Building Component Solutions (BCOMS), a subsidiary of Zamil Industrial Investment Company (Zamil Industrial), has been awarded key certifications that attest the performance of its sandwich panels in terms of fire, wind and foot traffic resistance and water leakage.

The Saudi-based company has earned the FM Approvals Class 4480 and 4881 certificates of compliance from FM Approvals (part of FM Global) for its metal-faced, non-combustible core, interior wall/ceiling and exterior wall assembly building panels, as well as the FM Approvals Class 4471 certification for its insulated roof panels.

FM Approvals is a US-based leading provider of testing and certification to determine product compliance with industry standards for hazardous locations and product performance. Recognised and respected worldwide, the FM Approvals certification process assures consumers that products and services have been objectively tested and proven to conform to the highest engineering standards for property loss prevention, BCOMS pointed out.

FM Standard 4480 evaluates insulated wall or wall and roof/ceiling panels, interior finish materials or coatings, and exterior wall systems for their performance with regard to fire resistance; while FM Standard 4471 evaluates the performance of metal roof panels when exposed to fire and wind, foot traffic resistance, and water leakage.

“We are extremely proud to receive the FM Approvals certifications, which assures customers that our products have been objectively tested and conform to international standards,” said Nasri Majzoub, general manager of BCOMS.

“This recognition is a reflection of the hard work and dedication of our entire team, in addition to the consistent quality control maintained during the entire production process, all with the goal of providing safe, innovative, and reliable products and solutions to our clients,” he added.

In addition to testing BCOMS products, FM Approvals also examined the company’s manufacturing facilities and audited its quality control procedures during its verification process, to ascertain that BCOMS produces a consistently uniform and reliable product.

Formed in 2008, BCOMS is the largest supplier of sandwich panels in Saudi Arabia, with its products exported to all Middle East and North Africa (Mena), GCC and Asian countries. Its factory is located in Dammam Second Industrial City. BCOMS produces more than 1.5 million sq m annually of sprayed polyisocyanurate (PIR) foam and mineral wool sandwich panels in compliance with international standards and norms.
