Evergreen Walls announces that their artificial green walls have been awarded an official Group 2 fire rating following extensive testing by Exova Warringtonfire.

The Evergreen Walls team travelled to Victoria in September this year to have their artificial green wall panels tested at a high-tech laboratory in Dandenong. The testing on the artificial green wall product, the first test of its kind in Australia, involved burning a room of 45 Evergreen panels.

Exova Warringtonfire conducted the test in accordance with industry standards AS ISO 9705-2003 and AS 5637.1:2015, placing a small gas fuelled box burner in the room of panels and measuring heat release rate and smoke density.

Following the testing, Evergreen’s panels are now the only artificial green wall product in Australia with an official Group 2 fire rating, which means these panels are deemed safe to install anywhere in a building except a fire escape.

The fire certification reaffirms to customers that Evergreen Walls’ artificial green wall panels are not only visually appealing but also fire safe.
