Euroclass fire classification

Euroclass fire ratings affect all of our sold substrates. The graph below maps the individual countries fire rating standards and classifications to the European EN 13501-1 standard. The Euroclass ratings range from A1 (no-combustibility) to F class (extremely flammable).

National ClassificationEuropean Classification (Euroclass)Comments
Non-combustableA1This comparison is derived from the definition of non-combustable materials in Approved Document B.
Limited CombustibilityA2, s3, d2 (or better)This comparison is derived from the definition of materials of limited combustibility in Approved Document B.

When a classification includes s3, d2, this means that there is no limit set for smoke production and/or flaming droplets/particles.
Class 0B, s3, d2 (or better)This comparison is derived from Table 10 in Approved Document B, which classifies linings.
Class 1C, s3, d2 (or better)This comparison is derived from Table 10 in Approved Document B, which classifies linings.
Class 2No equivalence is given in the Approved Documents of the Building Regulations.
Class 3D, s3, d2 (or better)This comparison is derived from Table 10 in Approved Document B, which classifies linings.
Class 4No equivalence is given in the Approved Documents of the Building Regulations.
  • B -
  • s3,
  • d2
  • The main part of the classification is its letter - A1, A2, B, C, D, E and F. A1 is the highest level of performance with F representing the lowest performance level

  • There is a smoke classification of S1, S2 or S3. S1 is the highest performance level and S3 is the lowest performance level.

  • There is a classification of flaming droplets of d0, d1 or d2. d0 is the highest performance level and d2 is the lowest performance level.

*The EN 13501-1 standard was prepared by the CEN Technical Committee CEN/TC 127 – Fire Safety in Buildings.
