Burning behaviour of building products
With our test equipment's we measure the non-combustibility of the product, heat of combustion/calorific values, flame spread properties, heat release and smoke production, ignitability and forming of burning droplets/particles and building products propensity to undergo continuos smouldering.
Fire classification for building products
Fire classification for building products is made according to classification standard EN 13501-1+A1. Classification for roof coverings is made according to EN 13501-5+A1. The test methods for classification and classification criteria are presented in the classification standards.
