EGOLF Reaction to Fire

There are many factors which may affect the results of a reaction-to-fire test. Due to the very labour intensive nature off fire testing, many of the factors are operator dependent. The training, experience and attitude of the operator are crucial to eliminate such variables that may significantly affect the degree of uncertainty of measurements

In order to reach common interpretations and minimize the operator generated uncertainties, EGOLF (European Group of Organisations for Fire testing, inspection and certification), is arranging harmonization courses in various EN standards related to reaction-to-fire. These test methods are included in the fire classification of construction products and building elements, EN 13501-1.

The course is open for both EGOLF and non-EGOLF members.

The course is held in English.

The course contains theoretical information and practical tasks in the laboratory of the following methods:

  • Non-combustibility, EN ISO 1182
  • Determination of gross heat of combustion (calorimetric value), EN ISO 1716
  • Building products, excluding floorings, exposed to thermal attack by a single burning item (SBI), EN 13823
  • Ignitability of construction products exposed to direct impingement of flame - Part 2, Testing with a single flame, EN ISO 11925-2
  • Determination of the burning behavior of flooring products using a radiant heat source, EN ISO 9239-1
