CPR & NEN 8012
The basis of the fire classification are agreements that have been made about the test methods. As a result, every product family of every cable manufacturer is tested for fire behavior in the same way. In addition, the test results are validated by a notified body specified in the product declaration of performance (DoP).
- Fire tests for every product family
- According to new defined CPR test methods
- Notified body validation in DoP
- Results lead to classification in a fire class
Fire propagation, heat release, smoke development, falling burning particles and corrosiveness/acidity influence the fire classification. The difference in smoke development between the halogen-containing (PVC) installation cable on the right and the halogen-free cable on the left has a lot of influence on the CPR fire classification. Go to cable products to view the new product families per fire class.
