Every bonded unit is given a unique reference number which enables us to have full traceability. Using this number we can quickly ascertain date of production, material used, priming requirements, glass specification and who glazed, bonded and packed the unit. Each and every unit is subject to a final inspection and sign off before leaving the factory.
At project completion we can collate all of this information into an Operations and Maintenance manual, a copy of which can be sent to the silicone supplier who will issue the warranty.
As an IIP company we believe in the development of all staff and in strong communication from management to work force and vice versa.
We have put this in to practice with our modular skills training system which allows every employee to achieve in all areas of production. This has resulted in a highly skilled and flexible work force.
We have held the standard since its inception in 2006 and we are audited against it on a yearly basis.
All projects undertaken using SG500 are audited and warranted by SIka.
The test sequence was to determine the weather tightness of the sample with respect to air permeability, water penetration, and wind resistance. The vent passed both BS and CEN standards at the first attempt. We then retested using 100PA as the test criteria and still passed class 4 in all categories.
The following summarises the results of testing carried out, in accordance with BS 6375 part 1: 2004 and the relevant testing and classification standards.
|Test method & Classification Standard||Achieved Max. Test Pressure.||Classification|
|Air Permeability||BS EN 1026:2000 |
BS EN 12207:2000
|Water Tightness||BS EN 1027:2000 |
BS EN 12208:2000
|Wind Resistance||BS EN 12211:2000 |
BS EN 12210:2000
|P1: 2400 Pa |
P2: 1200 Pa
P3: 3600 Pa

The explosion pressure measurements were as follows;
Peak reflected pressure (on front face) – 383.7 kPa
Average reflected pressure (across face) – 343.9 kPa
Peak reflected impulse (total blast energy) – 547.7 kPa msec
Average reflected impulse (across face of test specimen) – 486.6 kPa msec
Duration of blast load – 6.17 msec
The test results showed that the combination of our frames and DC993 structural sealant performed exceptionally well under the blast loading and no evidence was found of any form of delamination.
