Shadbolt can provide veneered wall and ceiling panels to meet the flame spread restriction requirements of:

UK Class 0 or Class 1 to BS 476 Parts 6 and 7, or
European Class C to BS EN 13501-1.
Click on either of these for more information.

The National and European classifications are not automatically equivalent. Products cannot claim a particular Class unless tested to the relevant standard.
Shadbolt panel performance is backed by test evidence to the appropriate standard.

Regulations requirements
In order to reduce the risk of internal fire spread, UK and European building regulations restrict the flame spread or reaction to fire performance of internal surfaces of walls and ceilings. Surfaces are classified according to the results of standard tests.

Under current UK Building Regulations Approved Document B2, performance testing and classification to either the National standardBS 476 or to the European standard BS EN 13501-1is permitted.
At some time in the future it is anticipated that BS 476 will be withdrawn and only the European standard will be accepted.
