Multiple fire resistance tests for our esteemed customer ALUSYSTEMS (Aluminium Construction Systems Factory Co. Ltd) have been successfully carried out at our facility according to HRR (Heat Release Rate; simulated effect on a train enclosure derived from a cellulosic fire incident in a train), ISO 834-1 and RFC (Reference Fire Curve; a bin fire incident simulation occurred at platform area) relying on the CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) study prepared specifically for the Project.

These tests simulated a fire scenario in Riyadh Metro, 3E2 Qasr Al Hokm Downtown Underground Transfer Station between Line 3 (Orange Line) and Line 1 (Blue Line). The purpose of these tests is to provide an assessment of the fire resistance performance of the glazed system together with its framing members and to make an assessment for the actual application of the system on site, supported by the results of the tested configuration.

Three different specimens installed in the concrete supporting structure were tested at Efectis Era Avrasya:
