Product tests include surface spread of flame
to ASTM E 84 and BS 476: Part 7 standards - with items being rated from Class 1 to Class 4, the former being the best result achievable - and combustibility (fire propagation) to ASTM E 119 and BS 476: Part 6 standards.
The UV Colour range offers outstanding flame retardancy of Class 0, providing much needed prevention of surface spread of flame

The steel inner and outer facings have Class 1 surface spread of flame

The Degafloor Firesafe product conforms to BS476 Part 6: fire propagation (class O) and BS476 Part 7: surface spread of flame
(class 1) and is ideal for areas where health and safety is paramount, says the company.
