Fire Rated Boards
TeacherBoards have the largest range of fire-retardant notice boards on the market because every notice board we make in our Gloucestershire Factory is manufactured using a Sundeala core. Sundeala is naturally fire retardant to BS EN 13501-1 Class D and Sundeala FR has additional fire resistance built in to enhance it to BS EN 13501-1 Class B for notice boards that are being installed in fire-critical areas such as corridors, receptions, science labs and circulation spaces.
Protected fire escape routes and stairwells require special consideration for notice boards and display boards so if you intend to put notice boards, even covered tamperproofs in these areas, please discuss this with us first.
We know that many people are unsure about the standard that wall-fixed notice boards need to meet, so please contact one of our expert team on the online chat, by phone or by email if you have any questions at all about notice board and pin board fire compliance – we are more than happy to talk you through it or even take a look at your building plans.
For your reassurance, all the boards we manufacture comply with the 2019 update to Approved Document B (vols 1 & 2) fire regulations for buildings and we test all our notice boards using the European harmonised standard of 13501-1 so you do not need to be concerned about Class 1 boards that only have fire rated fabric.Our fire-resistant notice boards are perfect for schools, student accommodation and offices where low smoke and zero flaming droplets in fire escape routes are vital for safely evacuating a building
