Cable management systems - Test method for content of halogens

This document specifies a method for the determination of the content of halogens in Cable Management System (CMS) products or system components made completely or partly of combustible material(s). The determination is made by combustion and subsequent analysis of the combustion product by Ion Chromatography. This document specifies how CMS products or system components can be declared as halogen free. This document is for environmental performance only. Compliance with this document does not imply the absence of toxicity, corrosivity or opacity of produced smoke, or other reaction to fire characteristics. If any of these characteristics are to be evaluated, the appropriate standards can be used.

Systèmes de gestion de câblage - Méthode d'essai relative à la teneur en halogènes

Le présent document spécifie une méthode de détermination de la teneur en halogènes dans les produits ou les composants des systèmes de systèmes de câblage (CMS, Cable Management System) fabriqués partiellement ou complètement en matériaux combustibles. La détermination est réalisée par combustion et analyse ultérieure du produit de combustion par chromatographie ionique. Le présent document spécifie la façon dont les produits ou les composants des systèmes de CMS peuvent être déclarés sans halogène. Le présent document ne couvre que les performances environnementales. La conformité au présent document n'implique pas l'absence de toxicité, de corrosivité ou d'opacité de la fumée générée, ou d'autres caractéristiques de réaction au feu. Lorsque l'une de ces caractéristiques, quelle qu’elle soit, doit être évaluée, les normes appropriées peuvent être utilisées.
