FireShield AAY/LAY - successful full-scale fire-test

Nordisk has successfully completed a full-scale fire-test of the FireShield AAY/LAY main container, conducted by a highly accredited European test center, in accordance with paragraph 6.3 of ISO 19281:2016, “Air Cargo – Fire resistant containers – Design, performance and testing requirements”.

Containing a Class A fire for 6 hours

The latest addition to the FireShield family, FireShield AAY/LAY was packed with 78 corrugated cardboard boxes that contained shredded paper. One box was set on fire to simulate a Class A fire, and the fire-resistant container must contain the fire for a minimum of six hours.

782°C inside, 34°C outside

The FireShield AAY/LAY container performed according to plan. Inside the container, a temperature of 782°C was reached in the first 5 minutes after ignition. During the testing period, the maximum surface temperature at a distance of 100mm was 34°C. In addition, no flame penetration (burn-through) occurred over the 6 hour period.
