Secure storage units - Classification and methods of test for resistance to fire - Light fire storage units

This European Standard specifies requirements for light fire storage units providing protection against fire.
The method of test is specified to determine the ability of light fire storage units to protect paper media from the effects of fire. Two levels of fire exposure periods (LFS 30 P and LFS 60 P) are specified using the maximum temperature increase permitted within the storage space of the light fire storage unit.
Requirements are also specified for the test specimen, the technical documentation for the test specimen, correlation of the test specimen with the technical documentation, preparation for type testing and test procedures.
A scheme to classify the light fire storage units from the test results is also given (see Table 1).

Wertbehältnisse - Klassifizierung und Methoden zur Prüfung des Widerstandes gegen Brand - Leichte Brandschutzschränke

Diese Europäische Norm legt Anforderungen an leichte Brandschutzschränke zum Schutz gegen Brände fest.
Das Prüfverfahren dient der Ermittlung der Widerstandsfähigkeit von leichten Brandschutzschränken, um Papierdokumente vor Brandeinwirkung zu schützen. Zwei Stufen der Beflammungsdauer (LFS 30 P und LFS 60 P) sind vorgesehen, die unter Berücksichtigung der im Innenraum des Brandschutzschrankes maximal zulässigen Temperaturerhöhung definiert werden.
Außerdem sind Anforderungen für den Probekörper, die technische Dokumentation des Probekörpers, die Übereinstimmung von Probekörper mit der technischen Dokumentation, die Vorbereitung der Typprüfung sowie das Prüfverfahren definiert.
Ferner wird ein Schema zur Klassifizierung von leichten Brandschutzschränken nach ihrem Prüfergebnis gegeben (siehe Tabelle 1).

Unités de stockage en lieu sûr - Classification et méthodes d'essais de résistance au feu - Meubles ignifuges premier niveau

La présente Norme européenne spécifie les exigences relatives aux meubles ignifuges premier niveau
procurant une protection contre l’incendie.
Cette méthode d’essai vise à déterminer la capacité des meubles ignifuges premier niveau à protéger le
média papier contre les effets du feu. Deux niveaux de durée d’exposition au feu (MIPN 30 P et MIPN 60 P)
sont spécifiées, compte tenu de l’augmentation maximale de température admise dans l’espace de stockage
du meuble ignifuge premier niveau.
Les exigences s’appliquent également à l’éprouvette, à la documentation technique concernant l’éprouvette, à
la corrélation entre l’éprouvette et la documentation technique, à la préparation de l’essai de type et aux
modes opératoires d’essai.
Une classification des meubles ignifuges premier niveau en fonction des résultats d’essai est également
fournie (voir Tableau 1).

EN 15659:2009 (E) 4 Introduction The testing conditions given in this European Standard provide a basis for simulating fires to determine, in a reproducible way, the fire resistance of light fire storage units at various protection levels. The protection levels enable a comparison to be made of the resistance against fire provided by different constructions. The threshold value for the maximum temperature increase of 150 K at every measuring point in the protection levels LFS 30 P and LFS 60 P for light fire storage units from a starting temperature of (21 ± 1)°C, as defined in this European Standard, refers to the relatively short-term stress due to high temperatures during a fire test. It is not normally experienced by paper media stored in light fire storage units in the normal and correct way. SIST EN 15659:2009

EN 15659:2009 (E) 5 1 Scope This European Standard specifies requirements for light fire storage units providing protection against fire.

The method of test is specified to determine the ability of light fire storage units to protect paper media from the effects of fire. Two levels of fire exposure periods (LFS 30 P and LFS 60 P) are specified using the maximum temperature increase permitted within the storage space of the light fire storage unit. Requirements are also specified for the test specimen, the technical documentation for the test specimen, correlation of the test specimen with the technical documentation, preparation for type testing and test procedures. A scheme to classify the light fire storage units from the test results is also given (see Table 1). 2 Normative references The following referenced documents are indispensable for the application of this document. For dated references, only the edition cited applies. For undated references, the latest edition of the referenced document (including any amendments) applies. EN 1363-1:1999, Fire resistance tests — Part 1: General requirements EN 60584-1, Thermocouples — Part 1: Reference tables (IEC 60584-1:1995). 3 Terms and definitions For the purposes of this document, the following terms and definitions apply. 3.1 light fire storage unit storage unit designed to protect paper media, except for paper grades where data loss occurs at temperatures below 172°C, as well as valuables against the effects of temperatures up to 172°C NOTE A light fire storage unit can have doors, drawers, lids, connections and fittings. 3.2 compartment part of a light fire storage unit which can be closed with a separate door, lid or cover NOTE A compartment formed by inserting a shelf board is not a compartment within the meaning of this standard. 3.3 lock device which verifies an entered code and performs a blocking function on the boltwork or the door 4 Requirements, classification and locks 4.1 Light fire storage units shall provide protection against the effects of fire (see Clause 6) and be classified as specified in Table 1.

Where LFS is the symbol applied for light fire storage units. NOTE 2

The numerical values in the protection level are the duration of fire exposure during the type test in minutes.

NOTE 3

P represents protection of data on paper, excluding those paper grades which lose data below 172ºC.

4.2 Light fire storage units shall be fitted with a lock. 5 Test specimen, technical documentation and correlation 5.1 Test specimen Of several models of a series (with one door, two doors, drawers, etc.) having the same design, protection and construction features (type and thickness of construction and protective materials, rabbet geometry, etc.) as well as the same base (with a tolerance of ± 15 % each applicable to the internal dimensions of width and depth), the models with the smallest and largest internal height resp. the lowest and highest number of drawers shall be tested.

Light fire storage units with double doors shall be regarded as a separate model range. Where a variety of locking options is available, the test specimen used in the type test shall be coordinated with the testing laboratory. Two identical light fire storage units shall be available: one for the fire endurance test, the other for verifying correlation of the filling material with the technical documentation. The testing laboratory shall decide which test sp
