About the product:
The Fire-x 1620 –EN is a slope mounted louvre bladed fire ventilator that has a low profile design to magnify the architectural aesthetics of any building.
The louvred blades are designed to close individually over its own rain channel, providing a waterproof system in the locked position. In the event of fire, the spring loaded louvred blades open automatically to allow heated gasses to exhaust. This will aid in the building’s structural integrity against collapse.
The smokeless layer of fresh air created at lower level creates a safe evacuation passage for people and assists in firefighting disciplines. Natural day-to-day ventilation is made possible with the addition of an electromechanical operating system.
The key difference between Fire-x 1620 and fire-x 1620 EN:
It differs from the Fire-x 1620 in that it has been tested, certified and fulfils the European Union’s standard requirements (EN). All the provisions concerning the assessment and verification of consistency of performance described in annex ZA of EN 12101-2:2003-09 are applied. The ventilator proudly bares the CE mark.
More about the CE Marking:
The CE marking is a certification mark that indicates conformity with health, safety and environmental protection standards for products sold within the European Economic Area (EEA). The CE marking is also found on products distributed outside the EEA that are manufactured in or designed to be sold in, the EEA. This makes the CE marking recognizable worldwide even to people who are not familiar with the European Economic Area.
The CE marking is the manufacturer's declaration that the product meets the requirements of the applicable EC directives.
The mark consists of the CE logo and if applicable, the four digit identification numbers of the Notified Body involved in the conformity assessment procedure.
There are certain rules underlying the procedure to affix the marking:
Products subject to certain EU directives or EU regulations providing for CE marking have to be affixed with the CE marking before they can be placed on the market.
Manufacturers have to check, on their sole responsibility, which EU legislation they need to apply for their products.
The product may be placed on the market only if it complies with the provisions of all applicable directives and regulations and if the conformity assessment procedure has been carried out accordingly.
The manufacturer draws up an EU declaration of conformity or a declaration of performance (for Construction Products) and affixes the CE marking on the product.
If stipulated in the directive(s) or regulation(s), an authorized third party (Notified Body) must be involved in the conformity assessment procedure or in setting up a production quality system.
If the CE marking is affixed on a product, it can bear other markings only if they are of extraordinary significance, do not overlap with the CE marking and are not confusing and do not impair the legibility and visibility of the CE marking.
Since achieving compliance can be exceedingly complex, CE-marking conformity assessment, provided by a notified body, is of considerable importance throughout the entire CE-marking process, from design verification, and set up of the technical file to the EU declaration of conformity.
