What Is EN13501-1?

EN 13501-1: Fire classification of construction products and building elements-Part1: Classification using data from reaction to fire tests


With the lucubrate and development in fire science and fire protection, right from the combustion characteristics of flame spread, extend to include the rate of heat release, heat release, the toxicity of smoke density and combustion result and other parameters. The classes are EN 13501-1 actively consider the above parameters, therefore more scientific. EN 13501-1 also provides a number of test methods not only consider the actual fire scene but also consider the end use of the material, which is more practical representation.


EN 13501-1: Fire Test to Building Material-Product

1) Construction products, excluding floorings and linear pipe thermal insulation products

2)  Floorings

3) Linear pipe thermal insulation products
