In order to fully enable offshore containers to fulfill various functions such as transporting perishable goods, providing living quarters, and accommodating workspaces, it becomes essential to undertake modifications that adhere to the container's thermal insulation and fire protection prerequisites. Typically, the containers offered by TLS are designed to meet the A60 standard, ensuring compliance with stringent safety regulations.
Key Specifications for A60 Classification Society Standard:
Characteristics of A60 Fireproof Materials: The chosen fireproof material should exhibit both rigidity and the ability to withstand fire for a minimum of 1 hour, all while preserving its structural integrity to thwart the passage of smoke and flames.
Rock wool and ceramic fiber wool stand out as two distinct alternatives for insulation materials in A60 fire protection applications. However, it is imperative that both materials receive official endorsement from the pertinent classification society to ensure adherence to safety standards and regulations.
