STAND NUMBER: F433
FM Approvals is an accredited, third-party testing and certification organization and is also a Notified Body and Technical Assessment Body (EOTA) designated under the Construction Products Regulation.
FM Approval Standard ANSI/FM2510 is the only standard that uses full-scale simulated riverine flood tests to evaluate the performance of the flood mitigation product in realistic flood conditions as well as testing the components and materials that comprise the product. For manufacturers of flood mitigation products and systems, the FM Approvals certification mark signifies to the marketplace that the FM Approved product will meet or exceed expectations in critical flood control situations.
Performance testing of perimeter barriers include hydrostatic loading and incidental wave; wave-induced hydrodynamic loading; overtopping; debris impact; and flowing water current test. Performance tests for opening barriers, backwater valves, and flood mitigation pumps also include simulated real-world conditions.
