Load-Bearing Capacity

Load-Bearing Capacity

The breaking load test in accordance with EN 14190 ensures that the products can bear 5 times their own weight. This means e.g. a non-perforated Belgravia tile is tested with a load of up to 17 kg without any damage to the tile. The purpose of the test is to secure the stability of the ceiling.

However, the maximum weight of fittings that can be incorporated in a tile in practice is specified for each product and determined as 2½ times own weight, based on the maximum deflection in accordance with EN 13964. The load capacity tests the products’ visual deflection and is expressed as a combination of the deflection classes, the humidity classes, the net weight and the built-in weight. These can be found under each product or in the knowledge center on the right.
