Is your old wood good enough?

EN 16755 - Durability of reaction to fire performance - Classes of fire-retardant treated wood products in interior and exterior end use applications.

Cause

Multi-storey buildings with a wooden facade often have the Euroclass B-s1,d0 besides of a facade test (e.g. SP FIRE 105). The requirements should remain even when the wood has been exposed to the weather.

To ensure that your product is up to standard during its life cycle, the product shall be tested according to EN 16755 - Durability of reaction to fire performance.

This means that your product is fire tested in  the cone calorimeter (ISO 5660-1) before and after it is exposed to an accelerated weathering procedure.

Method

EN 16755 - Durability of reaction to fire performance - Classes of fire-retardant treated wood products in interior and exterior end use applications.

ISO 5660-1 - Reaction-to-fire tests – Heat release, smoke production and mass loss rate.
