DESCRIPTION

BS EN 16856:2020


This standard BS EN 16856:2020 Portable aerosol dispensers for fire extinguishing purposes is classified in these ICS categories:
  • 13.220.10 Fire-fighting

This document specifies the requirements for non-refillable portable aerosol dispensers for fire extinguishing purposes.

It supplements the characteristics, performance and test methods for extinguishing aerosol dispensers for fire extinguishing purposes, in addition to the requirements of the Directive 75/324/EEC. Requirements in this document are specified for products containing less than 1 kg or 1 l of extinguishing media, which can be expelled by the action of internal pressure and are intended to extinguish test fires of type A + B, or type A + F, or type A + B + F classes of EN 2. These extinguishing aerosol dispensers are intended to be used by untrained persons for domestic applications. They are not intended to be used on gas fires (class C) and metal fires (class D).

Requirements are specified for minimum performance in Annex I for extinguishing test fires of type A, type B and type F classes of EN 2, as appropriate.

Annex A gives the conditioning to be applied to extinguishing aerosol dispensers prior to testing as described in Annex B to Annex K.
