    Case Study
    Building Research Establishment (BRE)
    Configuration
    Aku125
    Fascia
    SoundBloc
    The Aku125 independent twin-faced configuration, with the SoundBloc fascia, was tested at the Building Research Establishment (BRE) for fire resistance of a non-loadbearing wall, in accordance with BS EN 1364-1: 2015. Integrity failure occurred, through continuous flaming, after 79 minutes. The minimum periods of fire resistance, as set-out in the Building Regulations Approved Document B, for most elements of structure (excluding "firefighting shafts"), in most building purpose groups (excluding “industrial” & “storage” (without a sprinkler system)), are 30 or 60 minutes, where the depth of the lowest basement is up to 10 m, & the height of the top floor above ground is up to 18 m.
