The consideration for fire and safety in the construction of any buildings is a key design factor. In the event of a fire, the risk of human lives is greater in high rise building such as hotels, service apartments and offices, purely due to the heavy concentration of people in these buildings. However, these risks can be drastically reduced by taking appropriate fire protection measures such as having sprinkler system, fire doors and firewall grade party walls.
In the case of external wall cladding, the use of SEVENBOND® FR panel will have reduced the spread of flame thus minimising the chance of loss of lives due to fire.
The SEVENBOND® FR series with its fire-resistant core materials fully complies with the most demanding fire safety standards worldwide and is clearly illustrated in the table below:
|Testing Standard||Flame Spread||Smoke Emission||Burning Droplets||Temperature||Self Extinguishing||With System||Result|
|BS 476 : Part 6 & 7||Class O|
|EN 13501-1||B, s1, d0|
|ASTM E-84 (NFPA 255)||Class A|
The SEVENBOND®-FR series are supreme fire-resistant materials and fully comply with the most demanding fire safety standards worldwide as shown in the fire classifications table below:
|BS 476 : Part 6 & 7||Class O|| SIRIM
|EN 13501-1||B, s1, d0||Intertek||Europe|
|ASTM E-84 (NFPA 255)||Class A||Intertek||USA|
|NFPA 285||Passed||Intertek||USA (2)|
1) BS 476 : Part 6 and 7 tests were conducted in SIRIM Malaysia and TUV-SUD-PSB, Singapore. The tests conducted in Singapore were on the surface where the aluminium skin was removed. This is to ensure even the FR core material meets the Class O classification.
2) EN 13501-1 is the European fire testing standard. In Europe, a B S1 d0 rating is required for ACP panels used as external cladding for high rise buildings.
3) NFPA E84 and NFPA 285 are the fire testing standard of the National Fire Protection Association of USA. The NFPA 285 is a multi-story fire propagation test and is one of the most stringent test. The passing of these two tests are a prerequisite for ACP panels to be used for high rise projects.
