BS EN ISO 12952-1:2010 Textiles. Assessment of the ignitability of bedding items. Ignition source. Smouldering cigarette

Fires are sometimes caused by the ignition of bedding items by smokers' materials. The ignitability of bedding items by a smouldering cigarette or a small open flame is therefore an important feature in the assessment of the risk of fire.

It cannot be assumed that protection against a smouldering ignition source will automatically give protection against flaming ignition. Users of this part of ISO 12952 should therefore consider the need to submit test specimens to both cigarette and flaming ignition tests.

BS EN ISO 12952-1 describes test methods with a smouldering cigarette as the ignition source. Testing against the ignition source of a small open flame is covered in ISO 12952-2.

BS EN ISO 12952-1 can be used for the assessment of ignitability of individual items of bedding and of composite arrangements.

BS EN ISO 12952-1 specifies test methods for assessing the ignitability of all bedding items when
subjected to a smouldering cigarette.

BS EN ISO 12952-1 applies to bedding items, which can normally be placed on a mattress, for example:

Mattress covers
Underlays
Incontinence sheets and pads
Sheets
Blankets
Electric blankets
Quilts (duvets) and covers
Pillows (whatever the filling) and bolsters
Pillowcases.

BS EN ISO 12952-1does not apply to mattresses, bed bases and mattress pads.
