UL 162 - Offshore platforms
UL 162 is an Internationally recognised test method carried out by the UL (Underwriters Laboratory), an independent not-for-profit organisation.
- UL 162 requires a 50 sq ft heptane fire with a pre-burn of 60 seconds to be extinguished at an application Rate of 1.63L/m² using a freeze protected foam with potable (fresh) and sea water.
- This is a pass or fail test.
- UL listed products are monitored with samples being sent to UL every 3 months for conformance testing. This guarantees the foam being supplied is the same formulation as was originally tested - no other test standard requires this monitoring.
- For further information, visit the UL website.
