The FLO series: red-hot for your security
Monitors in public areas serve passers-by and visitors as an information and guidance system. Often such monitors are located in places which are also designated as escape routes for which special fire protection rules apply. These stringent fire protection requirements make it difficult to install monitors, for example, in hospitals, universities or airports and in public areas of buildings such as stairways and corridors, which are also to be used as escape routes in the event of a fire.
For applications in in fire-sensitive areas, monitors usually must be installed in fire-safe enclosures. These housings increase the cost of the devices in procurement and assembly, are difficult to access for maintenance and don't have a modern look. Distec has therefore developed new monitors that meet the requirements of fire protection, even without a separate housing.
Certificated displays without smoke gas development according to B-s1,d0
The monitors have been tested according to DIN EN 13501-1 with SBI method EN 13823:2015-02 and are clearly below the limit values of class B-s1,d0 in all categories. The fire test showed that Distec's fire-load-optimized monitors are difficult to ignite (B), do not emit smoke gas (s1) and do not produce flaming droplets (d0). This is the best classification next to non-flammable.
The monitors feature a fireproof protective glass and a stable housing made of sheet steel. They are available as a monitor for external control or with an integrated PC and each monitor is accompanied by a certificate confirming its fire class.
