Fire Resistance Policy
Ceramic tiles are produced using inert materials and are fired to temperatures in excess of 1200°C. As ceramic tiles are inert and non-combustible, they are considered fire resistant and will not contribute to fire.
Further to this the European Standard EN14411:2012 (E) Table J.1 clause “m”, recognises that “ceramic is considered as material of known and stable performance with respect to the reaction to fire performance as it does not consist of any organic material. As such, it does not contribute to fire and it may be considered without the need for testing (CWT- classification without testing) as the Class A1 material“. Additionally the European Standard EN 13501-1 recognises that “ceramic materials are non-combustible and fireproof at any oxygen concentration“.
As a responsible ceramic tile manufacturer, Johnson tiles undertakes rigorous testing to ensure quality and safety of all our products. This is to say, as our products are 100% organic material and non-combustible, they will not contribute to combustion or toxic gases in the event of a fire, giving you full confidence and peace of mind when using our products in your project.
