UL recognises Saudi Fan Industries in Middle East and Africa

Saudi Fan Power Ventilators 02UL, the global safety science leader, has announced Saudi Fan Industries is the first manufacturer in the Middle East and Africa to achieve certification in the category for Power Ventilators for Smoke Control Systems (ZAXH)

It includes UL 793, internationally recognised Standard for Automatically Operated Roof Vents for Smoke and Heat. The tested products also met UL 705 Standard for Safety for Power Ventilators with additional ratings at 300C for F300 mild steel models and 400C for F400 stainless steel models. UL has tested and certified Saudi Fan Industries’ centrifugal single width single inlet smoke fan (HRE) and centrifugal roof mounted up blast smoke extract fan (DV/DVW) for compliance with the applicable requirements of American National Standards Institute (ANSI), Source Classification Codes (SCC), UAE Fire and Life Safety Code of Practice and the Saudi Building Codes.

Products evaluated according to UL 705 and time/temperature ratings meet stringent construction and performance criteria set by authorities and customers. In the case of a fire, they offer life-saving benefits, including increasing evacuation time and decreasing the risk of smoke inhalation for a building’s occupants. Products that comply with UL 705 Standard and time/temperature ratings also help to protect a building, its occupants and contents from poisonous fumes and heat damage.

UL helps companies demonstrate compliance to local fire and life safety codes and, thus, further its mission of a safer, more sustainable and secure world,” said Hamid Syed, vice-president and general manager for UL in the Middle East and Africa. 

UL investigated Saudi Fan Industries HRE and DV/DVW smoke fans with respect to their operation during exposure to elevated temperatures. Following the completion of these tests, which demonstrated the products meet the requirements of UL 705 and time/temperature rating, these products can bear the UL Mark - providing assurance to customers and end-users that they have been tested to globally recognised safety and performance standards.
