New Fire and Impact Safety Certifications for Unicel Products

 

New Fire and Impact Safety Certifications for Unicel Products

Unicel’s Vision Control® integrated louvers and ViuLite® integrated blinds have always been tough and dependable – so much so that our award-winning fire safety ratings of 20, 45, 60 and 90 minutes for doors, windows, transoms and sidelights have been available for almost a decade.

But it gets even better. That’s because we’ve just earned two new industry certifications that even further illustrate the rugged resiliency of our products:

New fire rating

Our Vision Control and ViuLite privacy and shading solutions have achieved a 45-minute fire resistance rating from global safety certification company UL LLC, including the hose-stream test, using our newly developed steel trim kits in door applications. Unicel’s new fire-rated door trim combines with fire-rated Vision Control, Vision Control Mini®, and ViuLite units to form a fully fire-resistant door application.

New impact rating

Vision Control has also passed American Architectural Manufacturers’ Association (AAMA) 501.8 performance testing for resistance to human impacts (2,000 ft-lbs) within building interiors, for behavioral health applications.

In the case of our new fire rating, Unicel products meet UL fire-resistance rated assemblies standards through the Unicel-manufactured steel trim kits combined with Pilkington Pyrostop® fire-rated glazing.

AAMA 501.8 is the standard industry test to determine the human impact resistance of window systems intended for use in psychiatric applications. It involves applying force to the window via a weighted device, to simulate the impact of a patient running into it at full speed.

We’ll be formally announcing these and other exciting developments at Unicel Architectural in the new year. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out anytime – and in the meantime I wish you and your family a safe and happy holiday season.
