BS ISO 3009:2003
This standard BS ISO 3009:2003 Fire resistance tests. Elements of building construction. Glazed elements is classified in these ICS categories:
- 13.220.50 Fire-resistance of building materials and elements
- 81.040.20 Glass in building
This International Standard provides a test method for determining and assessing the fire resistance performance of both insulated and uninsulated glazed elements of building construction, when those elements are exposed to heating on one face. It is applicable to glazed separating elements such as screens, walls of glass blocks and other light-transmitting assemblies used in vertical, inclined or horizontal orientations, and to all separating elements containing glazing intended to be assessed in accordance with ISO 834-1 — except for doors and shutter assemblies, which are intended to be tested in accordance with ISO 3008. It is directly applicable to planar elements, but also gives guidance on the testing of non-planar elements such as pyramids.
The application of the test results to other, untested, forms of construction is acceptable only when the construction complies with the field of direct application given in this International Standard or when it is subjected to a field of extended application analysis in accordance with ISO/TR 12470.
NOTE Since ISO/TR 12470 gives only general guidelines, specific extended application analyses are to be performed only by persons expert in fire-resistant constructions.
