In total 3 samples of 8 different configurations of ducting were tested each subjected to 12-second Vertical Bunsen Burner Tests at a UKAS accredited test facility and each passed with ease.

“Passing flammability testing adds an official stamp to the confidence we have always had in our flexible ducting products,” said Paul Heaton, Managing Director of AVS-SYS. “Aircraft Manufactures, Tier 1 Companies and MRO’s can now fit our ducts with added assurance.”

The ducting is specifically designed and manufactured to suit the demanding on-board environments found in aircraft of all types, whilst minimising weight to provide long term operational savings.
