Fire reaction LAB

In the fire reaction Laboratory personnel carries out study and research activities aimed at featuring the behaviour of products, innovative systems as well as traditional ones used and usable in the building sector in event of fire, in terms of fire reaction.

The laboratory supports the building sector both in the obligatory assessment of fire reaction performances and in the development of products and systems with limited contribution to fire

the laboratory is equipped with:

  • Complex test instruments for the European classification of fire resistance in accordance with the following standards: EN1182 (incombustibility), EN 1716 ( calorimetry bomb to assess the calorific value), EN 11925 (ignitability, match type fire), EN 92391 (test for floors with radiant panels) and EN 13823 (SBI test – single burning item)
  • Test instruments for the Italian classification of fire reaction
