Different countries across the globe have very different fire retardant regulations. FR-One is your guarantee that the fire retardant fabrics of your choice surpass the most demanding fire retardant standards, anywhere in the world.
Electrical burner test (for 503), complementary rate of flame spread test (for 504) and dripping test (for 505).
For German DIN 4102 (B1), a material is classified as B1 if it fulfils the requirements of a B2-test and the ‘fire shaft’ test.
A flame is applied to a vertically oriented textile fabric to determine the fire behavior.
A flame is applied to a vertically oriented test fabric to determine the burning behavior.
A specimen of the fabric for maritime use to be tested is oriented vertically. A flame is applied to it to determine the burning behavior.
A burner flame is applied to a vertically oriented textile fabric to determine the flame propagation.
The test material is put on a chair simulation and is exposed to a burning cigarette.
The test fabric is exposed to different ignition sources, namely a burning cigarette and butane flame, to examine its burning behavior.
Different ignition sources are applied to a constructed test rig to examine the burning behavior of a test material.
An assembly of upholstery materials for maritime use is subjected to 2 ignition sources: a smoldering cigarette and a flaming source equivalent to a burning match.
The purpose of the test is to provide a comparative measurement of surface flame spread and smoke development of materials with that of a select grade red oak and reinforced cement board under a specific fire exposure conditions.
A very severe vertical flame test which measures the ignition resistance of a 4" x 12" specimen when exposed to 6" propane torch flame for 10 seconds. After flame, flame propagation distance and afterglow (propagating and non-propagating) are measured.
A flame is applied to a test specimen to determine the burning behavior of a fabric used for the interior of motor vehicles.
A vertical flame test which measures the ignition resistance of a 12" x 12" restrain specimen when subjected to 1.5" flame for 12 seconds. Char legnth, after flame and drip burn are measured.
This test is suitable for materials that don't melt or shrink.
Ignitability, flame propagation, heat release and smoke release are determined simultaneously by means of a vertical heat source.
An assembly of upholstered materials is subjected to a match-flame equivalent to examine its burning behavior.
An assembly of upholstered materials is subjected to a burning cigarette to examine its burning behavior.
A flame is applied to a simulated chair to assess the burning behavior of the test fabric.
Specification for resistance to ignition of upholstered furniture for non-domestic seating by testing composites. This standard refers to the test standards British BS 5852 source 0, 1,5 (Cigarette, Match) and (Crib 5), BS European EN 1021 Part 1 and 2-1 or BS European EN 1021 Part 1 and 2-2, depending on the end-use environment involved.
A flame is applied to a vertically oriented test fabric to determine the burning behaviour. The test provides a mean to determine the relative response to flame of fabrics under low intensities of fire exposure.
The burning behavior of fire retarding products and subassemblies in public places is assessed.
A flame is applied to a vertically oriented textile fabric to determine the mean ignition time and the flame spread properties.
The combustion of upholstered furniture is evaluated in presence of or without flame and/or glow. This gives an indication of the reaction to fire of furniture exposed to a small ignition source.
