for fire protection closures according to “General building authority approval/general construction type approval”.

Fire protection is, among other things, an essential basic requirement for buildings and must be fulfilled during normal maintenance over an economically reasonable period of time.

The manufacture of fire protection closures, among other things, places special requirements on manufacturers to comply with § 3 of the Model Building Code:

“Installations shall be arranged, erected, altered and maintained in such a way that

public safety and order, in particular life, health and the natural resources are not endangered”.

In order to guarantee this requirement, the involvement of independent testing, monitoring and certification bodies is prescribed in certain cases.

PfBcert offers applicants and manufacturers monitoring and certification of fire protection closures in accordance with the “General Building Authority Approval / General Construction Type Approval” number: Z-6.20-xxxx of the DIBt.

Successful monitoring and certification thus enables the manufacturer to mark his product with the necessary Ü mark (monitoring mark).
