Fire resistance tests. Alternative and additional procedures

Status : Confirmed, Current   Published : November 1999



BS EN 1363-2:1999 specifies alternative heating conditions and other procedures that may need to be adopted under special circumstances. This standard shall be read in conjunction with EN 1363-1.

Details of the alternative hydrocarbon, slow heating and external fire exposure heating curves and the additional impact test and measurement of radiation procedures are included within this standard.  Within the appropriate clause for each procedure is given an explanation as to why it may be necessary.

Unless one of the alternative heating regimes is specifically required, the standard temperature-time curve given in EN 1363-1 shall be used. Similarly, the impact test and measurement of radiation shall only be undertaken when they are specifically requested.
