Installation & Care
In rail vehicles, buses, and ships, the subject of fire protection and passenger safety is of paramount importance.
In the case of fires in trains, ships, or buses, it is not only the spread of flames itself, but above all the build up of smoke and gas that poses a great danger to your passengers. Many materials contain substances that release hazardous gases in the event of a fire. nora floor coverings are first of all highly flame-retardant according to EN 13 501. Furthermore they are classified as fire-toxicologically safe according to the German standard DIN 53 436, which means that they have only a minimal toxicity to combustion gases.
There are special standards and requirements for fire protection in local and long-distance traffic and on ships to ensure passenger safety. Preventive fire protection is made possible through the selection of the right fire-resistant materials. nora floor coverings meet the high requirements of most of the international fire protection regulations (EN 45545, DIN 5510-2, BS 6853, NF F 16-101, NFPA 130, UIC 564-2/12, IMO).
1) nora floor coverings are highly flame retardant according to European standard EN 13 501.
2) The decomposition effluents from nora coverings are non toxic according to the German standard DIN 53 436.
3) EN 45545, DIN 5510-2, BS 6853, NF F 16-101, NFPA 130, UIC 564-2/12, IMO.
