  Fire Testing to Railway Components---EU Standard: CEN/TS EN 45545:2013


1. Standard— CEN/TS EN 45545:2013 Fire Testing to Railway Components

1. CEN/TS EN 45545-2: Railway applications - Fire protection of railway vehicles-Part 2: Requirement for fire behaviour of materials and components.



2. Standard Brief-- CEN/TS EN 45545:2013 Fire Testing to Railway Components

Railway rolling stock material for fire testing standards, national testing standards and methods are different, the EU launched a program called Firestarr Project to study and establish a set of railway vehicles, materials, flammability, flame spread rate, heat release the amount of smoke emission and toxicity testing.

According to vehicle material end-use and fire risks, will be divided into R1-R26. the 26 different categories.


Fire hazard levels (HL1 to HL4) result from different dwell times and are related to operation and design categories



Design categories

All vehicles are classified due to their design as follows:

-A: automatic vehicles having no emergency trained staff on board;

-D: double decked vehicles;

-S: sleeping and couchette cars;

-N: all other vehicle

These design categories generate fire scenarios which lead to different dwell times.
