Thermal insulating products

Thermal insulating products on the basis of natural raw materials, such as wood, are becoming of increasing importance now that so much consideration is given to ecological aspects. Services for the testing, monitoring and certification of such thermal insulating products, particularly on the basis of wood fibres, are therefore an important part of the work of HFB ENGINEERING GMBH as a private, independent and officially approved testing institute.

On the basis of our accreditations as a notified testing, monitoring and certification laboratory (notified body no. 1034) for tasks in connection with CE marking and official recognition by Deutsches Institut für Bautechnik Berlin (DIBt) as a testing, monitoring and certification laboratory (code SAC 05) in accordance with regional building regulations, HFB provides the following services for manufacturers of thermal insulating products:


  • Initial type testing in connection with the system of attestation of conformity with CE marking (attestation of conformity system "3")
  • - for factory made wood wool products (WW) in accordance with EN 13168
  • - for factory made wood fibre products (WF) in accordance with EN 13171

    HFB can also act as a testing, surveillance and certification body in the case of attestation of conformity system "1".

  • External monitoring and certification of thermal insulating products for conformity marking in accordance with regional building regulations (Ü-Kennzeichnung) for thermal insulating products in accordance with Z-23.15- , such as wood fibre insulating products in accordance with EN 13171 with special properties
  • External monitoring and certification of thermal insulating products for conformity marking in accordance with regional building regulations (Ü-Kennzeichnung) for thermal insulating products in accordance with Z-23.11- .... (non-regulated thermal insulating products/regulated application)
  • Tests for the attestation of product properties, e. g.
  • - DIN EN 12667: Thermal performance of building materials and
      products - Determination of thermal resistance by means of guarded
      hot plate and heat meter methods - Products of high and medium thermal resistance
  • - DIN EN 1607: Thermal insulating products for building applications -
      Determination of tensile strength perpendicular to faces
  • - DIN EN 826: Thermal insulating products for building applications -
      Determination of compression behaviour
  • - DIN EN 1609: Thermal insulating products for building applications -
      Determination of short term water absorption by
      partial immersion
