Fire Testing & Certification
Tested at UKAS Fire Test Laboratory -

We issue a Fire Certificate upon request for each correctly specified project for Insurance, Fire and Building Authority and Client Records against proof of purchase. Certified Fire protection is guaranteed if all instructions are followed on suitable surfaces.
Flamespread & Smoke Protection
When exposed to fire, Thermoguard Wallcoat expands to create a fire protective barrier, insulating surfaces from heat and oxygen and preventing combustion. Thermoguard Wallcoat Smoke & Flame Retardant Topcoat (Matt & Eggshell) actively suppresses smoke, particles and flaming droplets.
UK Fire Safety Order 2005, Flamespread and Smoke
The Fire Safety Order 2005 requires property managers to comply with current fire standards for corridors, stairways, entrance lobbies etc. Even on non-combustible walls & ceilings, multiple layers of incompatible paints “Multi-Layer” often create the worst Class 4 - EN Class E - Surface Spread of Flame risk.
While the British Class 0 is still accepted, it will soon become defunct, as it has been superseded by the safer standard BS EN Class B s1 d0, with its more rigorous flame-spread protection and control of dangerous smoke and burnt particulates.
NEW EU/BS EN Fire Standard Explained
- EU fire standard BS EN Class B replaces BS476 Class 0
- In 2012 both BS476 and BS EN comply, but BS 476 is rapidly being replaced by the more severe and realistic EN test including air flow.
- BS EN also monitors dangerous smoke. The safest class is s1
- BS EN also measures flaming droplets & burnt particulates. The safest class is d0
- The new safest standard for corridors, stairs etc is BS EN Class B s1 d0.
