We have a wide selection of media that is fire rated and have put this information together to help anyone involved with these regulations to understand the ratings as well as how our selection of materials fit in to those classifications.
It's important to note that there is more than one fire protection standard commonplace in our industry. This can cause confusion when selecting the right product and understanding the classification is important if you are applying material in public places, such as retail stores and transit hubs where fire certified materials are often specified.
It is also important to note that the rating only applies when the self-adhesive film is applied to a substrate that has the same or greater density than plasterboard, which is 800kg/m3 as this will affect it's fire performance.
This is a UK building regulation standard that is often referenced to when fitting to public buildings. This standard examines the first 10 minutes of the fire and reports on the spread of flames according to Part 7 and fire propagatrion according to Part 6.
This is the original German standard which was widely used over Europe. This standard tested for fire behaviour in terms of combustability / flammibility and classified the results in to the following five catergories:
In much the same way that Germany has their own classification of testing, so did France. Their testing was building materials based and results fell in to one of these four catergories:
The ASTM E84 test is a standard of the American Society of Testing and Materials that measures the burning properties, or fire resistance of building materials that may be exposed to flames. The results can be classified according to three catergories, with Class A or I being the most fire resistant:
This standard was introduced in an attempt to harminise all European tests. Materials tested using the EN13501-1 standard have all been tested and classified for fire behaviour in terms of combustability, as well as spread of fire by burning droplets and smoke generation. Each of these three classifications have their own scale giving a much more in-depth analysis to the fire behaviour of the material.
This provides guidance to the specifier / user regarding the fire behaviour in terms of combustability.
There are seven classes of Reaction to Fire:
|Euroclass harmonised EN13501-1||UK BS476||Germany DIN 4102||France NF P92-501|
|A2||Limited combustibility||A2||M0 or M1|
The other two parts that comprise the harmonised EN13501-1 standard are:
This provides guidance to the specifier / user regarding the generation of smoke in terms of volume produced.
There are three classes of Smoke Generation:
This provides guidance to the specifier / user regarding the spread of fire by burning droplets.
There are three classes of burning droplets:
