Brief summary of the Hungarian test method (MSZ 14800-6:2009) of fire propagation on building façades
Non-Profit Limited Liability Company for Quality Control and Innovation in Building, Szentendre, Hungary
When a fully developed fire from one compartment of a building spreads from a window to a façade, it is considered to be one of the most dangerous causes of fire propagation on façades. The Hungarian test method described in standard MSZ 14800-6:2009 focuses on determining the effect and risk evaluation of combustible façade materials by modelling a heat release of a compartment/office fire scenario in a model building with realistic construction and detail types. The method provides actual fire spread limit (Th) in minutes and an evaluation method as well.
