The Latest in Wallcoverings: Achieving Class C-s3-d2 with BS EN 13501-1 Standards

Updated: Dec 16, 2023

Navigating the evolving landscape of fireproofing wallcoverings is paramount in today's construction and design sectors. With the pivotal shift towards the BS EN 13501-1 standard, it's imperative for venues, contractors, establishments, and homeowners alike to be well-informed about these changes and their implications for safety and compliance.

Understanding BS EN 13501-1:

BS EN 13501-1 has become the go-to standard for assessing the fire performance of materials used in building construction. For wall linings in common areas to be compliant, they must now achieve a fire resistance rating of at least Class C-s3-d2. Let's decode that:

  • Class C: Moderate contribution to fire.

  • s3: Substantial smoke.

  • d2: Lots of flaming droplets.

Our Newest Projects:

In keeping with the evolution of industry standards, we've undertaken several projects that align with the latest fire regulations. Here are a few of our most recent endeavours:

22 Bishopsgate

This 'smart building' signifies the future of workspaces, prioritizing the health and well-being of its occupants. We meticulously treated their new wool/linen fabric panels, ensuring they adhered to the BS EN 13501-1 Class C-s3-d2 fire safety standard while upholding the modern aesthetic of the space.
