CE mark


PAROC sandwich panels are CE marked and the type approvals for each country fall into disuse. CE marking is valid in the EU area.

CE marking will facilitate customers and designers efforts to choose and compare products. Each company manufacturing CE marked panels has to declare the most important technical properties of their products in accordance with the European product standard EN 14509.

The declared values are based on similar tests and are, in this way, comparable with each other. Each manufacturer is responsible for the authenticity of the informed values, and only the material fire technical classification "reaction to fire" requires third-party control.

Along with CE marking, some technical properties of PAROC panels have changed. As a result, it is of importance always to use the latest version of the Technical Guide for PAROC panel solutions. 

FM Approvals


Paroc panels are the first light-weight sandwich panels in the world meeting the FM 4881 standard requirements for use externally in single span structures with the span up to 6.1 metres without any secondary steel supports. 


FM Global Research Approval Standard 4881 was developed as a consequence of losses suffered post hurricane Andrew 1992 and it can be applied to all areas of the world, whether a hurricane zone or not. 

The actual test consists of two separate test phases simulating natural hazards for external walls: 
- Static and cyclic pressure tests
- Simulated hail resistance test

The approval is valid only up to the used span lengths which are selected by the test order. Paroc panels were tested in Factory Mutual's new extended rig which enabled us to select a span of 6.1 metres for single span structures. Paroc panels are also FM 4880 approved for use internally which is the base requirement for FM 4881 approval. 

We have got the FM 4881 approval for external walls as follows:
- thickness 175-240 mm, panel type AST E: for a single span of max 6,1 m or multi-span 3,05 m
- thickness 120-150 mm, panel type AST E: for a single span of max 3,05 m or multi-span 3,05 m. 
- "severe hail" (FH) rating
