British Board of Agrément (BBA)

BBA approvals provide independent assurance for the designer, specifier and end-user as to the “fitness-for-purpose” of building products. To achieve this accreditation, Lorient acoustic, smoke and fire seals were subjected to a comprehensive appraisal, conducted over a two-year period. Rigorous audits of the manufacturer’s procedures are regularly conducted and it is a condition of BBA approval that a complete re-appraisal of the relevant products is carried out at, maximum, 3-year intervals. Lorient seals have successfully completed this review process on each occasion since the original approval was awarded. Lorient remains the only manufacturer of combined acoustic, smoke and fire seals to hold BBA approval on its mainstream range of seals.
