Classification of formaldehyde limits
according to EN 717-1
Our original reclaimed wood laminated products meet the new formaldehyde limits in accordance with the German Chemicals Prohibition Order (ChemVerbotsV).
With regard to the German Chemicals Prohibition Order annex 1 (to annex 3) (ChemVerbotsV BGBI I S.94), coated and uncoated wood materials sold on the market from 01 January 2020 must meet the limit values of 0.1 ppm and 0.124 mg/m3 required for emission class E1. According to the Federal Gazette, published by the Federal Ministry of Justice and Consumer Protection on 26 November 2018 (Banz AT 26.11.2018 B2), the results generated by applying EN 717-1 must be multiplied by a factor of 2.0.
Using a standardised procedure, Holzforschung Austria analysed our laminated wood products for formaldehyde emissions in accordance with Austrian standard ÖNORM EN-717-1 using the acetylacetone method.
In the case of the original reclaimed wood laminated product analysed, values of 0.01 mg/m3 or 0.008 ppm are achieved.
These therefore meet the requirements of the German Chemicals Prohibition Order and correspond to emission class E1.
Classified fire behaviour
according to EN 13501-1
Benefit from reclaimed wood with classified fire behaviour!
Many of our clients work in the building industry and construction sector. Standards and classifications, in particular fire resistance, form the basis for the application of all building materials.
In the case of original reclaimed wood products, which naturally have very individual properties, it is often not easy to meet standards that are tailored to standardized products. Of course, we have nevertheless tried to find a solution for our customers!
In a complex and lengthy process, we have had the fire behaviour of our products classified in accordance with ÖNORM EN 13501-1: 2007 + A1: 2009 together with the Institute for Fire Protection Technology and Safety Research (IBS). The various original reclaimed wood surfaces were tested and classified in standardized test arrangements. Therewith, the reclaimed wood 3-layer products can be used in any public construction project that requires a verifiable fire behaviour!
