Fire Safety Standards flame resistant textiles

EN 13773

European norm: Curtains and Drapes
The fabric is exposed to a constant, approximately 5 cm high flame, at first one, then two, then three up for up to 20 seconds. The afterflame on the fabric may never last longer than 5 seconds and the flames may not exceed a specified height. Dripping according to the old Austria norm is automatically tested at the same time. Smoldering is only required for Austria and is tested separately.

EN 1021 Part 1 + 2

European norm: upholstery fabrics
Is tested on the upholstery.

Austrian Norm B 3825

Austrian norm for upholstery fabrics.
Is tested on the upholstery.
In addition, dripping and smoldering during burn-off is tested according to Austrian norm 3800.

Important: fire safety for textiles is regulated nationally, which means that in Austria, only textiles tested according to Austrian norms are considered flame resistant. Foreign certificates, for example from Germany, Italy or France, are not valid in Austria. This is why such fabrics cannot be classified as flame resistant. We ask for your special attention to this. Caution – possible liability!
