There are many factors which may affect the results of a reaction-to-fire test. Due to the labour intensive nature of fire testing, many factors are operator dependent. The training, experience and attitude of the operator are therefore 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 a harmonized course in CEN/TS 1187 test method 2. This test method is included in the fire classification of construction products and building elements according to Part 5 Classification using data from external fire exposure to roofs test, EN 13501-5.
The course is open for both EGOLF and non-EGOLF members.
The course is held in English.
The course includes a theoretic part regarding CEN/TS 1187, test method 2 and hands on work in the laboratory.
