Calls for a single facade test method in Europe

March 2016 News Release

With the European Commision (EC) currently evaluating the options for the development of a new facade test and classification system in the European Union, the EAPFP is calling for a single test method to be established.

The recent Address Downtown Dubai hotel fire and other high profile fires in tall buildings have highlighted that facades present a real fire risk and that a better understanding of their behaviour in fire is vital. There is now general agreement that conventional small scale reaction to fire tests and larger scale fire resistance tests are unsuitable for modelling the behaviour of facade fires.
