread of flame and rate
of heat release according to IMO A.653(16)
The tested samples of the product called "Triple L (Low Location Lighting)" is
deemed to meet the technical fire requirements for low flame spread of bulkhead, wall and
ceiling linings according to IMO Resolution A.653 (16).
The tested samples of the product called
"Triple L (Low Location Lighting)" can also be deemed to meet the technical fire
requirements for surfaces having low flame-spread characteristics on bulkhead, wall and
ceilings according to IMO Res. MSC.61 (67), Annex 1, Part 5, section 2. (Full text here).
