STRATO® CERTIFIED MIAMI-DADE COUNTY

THE FIRST AND ONLY EVA INTERLAYER CERTIFIED BY MIAMI-DADE COUNTY

Satinal is proud to announce that STRATO® interlayer is now the first EVA film approved for use in Dade County Florida and meets its toughest standards: STRATO® has passed the weathering and flammability requirements that have been set and mandated by Dade County Florida to allow the sale of the product in the windborne debris zone.

STRATO® is the first and only EVA film which received the Notice of Acceptance (NOA) approval. Before buying a product, glaziers and system designers should check that the interlayer has been truly certified. In this specific case, it is possible to search the Miami Dade’s database for products, certificates and listings that have been approved complying with the Florida Building Code, including the High Velocity Hurricane Zone.

The sample of laminated glass (33.1) with STRATO® EVA interlayer successfully passed the following tests:

  • ASTM G155-13 | Xenon weathering
  • ASTM D638-14 | Tensile strength
  • ASTM D1929-10 | Self ignition temperature
  • ASTM D2843-10 | Average Smoke density
  • ASTM D635-10 | Average liner burning rate – Average extent of burning – Average smoke density

Damage to glazing systems can be prevented, or at least minimized, by using glazing that have been designed to resist wind and windborne debris forces specified in the building code. Impact-resistant systems provide protection through the use of laminated glass with STRATO® EVA interlayer. As a result, architects now have the option of using an advanced high-quality glazing system in hurricane applications or other areas (interior or exterior).

Satinal continues to invest in quality in order to offer the market a product that can be safely used in a variety of applications and in compliance with the different building codes: STRATO® is now certified according to European (UNI EN ISO), American (SGCC – ANSI) and Miami Dade (ASTM) standards.

STRATO® EVA INTERLAYERS MEET EN 16613:2019 STANDARD

In December 2019, standards EN 16612 and EN 16613 were designed and published and they are closely related to each other: in fact, the first one determines the resistance of glass panes to lateral loads by calculation, while the second one specifies the mechanical properties of the interlayer used to make laminated safety glass.

These standards have been under construction for years and their issue finally formalizes the importance of the choice of the interlayer for the design of architectural elements. Therefore, they will replace or complete the individual regulations in the different European Union countries.

Selecting the type of film to be used is a very important decision: it determines the behaviour of laminated glass, whose properties depend on the temperature and the loads to which it is subjected.

Many samples (quantities and measurements as per Appendix B of EN 16613) have been tested in an independent certified laboratory in accordance with the configuration provided by ISO EN1288-3:2016 (4-point bending test), in order to define the characteristics of STRATO® EVA film.

Tests were carried out with the aim of calculating the values of the Young Modulus and the Shear Modulus which express the behaviour of the laminated glass under different types of loads and which determine the stiffness family (type 0.1.2) of the interlayer per load condition.

Following there are some conditions listed in EN 16613: wind gust load, wind storm load, balustrade loads, climatic loads on insulating glass units etc.

STRATO® CERTIFIED QUALITY

Product certification, by definition, denotes the process through which a product is subjected to in order to verify that it has passed quality and performance tests.

STRATO® is already certified according to the following standards:

  • European (UNI EN ISO)
  • American SGCC (ANSI)

Moreover STRATO® has carried out the following tests in accordance with the standards of Miami Dade County and State of Florida:

  • Xenon Arc Light Weathering Test | ASTM G155 – 4500 hours
  • Tensile Properties of Plastics | ASTM D638
  • Density of Smoke | ASTM E2843
  • Rate and extent of burning | ASTM D635
  • Self-ignition temperature of Plastics | ASTM D1929
  • Weathering test 3000 hours (interior-exterior use) | ANSI Z97.1-2015 Section 5.4.3

STRATO® IS CERTIFIED SGCC

STRATO® is certified and registered with the Safety Glazing Certification Council (SGCC) for laminated glass and has qualified according to the American standard ANSI Z97.1-2015; CPSC 16 CFR 1201 and Canadian CAN/CGSB 12.1-2017.

The Safety Glazing Certification Council (SGCC) is the largest U.S. institute that monitors and tests laminated glass to determine that safety glass, if broken, reduces the risk of injury to persons.
SGCC certification is in everyone’s interest. In the construction market, engineers can be sure to choose SGCC-certified products for architectural glazing. Manufacturers appreciate the fact that the SGCC-certified glass they handle and install has met industry and safety standards.
