More panels prototyped and tested by Focchi

In the activities related to the RenoZEB envelope prototype testing and validation, Focchi team has prototyped and tested further facade panels.

Two tests have already been conducted with positive results:

1) an acoustic mock-up test (on the left) under UNI EN ISO 16283-3:2016/EC 1-2016/EC 2-2016 and UNI EN ISO 717-1:2013 (IN-OUT test) with an acoustic insulation performance moved from 46dB of the only building envelope to 57dB after the installation of the RenoZEB panels;

2) a performance mock-up test (on the right) under UNI EN 13830:2005 passing positively the tests and achieving the standard for CE certification.

In the next weeks, a further test under EN 13823 (classification SBI) will be conducted to understand the reaction to fire of the RenoZEB panel.
