DRS 540: 2023, Reaction to fire tests for building products — Building products excluding floorings exposed to the thermal attack by a single burning item; (133 page(s), in English)
This Draft Rwanda standard specifies a method of test for determining the reaction to fire performance of construction products excluding floorings when exposed to thermal attack by a single burning item (SBI). The
calculation procedures are given in Annex A. Information on the precision of the test method is given in Annex B. The calibration procedures are given in Annexes C and D, of which Annex C is a normative annex. NOTE This document has been developed to determine the reaction to fire performance of essentially flat products. The treatment of some families of products, e.g. linear products (pipes, ducts, cables etc.), can need special rules.
