BS 8414 Fire performance of external cladding systems

Instytut Ceramiki i Materiałów Budowlanych [Ceramics and Building Material Institute] has been the first in Poland to implement a large scale fire testing for building façades. Following the tragic fires of building façades that have recently swept across Europe, fire safety has become a particular area of concern for both the investors and institutions or authorities that set the requirements for fire safety of building materials.

The test compliant with BS 8414-1:2005 + A1:2017 „Fire performance of external cladding systems. Part1. Test method for non – loadbearing external cladding system applied to the masonry face of a building” allows to determine the fire resistance of non-load bearing external cladding systems, rain screens and external wall insulation systems when applied to the face of a building and exposed to an external fire under controlled conditions.

The test is representative of a fully developed fire in a room adjacent to a building wall, venting through a wall opening.  Using this test it is possible to assess damages to the external cladding and in particular the ability of the cladding to resist the spread of flame up or internal fire spread over or through the system.
