1.    Combustibility (G)

  • G1 - combustible

  • G2 - moderate combustible

  • G3 - normal combustible

  • G4 - most combustible

2.    Flammability (B)

  • B1 - hard inflammable

  • B2 - moderate inflammable

  • B3 - easy   inflammable

3.    Ability to spread flame over the surface (RP)

  • RP1 - non-spread

  • RP2 - weakly spread

  • RP3 - moderately spread

  • RP4 – highly spread

4.    Smoke-forming ability (D)

  • D1 - low smoke generation capacity

  • D2 - moderate smoke generation capacity

  • D3 - moderate smoke generation capacity

5.    Toxic combustion products (T)

These characteristics are evaluated during the test of the samples. After the test, Fire Safety certificate indicating the class of fire hazard is issued.

Usually, when building the public places of mass gathering (school, hotel, hospital etc.) materials with high fire hazard properties (KM0, KM1) are used.
