The purpose of D14-A APSAD standard is to support users (business managers, builders, etc.) and specifiers (design and engineering offices, insurance companies, etc.) in their fire prevention approaches. It defines the fire behaviour of sandwich panels, which are often used in food warehouses or workshops, laboratories and buildings at cold ambient temperatures. The choice of quality panels associated with compliance with construction requirements can limit fire ignition and delay the progress of combustion.
The document sets out recommendations for the design, fire behaviour and implementation of these panels, including the assembly, mounting and installation of associated electrical systems, lighting, etc.
