EN 45545-2 European fire safety standards have been critical in ensuring fire safe continuity throughout the EU and UK.

There were challenges and concerns regarding various rail companies in differing countries adopting different manufacturing processes and to random specifications which resulted in an inconsistency in train safety and resistance to fire.

Understandably, low smoke density and low toxicity to the components of a train vehicles construction is incredibly important in slowing down the spread of both fire flames and spread of smoke.

Aware of its importance to the safety and protection of both passengers and operators, Flotec has ensured that it is not only fire safe but EN 45545-2 compliant.

Certified to ISO 9001 : 2015 standards, RISQS verified and successfully audited to GMRT 2450 safety critical requirements, Flotec ensures that best quality products and services are provided, competitively priced, and delivered with the highest customer service levels.
