Silver Fox: Yellow Fox-Flo® gains EN 45545-2 Certification
Friday, May 05, 2017
As standards evolve and change in the market, Silver Fox evolves with them. Accordingly, we are delighted to announce that Silver Fox has achieved the necessary levels to pass standard EN 45545 for the yellow Fox-Flo® labels

EN 45545-2 sets product standards for fire, toxicity and smoke emissions to ensure the necessary consistent safety standards are set across Europe’s railways.

The system has been prepared by Technical Committee CEN/TC 256 "Railway applications" on behalf of the European Commission and is based on the requirements of the EU Directive 2008/57/EC.

EN 45545-2 classifies all material on board in different groups, which have to fulfil specific “Requirement Sets” which often include several test methods.

To find out more about Fox-Flo® tie-on cable labels and the whole array of successful tests that have been achieved from EN 45545-2 to accelerated UV, salt mist spray to extreme temperatures. See product datasheet for more information. Please visit us at RAILTEX on stand K81 from the 9-11th May, at the NEC Birmingham.
