March 22, 2021

Quebec, Canada – March 22, 2021 –  Mecart is pleased to announce the achievement of FM Approval for their cleanroom wall and ceiling panels. The products passed the tests with flying colors, receiving both FM-4880 and FM-4882 certification. This places Mecart in an elite group of cleanroom suppliers and makes Mecart the first North American panel manufacturer to gain FM-4882 certification for panels with non-combustible core for cleanroom occupancy.


Mecart is consistently creating more value for their customers. FM Approved cleanroom panels provide more safety to cleanroom facilities, and also bring lower insurance costs to the client. This achievement is just the latest for the company, which is committed to continuous product improvement. Charles Lipeles, VP of US Operations, explained “We are excited as we continue to grow our business in the US and establish ourselves as a top-tier turnkey cleanroom manufacturer.” With the FM certification in place, Mecart will be in a position to take on a new range of projects.

Mecart is wholly self-manufacturing, with panels that have always been resistant to fire. Mecart’s VP of Engineering, Pascal Fillion, said he was confident that the panels would pass due to the high-quality, non-combustible materials used, but even he (as well as the FM officials) was impressed by the panel performance in the tests.


The 4880 FM Approvals Room Test is for evaluating the fire performance of insulated building panel assemblies and interior finish material. The Approval Standard FM 4882 stands for Interior Wall and Ceiling Materials or Systems for Smoke Sensitive Occupancies. It applies to interior wall and ceiling materials used in cleanrooms and pharmaceutical manufacturing which are susceptible to smoke damage.
