REACTION TO FIRE


European fire testing of construction products is based on the Euroclass system (200/147/EY).

Wood products treated with Nordtreat flame retardants typically achieve a reaction to fire classification B-s1,d0 according to EN 13501-1:2007+A1:2009.

The classification is based on performance in three standardized tests:

  1. Fire technical testing of building products – non-combustibility: EN ISO 1182
  2. Fire technical testing of building products – single burning item test (SBI): EN 13823
  3. Fire technical testing of building products – ignitability test: EN ISO 11925-2

DURABILITY OF FIRE PROTECTION

 
Flame retardants improve the reaction-to-fire properties of wood products. However, the reaction-to-fire performance may be reduced by exposure to humid conditions and weather, and the ability of the treated products to continue to perform even when exposed to these conditions needs to be demonstrated.

Nordtreat flame retardant treated wood products typically achieve DRF classifications INT, INT2 and EXT according to EN16755:2017. The classifications are based on the flame retardant treatments durability in tests such as: EN 13823, ISO 5660-1, NT 053 and EN927-6. Nordtreat flame retardants protect wood also from impacts of weather and sunlight and enhance wood material’s natural resistance against moulds and fungi.
