Understanding EN 1021-2: Upholstered Furniture Ignitability
1. Introduction to EN 1021-2:
EN 1021-2 is a standard developed by the European Committee for Standardization (CEN) that focuses on evaluating the ignitability of upholstered furniture. This standard is part of a comprehensive set of regulations aimed at ensuring the safety of furniture in terms of fire resistance. Specifically, EN 1021-2 addresses the ignition resistance of upholstered seating when subjected to a small flame.
2. Scope of EN 1021-2:
The scope of EN 1021-2 encompasses testing methods to assess the resistance of upholstered furniture to ignition by a small flame. This standard is applicable to various types of seating furniture, including chairs, sofas, and other upholstered items commonly found in residential and commercial settings.
3. Testing Conditions:
EN 1021-2 outlines specific conditions under which the test is conducted. The furniture is exposed to a small flame for a defined duration, and the resulting performance is evaluated based on criteria such as flame spread, duration of flaming, and damage to the test specimen.
Requirements of EN 1021-2
Understanding the requirements laid out in EN 1021-2 is crucial for both manufacturers and consumers. Compliance with these requirements ensures that upholstered furniture meets the necessary safety standards, contributing to overall fire safety.
1. Flame Application:
EN 1021-2 involves the application of a small flame to the furniture specimen. The standard defines the size and duration of the flame exposure, providing a controlled environment to assess the ignitability of the upholstery material.
2. Performance Criteria:
The performance of the furniture is evaluated based on parameters such as flame spread, duration of flaming, and damage caused by the ignition source. Meeting the specified criteria indicates a satisfactory level of resistance to ignition.
3. Repeat Testing:
EN 1021-2 recommends repeat testing to ensure consistency and reliability of results. This iterative approach is essential for confirming the fire resistance of upholstered furniture under various conditions.
