BSI - BS 7176
Specification for resistance to ignition of upholstered furniture for non-domestic seating by testing composites
|Publication Date:||31 August 2007|
|ICS Code (Furniture):||97.140|
This British Standard specifies requirements for the resistance to ignition of upholstered furniture used for seating when tested in accordance with BS 5852, BS EN 1021-1 or BS EN 1021-2, as appropriate. The levels of ignition resistance have been set after careful consideration of the fire risk of the particular end-use environment involved. These levels do not necessarily reflect the behaviour of the upholstered seating in a fully developed fire.
Upholstered seating for domestic use and transport is not covered by this standard.
NOTE Guidance on the applicability of hazard categories to particular premises is given in the Notes to Table 1.
