Matresses - Burning behaviour - Full scale test (NT TR 602)

NT TR 602

  • A new test method for testing of fire properties of mattresses is proposed. The method is intended to evaluate the full scale burning behaviour of a complete mattress or bed system when exposed to a flaming ignition source. Fire performance criteria, for mattresses used in public occupancies, are proposed.

Modelling of the radiative feedback from the flames in cone calorimeter (NT TR 540)

NT TR 540

  • The ignition and combustion properties of building materials are often studied using the Cone Calorimeter (ISO5660:1993, NT Fire 048:1993), where the sample is heated by a temporally and spatially constant incident radiative heat flux. After ignition, however, the heat transfer characteristics are changed due to the flame radiation and convection.

Nordic Round Robin and Investigation on IMO Resolution A 653 (16) (NT TR 529)

NT TR 529

  • This Nordtest Project critically examines the deviations from the IMO resolution A.653 (16) method, which the participating laboratories either uses or has been using, that being deviations from: the equipment, the procedures or the interpretation of data. These deviations are in many cases a result on the imprecise and equivocal description of the method described in the IMO resolution A.653 (16) in FTP Code.

Accelerated weathering of fire-Retardant treated wood for fire testing (NT FIRE 053)


  • The durability of a fire-retardant treatment of wood under exposure to accelerated weathering is covered by this standard. It is intended for fire-retardant treatment of wood by pressure impregnation, rather than simply by surface coating.
