    DIN EN 13501-1 : 2019 – Fire classification of construction products and building elements

    DIN EN 13501-1 : 2019 – Fire classification of construction products and building elements

    The European Union has updated its fire classification guidelines, DIN EN 13501-1:2019. This document covers the classification of construction products and building elements based on their reaction to fire tests. In this article, we’ll be looking at how data from reaction to fire tests can be used to classify building elements.

    What is DIN EN 13501-1 : 2019 – Fire classification of construction products and building elements -?

    This blog post provides an overview of the latest DIN EN 13501-1 : 2019 Fire classification of construction products and building elements, which is a revision of the previous DIN EN 13501: 2008. This document provides guidance on how to classify products and construction elements using data from fire tests.

    The main changes in this edition are the introduction of a new classification system (Classification using data from reaction to fire tests) and updated test methods. In addition, there are several other updates, including corrections and clarifications.

    The classification system is based on the results of three types of tests: thermal runaway, autoclave corrosion, and fire endurance. Test results are divided into five groups, with each group corresponding to a certain level of risk. The five levels are Low (Group 1), Medium (Group 2), High (Group 3), Very high (Group 4), and Extreme (Group 5).

    The document also includes guidance on how to use test results in practice, as well as examples of various products and construction elements.

    What are the requirements of DIN EN 13501-1 : 2019 – Fire classification of construction products and building elements –

    DIN EN 13501-1 : 2019 – Fire classification of construction products and building elements – is the latest standard for fire classification of construction products and building elements. The standard covers a wide range of different product types and includes tests for reacting to fire.

    To meet the requirements of the standard, manufacturers must ensure that their products are classified using data from reaction to fire tests. This article describes how data from reaction to fire tests can be used to classify products.

    The classification system used in DIN EN 13501-1 is based on the principle of fire hazard identification. Products are divided into categories according to their potential for causing harm in a fire. Each category has a specific level of hazard, which determines the required safety measures that must be taken when using the product.

    The following table provides an overview of the different categories and their associated hazard levels:

    Category Hazard level CE 0 No hazard C+ 1 Low hazard C 2 Medium hazard C 3 High hazard

    Products in category CE (no hazard) do not present any risk during a fire. Products in category C+ (low hazard) may pose a risk if they accumulate too much heat or if they are exposed to intense heat or flames 

    What are the benefits of DIN EN 13501-1 : 2019 – Fire classification of construction products and building elements –

    DIN EN 13501-1 : 2019 – Fire classification of construction products and building elements – is the most recent edition of the internationally recognized standard for fire classification of construction products and building elements. The standard provides a system for classifying construction products and elements so that they can be identified and treated in accordance with their fire hazard.

    Who needs DIN EN 13501-1 : 2019 – Fire classification of construction products and building elements –

    In this blog post, we will be discussing the need for DIN EN 13501-1: 2019 – Fire classification of construction products and building elements, and how it can benefit your business.

    Building products have a vital role in construction and must be properly classified in order to ensure their safe use during construction. The latest edition of DIN EN 13501-1: 2019 provides more detailed information on fire testing requirements for a range of construction products.

    The purpose of DIN EN 13501-1 is to provide guidance for the classification of construction products by using data from fire tests. This will help to avoid potential safety hazards and ensure that the products used in construction are safe and compliant with applicable regulations.
