Fire testing of floor coverings

DBI offers fire testing of carpets, linoleum, wooden floors etc. in accordance with the Construction Product Directive regulations. You can also have classification reports - the basis for CE marking - prepared.

The various building authorities in European countries stipulate different requirements for which specific fire classification floor coverings should have. DBI will be happy to advise you on a testing procedure that will enable you to sell your floor coverings in the desired market.

DBI Certification can issue CE approval for the CE labelling of floor coverings on the basis of the classification report.

DBI advises
The CE marking of floor coverings always requires a sampling report which documents how the tested products were taken from the production process. For some classes of fire, the samples have to be taken by an impartial third party.

Therefore, it is a good idea to contact DBI before a sample is taken so that all the requirements for sampling are complied with. span>
