British/European Standard BS EN 60068-2-6 Environmental Testing (Vibration)
In accordance with BS EN 60068-2-6, a British UKAS-Accredited test house conducted seven resonance (vibration) endurance tests, each of six hours duration, plus an additional six hour swept endurance test between the frequencies of 74Hz and 87Hz on one axis. After each resonance endurance dwell, the setscrews were visually checked for any movement. Throughout the whole test programme, there was no evidence of any loosening of the setscrews. Further technical information relating to the test is available on request.
Australian Standard AS 1657-2013 - Fixed Platforms, Walkways, Stairways & Ladders: Design, Construction & Installation
Typical Interclamp installations of our Traditional Range, DDA Assist and Pedestrian Barriers have been successfully proof load tested in both C42 and D48 sizes in compliance with the procedures specified in AS 1657-2013, by an independent NATA and ISO/IEC 17025 accredited test house.
Australian Standard AS 1428.1-2009 Design for Access & Mobility Part 1: General Requirements for Access – New Building Work
Interclamp DDA Assist fittings may be used to build handrails that conform to AS 1428.1-2009. As this standard is for finished structures, it is important that the correct Interclamp fittings and other materials (most notably tube, fixings and existing structure or substrate to which the Interclamp structure is attached) are chosen for each application and that the complete structures are both suitably designed and installed to meet the requirements of the standard.
Australian Market only: Interclamp® Compliance Statement
A Compliance Statement, which makes reference to the most relevant Australian Standards is available on request. It includes details of Inspection, Testing & Servicing requirements, in order to satisfy the needs of the standards.
Beam tests for uniformly-distributed loads have been successfully carried out by an independent British load test facility. Further details are available on request.
British Standard BS 476-7:1997 Fire tests on building materials and structures. Method of test to determine the classification of the surface spread of flame of products
The Interclamp FRP / GRP system is fire resistant and has been successfully tested in Great Britain and classified as BS 476: Part 7 : 1997 Class 2 by a UKAS accredited laboratory.
All new stocks of Interclamp Handrail Tube, including pre-cut posts that are supplied in the original mill-produced lengths, show a Heat Number and are hence traceable to the original production batch. Test certificates are therefore available on request for this material. In addition, Interclamp fittings in original foundry packaging are traceable to production batches.
