The technical committee of the ZIV (Bundesverband des Schornsteinhandwerks – Zentralinnungsverband) visited our laboratory for fireplaces and exhaust systems in Drolshagen.
After the arrival of the participants, there was a detailed discussion on the current status of the standards for fireplaces for example the new head standard DIN EN 16510-1 Residential solid fuel burning appliances – Part 1: General requirements and test methods as a replacement for e.g. DIN EN 13240 roomheaters for solid fuels and DIN EN 14785 roomheaters for burning of wood pellets. In the discussion, the points of intersection and differences between measurements on the test bench according to the product standards and operations in practice were also addressed.
When inspecting the test benches, our CEOs Dennis and Christian Droll explained the standard-compliant procedure of tests and the requirements from the relevant test standards.
We thank the ZIV for the informative exchange and visit and look forwards to deepening the cooperation.
