Fire testing of building materials

Fire classification of building materials

The European EN 13501-1 standard is used to classify construction materials and building elements into five performance classes on the basis of their fire resistance. The standard outlines the required tests for three product categories: flooring, linear pipes, and other construction products.

Some of our most popular tests required for EN 13501-1 fire classification include the reaction to fire test for flooring by EN ISO 9239-1, the single burning item test by EN 13823, and the gross heat of combustion test by EN ISO 1716. You can find more information on each by clicking the icons below.

Fire testing of furniture and textiles

Testing of textiles and upholstered furniture

Furniture and textiles used in public spaces, such as hotels, schools, restaurants, and public transportation, must meet stringent fire-resistance requirements. Depending on the type of textile and the environment where it is used, standardized tests can include ISO 12952 for assessing the ignitability of bedding items, EN 1021 for testing the ignitability of upholstered furniture, and EN 1102 for evaluating the burning behavior of curtains and drapes.
