Fire resistance tests for non-loadbearing elements - Part 3: Curtain walling - Full configuration (complete assembly)

This European Standard specifies a method for determining the fire resistance of curtain walling systems – full configuration.
This European Standard is used in conjunction with EN 1363-1.
NOTE   Annex A gives further information on the test method.
The test method is applicable to curtain walling systems, supported by the floor slab(s), designed for the purpose of providing fire resistance. The test is not appropriate for testing curtain walling systems which incorporate non-fire resistant glazing.
The fire resistance of curtain walling systems can be determined under internal or external exposure conditions. In the latter case the external fire exposure curve given in EN 1363-2 is used.
Tests on individual parts of a curtain walling system (e.g. horizontal linear gap seal, panel) or systems with non-fire resistant glazing as windows are performed using prEN 1364-4. For vertical gap seals, this standard (EN 1364-3) applies.
Overcladding is not covered by this European Standard.

Feuerwiderstandsprüfungen für nichttragende Bauteile - Teil 3: Vorhangfassaden - Gesamtausführung

Diese Europäische Norm legt ein Verfahren zur Bestimmung der Feuerwiderstandsdauer von Vorhang¬fassadensystemen  Gesamtausführung fest.
Diese Europäische Norm gilt zusammen mit EN 1363 1.
ANMERKUNG   Der Anhang A enthält weitere Informationen zum Prüfverfahren.
Das Prüfverfahren ist auf feuerwiderstandsfähige Vorhangfassadensystemen, deren Lasten von der/den Decke/Decken abgetragen wird, anwendbar. Das Prüfverfahren ist nicht auf Vorhangfassadensystemen mit normaler Verglasung ohne Brandschutzeigenschaften anwendbar.
Die Feuerwiderstandsdauer von Vorhangfassadensystemen kann bei Brandbeanspruchung von der Innen- oder Außenseite ermittelt werden. Im zweiten Fall wird die Außenbrandkurve nach EN 1363 2 benutzt.
Prüfverfahren für einzelne Teile von Vorhangfassadensystemen (wie horizontale Bauteilfugenabdichtungen, Paneele) oder Systeme mit nicht feuerwiderstandsfähigem Glas in Fenstern werden nach prEN 1364 4 durchgeführt. Vertikale Bauteilfugenabdichtungen sind nach dieser Europäischen Norm (EN 1364 3) beurteil¬bar.
Fassadenbekleidungen für Außenwände werden nicht von dieser Europäischen Norm abgedeckt.

Essais de résistance au feu des éléments non-porteurs dans les bâtiments - Partie 3: Façades rideaux - Configuration en grandeur réelle (assemblage complet)

La présente Norme européenne prescrit une méthode de détermination de la résistance au feu des façades rideaux (configuration en grandeur réelle).
La présente Norme européenne est utilisée conjointement avec l'EN 1363-1.
NOTE   L’Annexe A donne des informations supplémentaires sur la méthode d’essai.
Cette méthode d'essai est applicable aux façades rideaux, soutenues par la ou les dalles de plancher, conçues pour assurer une résistance contre le feu. L'essai n’est pas approprié aux façades rideaux comportant un vitrage non résistant au feu.
La résistance au feu des façades rideaux peut être déterminée sous des conditions d'exposition au feu interne ou externe. Dans ce dernier cas, on utilise la courbe d'exposition au feu externe donnée dans l'EN 1363-2.
Les essais sur les éléments individuels d'une façade rideau (par exemple, calfeutrement horizontal linéaire, panneau) ou sur les systèmes comportant un vitrage non résistant au feu faisant office de fenêtres sont réalisés à l'aide du prEN 1364-4. Cette norme (EN 1364-3) s’applique au calfeutrement vertical.
La présente Norme européenne ne traite pas des systèmes de bardage.

EN 1364-3:2006 (E) 5 Introduction CAUTION The attention of all persons concerned with managing and carrying out this fire resistance test is drawn to the fact that fire testing may be hazardous and that there is a possibility that toxic and/or harmful smoke and gases may be evolved during the test. Mechanical and operational hazards may also arise during the construction of the test elements or structures, during their testing and during the disposal of test residues. An assessment of all potential hazards and risks to health should be made and safety precautions should be identified and provided. Written safety instructions should be issued. Appropriate training should be given to relevant personnel. Laboratory personnel should ensure that they follow written safety instructions at all times. SIST EN 1364-3:2007

1 Scope This European Standard specifies a method for determining the fire resistance of curtain walling systems – full configuration. This European Standard is used in conjunction with EN 1363-1. NOTE Annex A gives further information on the test method. The test method is applicable to curtain walling systems, supported by the floor slab(s), designed for the purpose of providing fire resistance. The test is not appropriate for testing curtain walling systems which incorporate non-fire resistant glazing. The fire resistance of curtain walling systems can be determined under internal or external exposure conditions. In the latter case the external fire exposure curve given in EN 1363-2 is used. Tests on individual parts of a curtain walling system (e.g. horizontal linear gap seal, panel) or systems with non-fire resistant glazing as windows are performed using prEN 1364-4. For vertical gap seals, this standard (EN 1364-3) applies. Overcladding is not covered by this European Standard. 2 Normative references The following referenced documents are indispensable for the application of this document.

EN 1364-3:2006 (E) 7 3.2 curtain wall wall which usually consists of vertical and horizontal structural members, connected together and anchored to the supporting structure of the building and infilled, to form a lightweight, space enclosing continuous skin, which provides, by itself or in conjunction with the building construction, all the normal functions of an external wall, but does not take on any of the load bearing characteristics of the building (see EN 13830) 3.3 fire resistant glazing glazing system consisting of one or more transparent or translucent panes with a suitable method of mounting, with e.g. frames, seals and fixing materials, capable of satisfying the appropriate fire resistance criteria 3.4 fire resistant insulated glazing fire resistant glazing which satisfies both the integrity and insulation criteria for the anticipated fire resistance period 3.5 fire resistant non-insulated glazing fire resistant glazing which satisfies the integrity and, where required, the radiation criteria for the anticipated fire resistance period but which is not intended to provide insulation 3.6 glazed elements building elements with one or more (light transmissive) panes, that are built in a frame with fixings, gaskets or seals 3.7 pane single piece of glass 3.8 mullion vertical structural framing member of a curtain wall supporting adjacent infill elements, glass areas, windows, panels or doors (see prEN 13119) 3.9 transom horizontal structural framing member of a curtain wall supporting adjacent infill elements, glass areas, windows, panels or doors (see prEN 13119) 3.10 over-cladding system protection system fixed to an external wall for weather protection 3.11 associated wall construction mechanism of closing the vertical side of the furnace for the required period of fire resistance 4 Test equipment 4.1 General In addition to the test equipment specified in EN 1363-1, and if applicable EN 1363-2, the equipment in 4.2 and 4.3 is required for internal or external exposure. SIST EN 1364-3:2007

EN 1364-3:2006 (E) 8 4.2 Internal exposure The test equipment includes:  two floors adequately supported by the floor of the laboratory and/or the furnace;  associated and/or simulated wall constructions which provide an enclosure between the furnace and the specimen. 4.3 External exposure A supporting frame which supports the specimen and is designed to allow the specimen to be supported and located adjacent to the furnace, see Figure 1. 5 Test conditions The heating and pressure conditions and the furnace atmosphere shall conform to those given in EN 1363-1 or, if applicable, EN 1363-2. 6 Test specimen 6.1 Size 6.1.1 General The exposed width and height shall not be less than 3 m. There shall be a clearance of 50 mm between the floor of the test room (or any other element under the edge of the test specimen to give support) and the bottom edge of the test specimen (see Figures 2 and 3). 6.1.2 Internal fire exposure The test specimen for internal exposure shall include the curtain wall and the horizontal joints and, if required, the vertical gap seal with the simulated wall. If the vertical gap seal is not part of the test specimen, then two associated wall constructions are required. The test specimen (see Figure 2) shall be of sufficient height to allow: a) a minimum of 500 mm of the test specimen to extend beyond the top of the upper floor construction, and b) the test specimen to extend 150 mm below the upper surface of the lower floor construction with the bottom edge supported as in practice. If an assessment of a vertical linear gap is required, the test specimen shall then be of sufficient width to allow a minimum of 500 mm of the test specimen to extend beyond the outside of the simulated wall. 6.1.3 External fire exposure For external exposure the test specimen shall be the curtain wall only, see Figure 3. The test specimen shall allow: SIST EN 1364-3:2007

EN 1364-3:2006 (E) 9 a) a minimum of 500 mm of the test specimen to extend beyond the top of the upper floor. The floor is optional in this case and an alternative construction may be used but the size of the specimen shall comply with this requirement. The 500 mm extension of the test specimen beyond the side of the associated wall construction, specified in 6.1.2, may be reduced or removed when using external fire exposure; b) the test specimen to extend 150 mm past the upper surface of the lower floor construction with the bottom edge unsupported. 6.2 Number The number of test specimens shall be as given in EN 1363-1. However, where information is required under different exposure conditions, additional tests shall be undertaken for each situation using separate test specimens. 6.3 Design 6.3.1 General The test specimen shall be either: a) fully representative of the construction intended for use in practice, including fixings, expansion joints, linear gap seals, any surface finishes and fittings which are essential and may influence its behaviour in the test, or b) be designed to obtain the widest field of direct application of the test result to other similar constructions as defined in Clause 13. 6.3.2 Restraint The test specimen shall be fixed to the top and bottom floor construction with either the type of fixings used in practice or with fixings representative of the type of fixings used in practice. Both vertical edges shall be unrestrained. A gap seal between the associated and simulated wall construction and the mullions shall be used to allow unrestrained movement of the mullions (see Figure 6 for options). Maximum movement of the mullion is achieved when option in Figure 6 D1B is used. 6.4 Construction The test specimen shall be constructed as described in EN 1363-1. 6.5 Verification Verification of the test specimen shall be carried out as described in EN 1363-1. 7 Installation of the test specimen 7.1 General The test specimen shall be supported by the floor constructions, see 7.2, as in practice.
