Fire resistance classification
The EN 13501-1 standard is used to assess and classify building materials according to their fire behaviour.It sets the requirements for the materials on the surface of building components, e.g. ceiling claddings, i.e. their behaviour when in direct contact with radiant heat or flames.
The classification into combustible and non-combustible building materials doesn‘t describe the intrinsic behaviour of the material. The behaviour under fire load depends on the surface type and form, the presence of bonding agents, the processing technique used, etc. The certifications are therefore only valid for the building material or composite building material actually tested. Other compositions can exhibit a less favourable fire behaviour.
The A2-s1,d0 class corresponds to the national building-regulation term: “non-combustible”. AMF THERMATEX panels are classified as A2-s1,d0 in accordance with EN 13501-1 and are therefore “non-combustible”.
The material class is mostly printed on the rear of the panel as well as on the packaging labels.
Test certificates are available on request.
