REACTION TO FIRE
European fire testing of construction products is based on the Euroclass system (200/147/EY).
Wood products treated with Nordtreat fire 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:
- Fire technical testing of building products – non combustibility: EN ISO 1182
- Fire technical testing of building products – single burning item test (SBI): EN 13823
- Fire technical testing of building products – ignitability test: EN ISO 11925-2
