CE Marking for Aerofoam Insulation Products

It’s all about resiliency when it comes to fitness. After a strenuous workout, our goal is to bounce back, absorb the impact of the workout, push ourselves to do one more repetition, lift one more kg, or run one more kilometer. AeroSound provides rubber gym flooring and sports flooring to make that workout much more effective. AeroSound® HIIT (Rubber Flooring Rolls) is constructed of high-quality rubber flooring and EPDM rubber sheet color granules designed for indoor and outdoor applications that are subjected to extreme wear and tear. Its shock absorption, non-skid properties, wear resistance, impact sound properties and robustness make it an excellent flooring choice for any application.
Background of the CE mark

The CE mark concept was introduced in May 1985 by the European Union to standardize the technical legal specifications of the European countries. The Construction Products Directive (89/106/EEC) was subsequently founded in order to set the legal basis for the introduction of the CE mark. The six essential requirements of the directive above are:
  • Mechanical resistance and stability
  • Safety in case of fire
  • Hygiene, health and the environment
  • Safety in use
  • Protection against noise
  • Energy economy and heat retention
These essential requirements have been translated into characteristics for construction products in harmonized technical specifications. The tested characteristics for the foam plastic insulations are the following:
  • Fire behavior
  • Dimensions and tolerances
  • Thermal conductivity
  • Dimensional stability
  • Durability characteristics

Hira Ind. LLC – first insulation manufacturer from the Middle East to get the CE mark
Hira Industries LLC recently got the CE mark for its insulation range called AEROFOAM®. The company invested heavily in 2011 in a new factory for closed cell foam insulation and began its exports to Europe in 2012. Starting 2013 it became forbidden to sell non CE marked insulation materials to any country from the EU. In order to develop the Aerofoam® brand further on the European continent, Hira Ind. LLC obtained the CE mark for Aerofoam® in April 2013, assuring this way a smooth transition to the new legal environment and keeping its long term commitment to the European distributors. Hira Ind. LLC has further investment plans in certificates required by the European countries, assuring this way a healthy development path in a market with a big potential.
