New General Building Approval for the INTEGRA-pw / Product Structure 2.5 + 3.0
Due to recent investments in a new welding machine, we considerably improved the production quality of the spot welds. In order to achieve the required strength of the spot welds, additional hand-applied spot welds in the area of the fixings are no longer necessary.
This gives the user the possibility to adjust the length of the mats on the construction site if necessary - without losing their function as a car safety barrier.
The fall protection has been adapted to the impact protection requirements in the revised National Annex of 09/2019 to DIN EN 1991-1-7 for parking structures for use by cars with a permissible total load of up to 30 kN.
Reducing the tightening torque for bolting the fixings from 50 Nm to 30 Nm ultimately reduces the installation effort on site and the forces acting on the vehicle occupants in the event of an impact against the mat.
The mat slides more (even with lower impact forces) and the impact is not as hard for the occupants.
Due to these changes, we had to apply for a new general building authority approval for the INTEGRA-pw fall protection system. This was granted on 28.06.2021 with the number Z-14.7-882.
Our previous standard safety barrier mats now bear the designations:
- INTEGRA-pw 2.5 for the European countries (excluding Germany) and
- INTEGRA-pw 3.0 for Germany.
On 14.02.2023 the extension of the general building authority approval Z-14.7-882 for the steel grid mats with 8 fixings per mat took place. The following will be changed/updated:
The previous safety barrier INTEGRA-pw RD with 8 fixings will become INTEGRA-pw 3.5.
