UR Fog: the first manufacturer of Fogging Systems who has obtained the Certification of Compliance to EN 50131-8:2019.
The European regulation EN 50131-8 issued by CENELEC is the reference to the international quality standard related to fogging anti-intrusion systems; the latest and updated version, the most restrictive and complete, is the 2019 revision.
The EN 50131-8:2019 certification is the only one recognized in the international market able to guarantee the compliance of a fogging system with the reference technical standard.
The strict tests to which fogging systems are subjected concern not only electrical and mechanical components but also knowingly delicate elements such as electronic components.
The tests are carried out simulating real situations, subjecting the devices to the conditions in which they will operate in case of intrusion, such as the absence of power from the electrical supply and tampering. The quality and quantity of fluid used by the fogging system are also verified, certifying its absolute non-toxicity and the absence of residues once it has turned into fog.
The introduction of innovative technical solutions, protected by numerous international patents, has allowed UR Fog fogging systems to comply with the strict and scrupulous checks provided for in the latest version of the legislation.
The EN 50131-8:2019 certification is a quality recognition carried out by independent third parties, charged with the meticulous verification of the characteristics of the fogging system without leaving doubts about the parameters that are often misunderstood and that unfortunately leave room for subjective interpretations. Speaking of fog, in fact, without conforming to an international reference standard, it is difficult to objectively establish parameters such as density and persistence, making it too often understood that the end user notices too late the ineffectiveness of the device to which he entrusted the safety of his goods.
For the evaluation of its fogging systems UR Fog has relied on the accredited body APPLICA Tests & Certification AS, Norway, which has also certified the real saturation capacity, the density of fog over time, concentration, opacity and persistence. That is why the data provided in the manuals and data sheets of UR Fog are not indicative and theoretical but real and above all certified.
