This document 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 principle that has been embodied within all European standards relating to fire resistance testing is that where aspects and procedures of testing are common to all specific test methods e.g. the temperature/time curve, then they are specified in this test method. Where a general principle is common to many specific test methods but the details vary according to the element being tested (e.g. the measurement of unexposed face temperature), then the principle is given in this document, but the details are given in the specific test method. Where certain aspects of testing are unique to a particular specific test method (e.g. the air leakage test for fire dampers), then no details are included in this document.
The test results obtained might be directly applicable to other similar elements, or variations of the element tested. The extent to which this application is permitted depends upon the field of direct application of the test result. This is restricted by the provision of rules which limit the variation from the tested specimen without further evaluation. The rules for determining the permitted variations are given in each specific test method.
Variations outside those permitted by direct application are covered under extended application of test results. This results from an in-depth review of the design and performance of a particular product in test(s) by a recognized authority. Further consideration on direct and extended application is given in Annex A.
The duration for which the tested element, as modified by its direct or extended field of application, satisfies specific criteria will permit subsequent classification.
All values given in this document are nominal unless otherwise specified.

This document covers vertically mounted types of manual or powered, operable fabric curtain assemblies with downward closing operation. Curtain systems are different from (are separated from) door systems due to their not rigid closure element typically made of thin walled materials as for instance woven or knitted fabrics and foils. These closure elements are not able to carry significant loads normal to their surface by their bending stiffness. In other words: curtain systems are separated from door systems because they can only conduct pulling forces by tensile stress in plane to their surface. Pushing forces are not conducted in plane to their surface.

This European Standard describes the method to evaluate the performance of protective systems for electrical cable and busbar systems in order to maintain the circuit integrity under fire conditions to classify the protective system according to EN 13501 3 for the P classification. The test examines the behaviour of cable protection systems exposed to fire from outside. The tests specified in this standard are not aimed for assessing the performance of the fire protective system and the penetration seal for maintaining the requirements of the penetrated wall or ceiling (classification E / I).
This method is very different to EN 50200 for the PH classification and also to IEC 60331 11, IEC 60331 21, IEC 60331 23, and IEC 60331 25, which are not designed for fire protective systems for electrical cable systems.
This standard should be used in conjunction with EN 1363 1.
The test results apply to fire protective systems for electrical cable systems rated for voltages up to 1 kV.
The test procedure should also be used to determine the performance of protective systems for use with data and optical cables, however, verification procedures for such cables are still under development. Proposals are given in Annex C.
The protective system may include ventilation devices, inspection hatches, fixed or removable lids etc.
The tests specified in this standard are not aimed for assessing the performance of sprayed or painted coatings (e.g. intumescent or ablative coating, plastic film, epoxy resin) and similar protective layers (e.g. wrap, bandage) applied directly on the cables or bus bars as fire protective system. Also, cables and bus bars with intrinsic resistance to fire, and without fire protective systems around, are excluded (see CENELEC standard EN 50577).
This test method is not applicable for cabinets for electrical accessory containing bus systems, relays or similar.

This part of EN 1364 specifies a method for determining the fire resistance of ceilings, which in themselves possess fire resistance independent of any building element above them. This European Standard is used in conjunction with EN 1363-1.
The method is applicable to ceilings, which are either suspended by hangers or fixed directly to a supporting frame or construction, and to self-supporting ceilings.
Within this test method, the ceiling is exposed to fire, with the exposure being applied either:
a)   from below the ceiling, or
b)   from above the ceiling to simulate fire within the cavity above the ceiling.
The contribution to fire resistance which a suspended ceiling might provide as a protective membrane to loadbearing elements is determined using the procedure given in EN 13381-1. The fire resistance of loadbearing floors in conjunction with a suspended ceiling can also be assessed by using tests according to EN 1365-2.

This European Standard specifies a method for determining the fire resistance of air transfer grilles (ATG).
It is applicable to air transfer grilles intended for installation in building components (typically walls, floors or ceilings). The orientation of the installation of the air transfer grille can be vertical or horizontal.
The closing mechanism of the air transfer grille can come from expansion of material and/or from any mechanical or electrical closing device.
This test method is valid for fire resistant or fire resistant and smoke control air transfer grilles.
An additional test configuration is valid for fire resistant or fire resistant and smoke control air transfer grilles in applications where flame impingement is a risk during open state from start of fire (Annex A).
This test method evaluates the behaviour of the air transfer grille when exposed to the standard fire curve described in EN 1363-1 and the standard pressure described in EN 1363-1. It is not the intention of this test to provide quantitative information on the rate of leakage of smoke and/or hot gases or on the transmission or generation of fumes under fire conditions. Such phenomena are only to be noted in describing the general behaviour of test specimens during the test.
The rate of leakage of smoke at ambient temperature or at 200 °C as an optional requirement for ATG with declared smoke control will be confirmed in accordance with standard EN 1634-3.
This test method is not valid for determining the fire resistance of air transfer grilles that are used in ducts because ATG are considered as separating elements. The test method for ATG, used in ducts is described in the corresponding duct standards.
This test method is not valid for determining the fire resistance of a fire damper or a fire barrier connected to a duct on either or both sides because an ATG is tested as a fire-separating element on its own. Fire dampers are tested according to EN 1366-2. Non-mechanical fire barriers are tested according to EN 1366-12.
This test method is not valid for determining the fire resistance of air transfer grilles in fire doors, shutters and openable windows as specified in EN 1634-1 and EN 1364-2, because the deformation of fire doors, shutters and openable windows in fire conditions differs from the deformation of flexible/rigid walls. Moreover the location of thermocouples in the door standard is too specific to be handled in this standard.
All values given in this standard are nominal unless otherwise specified.

The measuring technique of the SBI (single burning item) test instrument is based on the observation that, in general, the heats of combustion per unit mass of oxygen consumed are approximately the same for most fuels commonly encountered in fires (Huggett [12]). The mass flow, together with the oxygen concentration in the extraction system, suffices to continuously calculate the amount of heat released. Some corrections can be introduced if CO2, CO and/or H2O are additionally measured.

This European Standard specifies a test and assessment method for determining the contribution made by fire protection systems to the fire resistance of structural steel beam I and H members in the horizontal plane containing openings in the web which may affect the structural performance of the beam. This European Standard applies to beams subject to 3 or 4 sided fire exposure.
For any beam with a single web opening or where the web openings are considered to be of small diameter in relation to the web depth the applicability of this European Standard needs to be determined by a structural engineer.
This European Standard applies to fire protection materials that have already been tested and assessed in accordance with EN 13381 4 or EN 13381-8. i.e. this European Standard cannot be used in isolation. Use of this European Standard requires the multi-temperature analysis (MTA) derived from EN 13381 4 or EN 13381 8 as the basis for determining thickness for beams with web openings. This MTA needs to be carried out on the web and bottom flange separately generating an elemental multi-temperature analysis (EMTA). The bottom flange EMTA may be used as the top flange EMTA when a beam is subject to 4 sided exposure.
This European Standard contains the fire test methodology, which specifies the tests which need to be carried out to provide data on the thermal characteristics of the fire protection system, when exposed to the standard temperature/time curve specified in EN 1363 1.
This European standard also contains the assessment, which prescribes how the analysis of the test data should be made and gives guidance on the procedures which should be undertaken.
The assessment procedure is used to establish:
a)    on the basis of the temperature data derived from testing unloaded steel sections, the thermal response of the fire protection system on cellular beams (the thermal performance);

This European Standard provides guidance and rules to notified bodies (for fire dampers) to allow them to produce/validate an extended field of application report for fire dampers. This standard identifies the parameters that affect the fire resistance of dampers. It also identifies the factors that need to be considered when deciding whether, or by how much, the parameter can be extended when contemplating the fire resistance performance of an untested, or untestable variation in the construction.
This European Standard explains the principles behind how a conclusion on the influence of specific parameters/constructional details relating to the relevant criteria (E,I,S) can be achieved.
This European Standard does not cover dampers used for smoke control.
This European Standard only applies to extended fields of application based on tests successfully undertaken to EN 1366-2. Only test reports that have a total test time where the criteria are fulfilled that is in excess of the required classification period by a margin of either 10 % or 12 min, whichever is the least, are to be considered. Each classification (E,I,S) is to be considered individually - consequently E (134 min achieved) may be extended, but EI (61 min achieved) may not be extended for a classification of EI60.
Additionally, leakage determined during such tests is to be at least 10 % below the leakage limits for E, or for E-S, dependent on classification achieved, given in EN 13501-3 before the EXAP rules can be applied. The 10 % below the leakage limits is to be fulfilled for the extended period in addition to the classification period.
By application of this European Standard, it should be possible to identify what specifications should be tested to maximize the field of application. Some information on test programmes is given for guidance purposes.

This European Standard specifies a test method for determining the contribution of fire protection systems to the fire resistance of structural concrete members, for instance slabs, floors, roofs and walls and which can include integral beams and columns. The concrete can be lightweight, normal weight or heavyweight concrete and of all strength classes (e.g. 20/25 to 50/60 for normal strength concrete and for high strength concrete 55/67 to 90/105). The member is to contain steel reinforcing bars.
The test method is applicable to all fire protection materials used for the protection of concrete members and includes sprayed materials, reactive coatings, cladding protection systems and multi-layer or composite fire protection materials, with or without a gap between the fire protection material and the concrete member
This European Standard specifies the tests which are to be carried out to determine the ability of the fire protection material to remain coherent and fixed to the concrete and to provide data on the temperature distribution throughout the protected concrete member, when exposed to the standard temperature time curve.
In special circumstances, where specified in national building regulations, there can be a need to subject the protection material to a smouldering curve. The test for this and the special circumstances for its use are detailed in Annex A.
The fire test methodology makes provision for the collection and presentation of data which can be used as direct input to the calculation of fire resistance of concrete members in accordance with the procedures given in EN 1992-1-2.
This European Standard also contains the assessment which prescribes how the analysis of the test data is to be made and gives guidance to the procedures by which interpolation is to be undertaken.
The limits of applicability of the results of the assessment arising from the fire test are defined together with permitted direct application of the results to different concrete structures, densities, strengths, thicknesses and production techniques over the range of thicknesses of the applied fire protection system tested.
The test method, the test results and the assessment method are not applicable to structural hollow concrete members.

This European Standard specifies a test method for determining the ability of a vertical protective membrane, when used as a fire resistant barrier, to contribute to the fire resistance (loadbearing capacity R) of loadbearing vertical structural building members fabricated from steel, concrete, steel/concrete composites or timber. The method described is applicable to any type of vertical protective membrane, which can be associated with a separate bracing membrane.
The vertical protective membrane can be either separated from or attached to the structural building member and is self-supporting. This test method is applicable to vertical protective membranes where there is a gap and a cavity between the vertical protective membrane and the structural building member, otherwise alternative test methods prEN 13381-3, EN 13381-4, EN 13381-6 or prEN 13381-7 should be used as appropriate.
This test method and assessment is not applicable to the following:
a) all situations where the cavity is to be used as a service or ventilation shaft;
b) all situations where the vertical protective membrane acts as a bracing membrane.
This European Standard contains the fire test which specifies the tests which shall be carried out whereby the vertical protective membrane together with the structural member to be protected is exposed to the specified fire. The fire exposure, to the standard temperature/time curve given in EN 1363-1, is applied to the side which would be exposed in practice.
The test method makes provision, through specified optional additional procedures, for the collection of data which can be used as direct input to the calculation of fire resistance according to the processes given in EN 1992-1-2, EN 1993-1-2, EN 1994-1-2 and EN 1995-1-2.
This European Standard also contains the assessment which provides information relative to the analysis of the test data and gives guidance for the interpretation of the results of the fire test, in terms of loadbearing capacity criteria of the protected vertical structural member.
The results of the fire test and the assessment can be applied, with certain defined provisions, to vertical structural building members which can be beams, columns or a combination of both and / or which could form part of a separating element or partition.
The limits of applicability of the results of the assessment arising from the fire test are defined, together with permitted direct application of the results to different structures, membranes and fittings.
In special circumstances, where specified in national building regulations, there can be a need to subject the protection material to a smouldering curve. The test for this and the special circumstances for its use are detailed in Annex B.
Tests should be carried out without additional combustible materials in the cavity.

This European Standard specifies a method for determining the fire resistance of parts of curtain walling and of the perimeter seal. It examines the fire resistance to internal and external fire exposure of:
-   the spandrel panel, i.e. downstand, upstand or a combination thereof, or
-   the perimeter seal, or
-   the fixing of the framing system (anchoring) used to attach the curtain walling to the floor element, or
-   combinations thereof.
Results from tests according to this standard form the basis for classification of curtain walling type A (see 3.3 for definition).
For curtain walling type B (see 3.4 for definition) results may be used to determine fire resistance of parts of a curtain walling to increase the field of application when previously tested to EN 1364 3. For intended classification EW and for corner/faceted specimens EN 1364 3 should be used.
This European Standard does not cover double skin façades, over-cladding systems and ventilated façade systems on external walls. It does not deal with the reaction to fire behaviour of curtain walling.
This standard is intended to be read in conjunction with EN 1363 1 and EN 1363 2 as well as EN 1364 3 for curtain walling type B.
NOTE   Annex A gives informative guidance on the principles of testing parts of curtain walling and the test method.

This European Standard specifies a method for determining the fire resistance of curtain walling full configuration.
This European Standard is used in conjunction with EN 1363 1.
NOTE   Annex B gives further information on the test method.
The test method is applicable to curtain walling type B (for definition see 3.4). The test is not appropriate for testing curtain walling type A (for definition see 3.3).
The fire resistance of curtain walling may be determined under internal or external exposure conditions. In the latter case the external fire exposure curve given in EN 1363 2 may be used, subject to deviating national regulations.
Tests on individual parts of a curtain walling (e.g. perimeter seal, infill panel or fixing of the framing system (anchoring) used to attach the curtain walling to the floor element) or systems with fire resistance requirements only to the spandrel area may be performed using EN 1364 4. For vertical linear gap seals, this part of the standard applies.

This European Standard specifies a method of testing the fire resistance of loadbearing walls. It is applicable to both internal and external walls. The fire resistance of external walls can be determined under internal or external exposure conditions.
The fire resistance performance of loadbearing walls is normally evaluated without perforations such as doors, glazing or fire resistant ducts. If it can be demonstrated that the design of the opening is such that load is not transmitted to the perforation, then the perforation need not be tested in the loaded condition. If perforations are to be included, the effects of these will need to be separately established.
This test method is not applicable to non-separating loadbearing walls which, in short widths, can be tested as columns to EN 1365-4.
This European Standard is used in conjunction with EN 1363-1:1999.

This European Standard specifies a test method for determining the contribution of fire protection systems to the fire resistance of structural concrete filled hollow steel columns. The concrete can be lightweight, normal-weight or heavyweight concrete, and of all the strength classes provided for in EN 1994-1-2. The use of a dry sand is considered to be an alternative, conservative approach to the use of wet concrete. A specification for dry sand is given in 5.6.3.
The method is applicable to all fire protection systems used for the protection of concrete filled hollow columns and includes sprayed fire protection, reactive coatings, cladding protection systems and multi-layer or composite fire protection materials.
If there is no hollow section data from EN 13381-4 or EN 13381-8, this European Standard cannot be used. For passive systems, this data can be derived using the Formula in Annex A of EN 13381-4:2002.  
Testing to this European Standard is not required if the fire protection thicknesses for hollow sections derived from EN 13381-4 or EN 13381-8 are to be used for concrete filled hollow sections.
The evaluation is designed to cover a range of thicknesses of the applied fire protection material, a range of steel sections, characterized by their diameters and wall thicknesses, a range of design temperatures and a range of valid fire protection classification periods.
The test method is applicable to fire protection systems which are intimately in contact with the structural column, or which include an airspace between the structural column and the protection system.
This European Standard specifies the fire tests which are carried out to determine the ability of the fire protection system to provide fire protection to composite columns. The tests produce data on the average steel temperatures of the composite column, when exposed to the time/temperature curve according to the procedures defined herein. This European Standard also provides the assessment procedure, which prescribes how the analysis of the test data should be made and gives guidance on the procedures by which interpolation is undertaken.
In special circumstances, where specified in national building regulations, there can be a need to subject reactive protection material to a smouldering curve. The test for this and the special circumstances for its use are detailed in EN 13381-8. This exposure, applicable to reactive fire protection materials, is used only in special circumstances (which are specified in the national building regulations of a member state of the European Union) and is therefore not intended to be mandatory for all fire protection materials applied to concrete filled hollow steel columns.
This European Standard ignores any contribution from the concrete to the structural capability of the hollow column and therefore only deals with thermal performance. The justification for using this approach is given in Annex B.
The fire test methodology makes provision for the collection and presentation of data which can be used as direct input to the calculation of fire resistance of concrete/steel composite members in accordance with the procedures given in EN 1994-1-2.
The limits of applicability of the results of the assessment arising from the fire test are defined together with permitted direct application of the results to different steel/concrete composite columns, steel types and thicknesses, concrete densities, strengths, thicknesses and production techniques over the range of thicknesses of the applied fire protection system tested.
This European Standard details the fire test procedures, which should be carried out to provide data on the thermal characteristics of the fire protection system, when exposed to the European Standard temperature/time curve specified in EN 1363-1.

This Technical Specification specifies four methods for determining the performance of roofs to external fire exposure. The four methods assess the performance of roofs under the following conditions:
a)   test 1 - with burning brands;
b)   test 2 - with burning brands and wind;
c)   test 3 - with burning brands, wind and supplementary radiant heat;
d)   test 4 - with two stages  incorporating burning brands, wind and supplementary radiant heat.
The tests assess the fire spread across the external surface of the roof, the fire spread within the roof (tests 1, 2 and 3), the fire penetration (tests 1, 3 and 4) and the production of flaming droplets or debris falling from the underside of the roof or from the exposed surface (tests 1, 3 and 4).
Tests 2 and 3 are not applicable to geometrically irregular roofs or roof mounted appliances, e.g. ventilators and roof lights.
NOTE   The four tests listed above do not imply any ranking order. Each test stands on its own without the possibility to substitute or exchange one for another.
