CSIRO was recently contracted by AFS Products Group Pty Ltd to conduct a fire resistance test on AFS 120 LOGICWALL wall panels to satisfy the requirements of the BCA 2009 Revision.
AFS 120 wall panels achieved the outstanding FRL of 240/240/180.
Specifications of the LOGICWALL specimen provided for the test:
- 120mm thick wall panels
- Size: 3000mm x 3000mm
- Minimum reinforcement N12 600cts Horizontal, 400cts Vertical
- Concrete 32MPa AFS Mix
- Applied Test Load: 700kN or 233kN/m
AFS 120 LOGICWALL wall panels of these dimensions are typically installed as fire rated walls on 7.5m grids, 170mm floor slab and 5 – 6 levels for typical floors.
The test was successfully conducted at CSIRO Materials Science & Engineering, Fire Testing & Assessments Laboratory in North Ryde, NSW in November 2011.
