HALFEN HIT Insulated connection and HALFEN Cast-in channels receive an Environmental Product Declaration (EPD)

An EPD® (Environmental Product Declaration) provides transparent and comparable ecological data which helps to evaluate the sustainability of a building. Already during the planning phase the data provided here is of great significance for architects and planners. The data provided also helps to ensure the high demands on the environmental performance of the building are met.

EPDs form the data basis for an environmental building assessment in accordance with DIN EN 15978. The declarations are internationally coordinated; they are based on international standards (ISO 14025; ISO 14040ff) – as well as on European DIN EN 15804.

The EPD for the HALFEN HIT-HP MVX-0805-20-100 balcony connection and HALFEN Cast-in channels HTA-CE and HZA was presented by the Institut für Bauen und Umwelt e.V. (IBU) during the BAU 2017 Trade fair.

HALFEN PSA Anchor point for use with personal fall protection equipment

We would like to present the HALFEN PSA Anchor point for use with personal fall protection equipment.

The anchor point for use with personal fall protective equipment (PSA) consists of an approved DEMU T-FIXX, stainless steel sleeve anchor, an identification cap, and a connecting hook. The suitability of the approved sleeve bolt for fall protection was conducted in a DGUV test based on EN 795 for 1 person and in accordance with CEN/TS 16415 for 2 people.

The suitability of the load-anchor for personal fall protective equipment was tested in dynamic case studies. The tests were carried out in accordance with DIN 795:2012, whereby a fall of a total of three people was simulated.

Connecting hooks are third party and not included in the HALFEN Product range; these must be sourced separately. A good example for a suitable connecting hook is the RUD PSA INOX STAR M16.

Item number: 0020.270-00508 T-FIXX M16x100 A4
