Fire performance of external cladding systems:
Exova Warringtonfire Aus have now added the following testing capability to our fire testing portfolio in Dandenong Victoria: Fire Performance of External Cladding Systems in accordance with BS 8414 part 1 and 2 2015, adding to our experience with ISO 13785 part 1 and 2.

The National Construction Code (NCC) does not provide guidance for testing external wall materials and systems that are combustible. However, the recently developed standard AS 5113 provides a framework for the classification of external wall systems and refers to test methods BS 8414 part 1 and 2 2015, ISO 13785-2 and AS 1530.4-2005 Appendix B7.
