AITEX evaluates the Fire Reaction rating of all kinds of textile and construction materials, in accordance with the European Standard UNE EN 13501-1:2007.
This European Standard establishes 7 ratings: A1, A2, B, C, D, E and F; which define the contribution of a material to a fire, with A1 being the best possible rating. These ratings are complemented with two additional parameters:
- Smoke opaqueness: s1 (low), s2 and s3 (high).
- Dripping or falling of alight particles: d0 (none), d1 and d2 (dangerous)
A material is classified depending on its final application.
