Fire Classification Table
Class Performance Description Fire Scenario and Heat Attack Examples of Products
A1 No contribution to fire Fully developed fire in a room / At least 60kW/m2 Products of natural stone, concrete, bricks, ceramic, glass, steel and many metallic products
A2 No contribution to fire Fully developed fire in a room / At least 60kW/m2 Products similar to those of class A1, including small amounts of organic compounds
B Very limited contribution to fire Single burning item in a room / 40kW/m2 on a limited area Gypsum boards with different (thin) surface linings and fire retardant wood products
C Limited contribution to fire Single burning item in a room / 40kW/m2 on a limited area Phenolic foam, gypsum boards with different surface linings (thicker than in Class B)
