British Standard Fire Rated Class 0 & Class 1 --- for Retail Shop/ Kiosk

Mar 30, 2019 | From: Haimi.Z | Gategory: Retail Wiki | View:4

These two classifications you may have seen or been required. One is part of a classification system which can be found in Fire Safety, Approved Document B. This document contains many other regulations, so be sure that you meet all regulations, not just your walls and ceilings. The other is a test classification found in BS476, part 7. Many UK malls require all materials to meet British fire rated class 0 standard.


Explaining Class 1


To achieve Class 1, you must use the materials that are designed to prevent the spread of flames on the surface. Class 1 is actually a test, which looks at the distance and time it takes for flames to spread across a surface. Therefore, you could achieve a Class 4 finish, which would be the lowest and least desirable classification. To achieve Class 1, you need a protective material which allows the least spread of fire in the shortest amount of time.


Explaining Class 0


Class 0 can be found in Approved Document B. This classification means you must first achieve a Class 1 finish on the surface, as well as the appropriate results on a fire propagation test. A fire propagation test is used to test the level of heat given off a surface during a fire. This is to make sure the amount of heat given off during a fire is substantially reduced by the material.

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

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, toxicity of smoke density and combustion result and other parameters. The classes is 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.
