Ziehl-Abegg is first to Eurovent certify

BELGIUM: German manufacturer Ziehl-Abegg is the first manufacturer to gain acceptance under Eurovent Certification’s new and improved certified performance programme for fans.

Developed in collaboration with the Air Movement and Control Association (AMCA), the revamped programme aims to tear down the administrative and cost barriers that fan manufacturers face when certifying products.

The scheme is said to combine the best of AMCA’s certification protocols and Eurovent Certification’s audit process into a single certification programme. Products are first evaluated under the AMCA certification protocols, according to their most-current testing and rating standards. This includes aspects such as air flow rates and available pressure, with options for certifying acoustic characteristics and energy efficiency. 

Once products have achieved AMCA certification, they can apply for the Eurovent Certified Performance mark for fans by undergoing an initial admission audit. This audit verifies the consistency between what is declared by manufacturers, upheld by AMCA certification, and what is produced and sold by the manufacturer. Products then move onto a surveillance process with annual audits from Eurovent Certification.

German manufacturer Ziehl-Abegg was first past the post to gain the new certification. Simon Engert, in charge of public affairs at Ziehl-Abegg, said “The new programme means we’ve been able to fast-track our certification process like never before. Our fans for AHUs are now proudly bearing both AMCA and Eurovent certifications in record time.”

Eurovent Certification insists that the revamped certification scheme ensures HVAC professionals and decision makers can be confident that certified products will deliver the performance promised by the manufacturer. “Fan certification is available globally, in a joined-up programme designed to keep certification standards high, while reducing manufacturer costs and administrative burden,” it says
