Reaction to fire tests for floorings, you should know about ISO 9239-1

ISO 9239-1

It is applicable to the measurement and description of the properties of floorings in response to heat and flame under controlled laboratory conditions. It should not be used alone to describe or appraise the fire hazard or fire risk of floorings under actual fire conditions.

This method is applicable to all types of flooring. e.g., textile carpet, cork, wood, rubber and plastics coverings as well as coatings. Results obtained by this method reflect the performance of the flooring, including any substrate if used. Modifications of the backing, bonding to a substrate, underlay or other changes of the flooring may affect test results.

And here is our solution for the testing standard:

SKYLINE Radiant Flooring Panel Test Apparatus

The ISO 9239 Radiant Flooring Panel test is the cornerstone of the flooring materials reaction to fire tests in the Euroclass system. The test measures the spread of flame of the sample, under thermal exposure, using a radiant heat ignition source. The thermal exposure is that of a fire growing in the room of origin that through a door opening, radiates onto the floorings in an adjacent room or corridor. The apparatus can also be used for tests to standards ASTM E648 and DIN 4102; Part 14.
