Fatra is committed to quality management and attained ISO 9001 Certification (Quality management) in 1994, not only for the design and manufacture of membranes but also for the design and manufacture of raw PVC products.
In 2000, Fatra because one of the first PVC membrane manufacturers to obtain ISO 14001 Certification (Environmental management), again for the design and manufacture of both membranes and raw PVC.
BBA testing combines a number of tests including physical performance, weathertightness, durability and fire resistance to certify that the product is fit for purpose. BBA certifies the Fatrafol membranes have a life expectancy in excess of 30 years.
FLL is a global test for root penetration resistance. Fatrafol membranes successfully passed the FLL testing and are deemed fully root resistant and are suitable for green roofs, planter box and sedum roof systems.
The BRE Environmental Profiles Scheme measures the environmental performance of materials and products over their entire lifecycle through their extraction, processing, construction, use and maintenance, and their eventual demolition and disposal. These assessments provide information on key issues of environmental sustainability such as climate change, acidification, consumption of minerals and water, emissions and pollutants to water and air.
Fatra have had a number of complete roof build-ups independently tested and assessed by the BRE achieving an ‘A+’ BREEAM rating. Fatra are also the first PVC membrane manufacturer to obtain a set of Ecopoint ratings from the BRE.
FM Approvals is an international leader in third-party testing and certification services. FM Approvals 4470 certify the Fatrafol membrane as a class A system, the highest in its category.
An FM Approved roof signifies a fully tested roof assembly, not simply a collection of independent products and components that may or may not perform as expected. FM Approvals test a vast array of performance criteria such as fire performance, heat and hail damage, wind uplift and much more
BRE Global is a globally accredited testing laboratory which comprehensively tests, predicts and assesses the fire performance of products and materials to British, European, Marine and International fire-test standards.
Fatra have had a number of complete roof build-ups (substrate, vapour control layer, insulation, membrane and relevant ancillary products) tested to replicate an actual roof construction.
Fatra PVC membrane is a naturally fire resistant polymer, the Fatra membrane is flame retardant. All of our roofing membranes have achieved at least an AC* rating which equates to a European classification of BROOF (t4). Under BS 476, any build-up which achieves a rating of AC or above is classified as ‘unrestricted’ and can be used anywhere on the roof
