outcome of a process (involving the application of defined rules that may incorporate calculation procedures) that predicts, for a variation of a product property and/or its intended end-use application(s), a test result on the basis of one or more test results to the same test standard 4 Principles 4.1 General principles Extended application is a prediction of the expected fire resistance of fire resistant glazed elements. It may be based on interpolation between or extrapolation from test data. The fundamental consideration shall be that the fire resistant glazed element after extension would achieve the required fire performance if it were to be tested according to EN 1364-1:2015. The test results are applicable to similar constructions where one or more of the changes in the direct field of application in EN 1364-1:2015 and this standard are made, and it is the manufacturer’s responsibility that the construction continues to comply with the appropriate design code for its stiffness and stability. For test reports based on an edition of EN 1364-1 earlier than 2015, the direct field of application according to EN 1364-1:2015 may be applied. An increase in the classification time (e.g. from EI 30 min to EI 45 min) and/or changes to the fire performance classification (e.g. from E to EW) achieved in the reference test shall not be permitted by the application of the extended application rules. The only exception is detailed in 7.2. The overview regarding the relevant changeable parameters for extended application for fire resistant glazed elements is given in Table 1. Extended application reports shall be prepared according to EN 15725. SIST EN 15254-4:2019

EN 15254-4:2018 (E) 7 Fire resistant glazed elements function as an integral system in which the individual components (glass, glazing system materials and framing system) are combined in such a way that they are effective in meeting the defined fire resistance criteria. However, in this document fire resistant glazed elements are separately characterized as the glazing system and the framing system (see example in Figure 1).

EN 15254-4:2018 (E) 8 4.2 Use of test evidence 4.2.1 General The applicant for the extended application shall either be the “owner” (i.e. sponsor) of all reference tests and pre-existing test data being submitted for the extension, or have written permission from the owner to use the submitted test evidence. 4.2.2 Reference tests Reference tests are the basis for any changes. For some of the changes an overrun time is required in accordance with EN 1364-1:2015. A reference test may be submitted for either rectangular or non- rectangular panes. Reference tests provide the main source of data to determine the following: — resistance to fire classification (integrity E, integrity with radiation EW or integrity with insulation EI); — maximum pane area and dimensions for the fire resistant glass; — maximum dimensions of the fire resistant glazed element for each type of frame; — side exposed to fire. Reference tests may also provide other data to assist in determining the following: — permitted dimensional changes to the framing system; — changes to the glazing system. 4.2.3 Use of pre-existing test data Pre-existing test data may be used to support extended application, for instance to evaluate the influence of a particular component (e.g. glazing material) or aspect of the design (e.g. direction of fire exposure) or to establish which design variations affect the performance in the most or least onerous way. If this can be identified, then a reference test of the most onerous design may be undertaken. If the product achieves the required classification then the other less onerous variations will be covered. The relevant clauses state when pre-existing test data may be used. SIST EN 15254-4:2019

An extended application that has already been granted can be used for a new extended application, provided it can be shown that the new changes do not contradict any of the principles used to establish the first extended application. For reasons of traceability, all supporting documents used for any extension should be referenced in the extended application report. SIST EN 15254-4:2019

EN 15254-4:2018 (E) 10 5 Specific changes to the glazing system 5.1 Exchange of the fire resistant glass 5.1.1 General The exchange of the tested fire resistant glass, for another is allowed without additional test, provided that — both glass types are within the same glass product range, and — the replacing fire resistant glass has at least the same resistance to fire classification according to EN 13501-2 as the tested glass, and — the dimensions (width x height) of the replacing glass are within the maximum dimensions given by the field of direct application of the tested glass. There are three major types of fire resistant glass: — fire resistant glass consisting only of the glass component that provides the fire resistance (i.e. a monolithic or a laminated glass) indicated in Figure 2, type A; — an insulating glass unit (IGU) consisting of the component that provides the fire resistance, a monolithic counter pane with or without additional coatings on either side of the counter pane and an optional middle pane with or without coatings indicated in Figure 2, type B; — an IGU consisting of the component that provides the fire resistance, a laminated counter pane with or without additional coatings on either side of the counter pane and an optional middle pane with or without coatings, indicated in Figure 2, type C. NOTE

An IGU can consist of a glass component that provides the fire resistance and one or more cavities and counter panes.

EN 15254-4:2018 (E) 11 For classification E, EW and EI the following rules apply: The overall glass thickness may be increased provided that no fire protection interlayer and no individual glass component will be decreased. Specific rules are given in 5.1.2, 5.1.3 and 5.1.4. The thickness of individual non-fire protection components (e.g. polyvinyl butyral PVB, ethyl vinyl acetate EVA, polyurethane PU, polycarbonate PC) shall not

be increased. It may be decreased which results in a decrease of the overall glass thickness. Specific rules are given in 5.1.2, 5.1.3 and 5.1.4. For IGUs, the width of each cavity may be reduced. The width of each cavity may be increased by not more than a factor of 2. Specific rules are given in 5.1.2, 5.1.3 and 5.1.4. 5.1.2 Classification EI with the component that provides the fire resistance tested on the exposed face The following exchanges are allowed without additional test evidence: a) Test results of type A are equally applicable to type B and C but not vice versa. b) Test results of type B are equally applicable to type C and vice versa. c) Test results of type B without additional coatings are equally applicable to type B with additional coatings but not vice versa. d) Test results of type C without additional coatings are equally applicable to type C with additional coatings but not vice versa. e) Test results of type C without additional coatings are equally applicable to type B with additional coatings but not vice versa. f) Test results of type B without additional coatings are equally applicable to type C with additional coatings but not vice versa. g) Test results of IGUs obtained with one cavity are equally applicable for IGUs with 2 cavities. The total width of both cavities may not be increased by more than a factor of 2 based on the tested cavity width. h) Additional non-fire resistant glass panes may be added to the tested glass using non-fire protection interlayers with a thickness < 1mm.

All other non-rectangular shapes may only be cut from the tested rectangular pane size and shall not be extended further. 5.3 Increase of glass dimensions For individual panes where the E or EI classification is relevant, no extension to those defined by the field of direct application is allowed. For an individual pane where the EW classification is relevant, the individual pane size of a fire resistant glass may be increased according to the field of direct application rules given in EN 1364-1:2015, A.4.3.3, 1st and 2nd paragraph, under the precondition that the dimensions (width and height) of the total glazed test element are not increased and the radiation does not exceed 15 kW/m2. The value Wext of an individual rectangular or circular glass shall be calculated according to Formulae B.1 and B.4 given in Annex B. The increased glass dimension can also be used in combination with the rules given in 7.1 NOTE This requirement deviates from EN 1364-1:2015, A.4.3.3, where the extension of the individual glass pane is based on an unjustifiable request of a specific radiation limit. 5.4 Exchange of timber glazing beads The basis for the exchange of timber types is a reference test together with data on the basis of density tests (when available), or calculations according to EN 1995-1-2 or reference values for the replacement timber type and its density. Glued laminated timber shall only be used if it has been tested according to EN 1364-1. Test results of any solid or laminated timber type apply to other timber types except beech under the following conditions: — Glued laminated timber may be replaced by solid timber but not vice versa. — Timber to be exchanged shall have the same or higher density as tested. — Hard wood with a density

· 450 kg/m3 shall not be exchanged with soft wood. Beech may only be used instead of soft wood or hard wood with a density
