The European fire resistance standard for construction products is BS EN 13501-1. A series of rigorous independent testing is used to classify products into seven distinct categories, the highest of which are A1 and A2.
A1: Non-combustible (no contribution to fire). A2: Limited combustibility - Very limited contribution to fire.
In addition, there are two more classifications that look at further key fire safety elements, smoke generation and the development of burning droplets and/or particles.
S1: Very limited amount of combustion gases. S2: Limited amount of combustion gases. S3: No requirement for development of combustion gases.
D0: No burning droplets or particles emitted. D1: Limited quantities of burning droplets or particles emitted, D2: No requirement for development of burning droplets or particles.
