Secure storage units - Classification and methods of test for resistance to fire - Part 2: Data rooms and data container

This part of the European Standard EN 1047 specifies requirements for data rooms and data containers. It includes a method of test for the determination of the ability of data rooms and data containers to protect temperature and humidity sensitive data media (see 3.5) and hardware systems (see 3.6) from the effects of fire. A test method for measuring the resistance to mechanical stress (impact test) provided by data rooms type B and data containers is also specified.
Requirements are also specified for test specimens, the technical documentation of the test specimens, materials specimens, physical fittings, the correlation of test specimens with the technical documentation and the preparation for type testing, as test procedures as well as the series production.
In addition, a scheme to classify data rooms and data containers from the test results is given (see Table 1).
As well as providing protection against fire, correctly installed data rooms and data containers offer a defined protection against impacts caused by failure during fire of components and objects external to the data room or data container.
Data rooms and data containers having the same design, protection and construction features (type and thickness of construction and protective materials, rebate geometry, lockings, doors, etc.) will only be given the same protection classification as that of the test specimen if the tolerances are within the ranges specified in Clause 7.
NOTE   This European Standard does not regulate the use of data rooms in the meaning of the building laws of the respective countries. In the construction of data rooms, the respective national requirements should be considered.

Dieser Teil der Europäischen Norm EN 1047 legt Anforderungen an Datensicherungsräume und Datensicherungscontainer fest. Er umfasst eine Prüfmethode zur Ermittlung der Widerstandsfähigkeit von Datensicherungsräumen und Datensicherungscontainern zum Schutz von temperatur- und feuchtigkeitsempfindlichen Datenträgern (siehe 3.5) und Hardwaresystemen (siehe 3.6) vor Brandeinwirkung. Ferner wird eine Prüfmethode zur Messung des Widerstandes gegen mechanische Beanspruchung (Stoßprüfung) auf Datensicherungsräume Typ B und Datensicherungscontainer festgelegt.
Außerdem sind Anforderungen für die Probekörper, Technische Dokumentation der Probekörper, Materialproben, Einbauten, Übereinstimmung von Probekörpern mit der Technischen Dokumentation und die Vorbereitung der Typprüfung , die Prüfverfahren sowie für die Serienprodukte definiert.
Ferner wird ein Schema zur Klassifizierung von Datensicherungsräumen und Datensicherungscontainern entsprechend ihrem Prüfergebnis gegeben (siehe Tabelle 2).
Neben dem Schutz vor Bränden bieten sachgemäß installierte Datensicherungsräume und Datensicherungscontainer zusätzlich Schutz gegen Stöße aufgrund eines brandbedingten Versagens von Bauteilen und Objekten, die sich außerhalb des Datensicherungsraumes oder Datensicherungscontainers befinden.
Datensicherungsräume und Datensicherungscontainer, die über dieselbe Konstruktion, denselben Schutz und Aufbau (Art und Dicke der Konstruktions- und Schutzmaterialien, Anordnung der Falze, Verschlüsse, Türen usw.) verfügen, können nur dann in die Güteklasse wie der Probekörper eingestuft werden, wenn die Toleranzen nach Abschnitt 7 eingehalten sind.
ANMERKUNG   Diese Europäische Norm regelt nicht die Verwendung des Datensicherungsraumes im Sinne des Baurechts der jeweiligen Länder. Bei der Errichtung von Datensicherungsräumen wird empfohlen die jeweiligen nationalen Anforderungen zu berücksichtigen.

Unités de stockage en lieu sûr - Classification et méthodes d'essai de résistance au feu - Partie 2: Conteneurs et chambres réfractaires

La présente partie de la Norme européenne EN 1047 spécifie les exigences relatives aux conteneurs et chambres réfractaires. Elle présente une méthode d'essai permettant de déterminer la capacité des chambres et conteneurs réfractaires à protéger les supports d’informations (voir 3.5) ainsi que les systèmes matériels (voir 3.6) sensibles à la température et à l'humidité des effets d'un incendie. Une méthode d’essai est également prescrite pour mesurer la résistance à une force mécanique (essai d’impact) des chambres réfractaires de type B et des conteneurs réfractaires.
De plus, des exigences sont spécifiées pour les éprouvettes, la documentation technique devant accompagner les éprouvettes, les échantillons de matériels, les équipements matériels, la corrélation entre les éprouvettes et la documentation technique, la préparation des essais de type, les procédures d'essai, ainsi que la production en série.
Un plan est également présenté (voir Tableau 1) permettant une classification des chambres et conteneurs réfractaires à partir des résultats des essais.
Les chambres et les conteneurs réfractaires correctement installés assurent non seulement une protection définie contre l’incendie mais aussi contre les conséquences de la défaillance, au cours de l’incendie, de composants et d’objets externes.
Les chambres et conteneurs réfractaires ayant les mêmes caractéristiques de conception, de protection et de construction (types et épaisseurs des matériaux de construction et de protection, géométrie des feuillures, verrouillages, portes, etc.) appartiennent à la même classification de protection que celle de l’éprouvette seulement si les tolérances se trouvent dans les fourchettes spécifiées dans l’Article 7.
NOTE   La présente Norme européenne ne réglemente pas l’utilisation des chambres réfractaires au sens des lois sur la construction, applicables dans les pays respectifs. Il convient que les exigences nationales respectives sur la construction de chambres réfractaires soient prises en considération.

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 data rooms and data containers.

The values for the maximum temperature increase in protection classes R60D and C60D specified in

accordance with Table 1 in this European Standard relate to the relatively short time of high

temperature exposure occurring during a fire test; in general, they are not experienced by data media

and systems hardware stored in data rooms and data containers in the normal and correct way.

EN 1363-1 establishes the general principles for determining the fire resistance of various elements of

construction when subjected to standard fire exposure conditions. Alternative and additional

procedures to meet special requirements are given in EN 1363-2. The development of the temperatures

and the relative humidity in the interior of a data room and data container cannot be measured under

the standard series EN 1363.

The sensitivity of media (see 3.5) and hardware systems (see 3.6) to temperature and humidity

requires additional protection with regard to excessively high temperatures and relative humidity,

proof of which cannot be furnished through type tests in accordance with the European Standards

EN 1363-1 and EN 1363-2. This additional protection requires a series of product solutions, the

performance of which is type tested and certified on the basis of the standard series EN 1047.

EN 1047-1 covers the type testing of data cabinets as freestanding units.

EN 1047-2 covers the type testing of data rooms and data containers. For wall, ceiling and floor

elements type tested within the framework of this system test, proof of an additional protection can be

furnished in accordance with the European Standards EN 1363-1 and EN 1363-2.

1 Scope

This part of the document EN 1047 specifies requirements for data rooms and data containers. It

includes a method of test for the determination of the ability of data rooms and data containers to

protect temperature and humidity sensitive data media (see 3.5) and hardware systems (see 3.6) from

the effects of fire. A test method for measuring the resistance to mechanical stress (impact test)

provided by data rooms type B and data containers is also specified.

Requirements are also specified for test specimens, the technical documentation of the test specimens,

materials specimens, physical fittings, the correlation of test specimens with the technical

documentation and the preparation for type testing, test procedures as well as the series production.

In addition, a scheme to classify data rooms and data containers from the test results is given (see

Table 1).

As well as providing protection against fire, correctly installed data rooms and data containers offer a

defined protection against impacts caused by failure during fire of components and objects external to

the data room or data container.

Data rooms and data containers having the same design, protection and construction features (type and

thickness of construction and protective materials, rebate geometry, lockings, doors, etc.) will only be

given the same protection classification as that of the test specimen if the tolerances are within the

ranges specified in Clause 7.

NOTE This document does not regulate the use of data rooms in the meaning of the building laws of the

respective countries. In the construction of data rooms, it is advised to consider the respective national

requirements.

60 refers to the 60 min fire exposure time;

D characterizes the kind of data media and hardware systems which may be protected and includes all

kinds of data media except those that lose their data at temperatures below 75 °C and relative air

humidity below 85 %.

Data rooms of type A are only installed within walls and ceilings with minimum fire integrity (see 3.2)

and are therefore not tested for impact resistance.

Assessment of comparison test results for modified or alternative constructions.

If the construction differs from the type-tested construction and for all other construction variants (see

5.6 and 6.6.4), the results of the comparison test conducted on the specimens are assessed according to

the following formula:
ΔTA ≥ ΔTB

ΔT = temperature rise in K of the test specimen having the construction of the type-tested specimen of

the data room resp. data container;

ΔTB = temperature rise in K of the alternative constructions or other construction variants during the

comparison test (see 6.6.4);
The floor of the data room shall be tested in addition (see 5.5 and 6.6.3)

At any time only one of the thermocouples as defined in 6.3.4 is allowed to reach a maximum of 55°K.
