EN 13501-1 standards

This is a European testing standard for building products, fire classification of construction products and building elements.

Building material and classified according to their contribution to a fire.

Not only are fire properties considered, but also smoke emissions and the possible formation of burning drips.

The reaction to fire properties of powder coated aluminium are A2-s1, d0 which means it is classified as having no or negligible contribution to the fire. In addition, production little or no smoke, and no burning droplets or particles.


CWCT approved

CWCT is a publisher of standards and guidance on corrosion, intrusion, fenestration, weather and fire resistance, acoustic and impact performance, of building envelopes, façades, cladding and glazing.

CWCT sequence B tests the Air-Permeability, water tightness, wind resistance, water penetration and impact resistance, ensuring the full system performs physically and the maintenance and servicing can be done safely.


Case Study

Eltherington carried out a full EN13501 fire test and project specific CWCT test for the rainscreen façade on this award winning Landmark project.
