Anna Rita de Corso, SUPSI Switzerland, also presented comparison between small and larger scale fire testing results, comparing the lab’s specifically developed “mini SBI” (Single Burning Item) test to the standard SBI (EN13823).

The “mini SBI” uses <0.4m2 of material in a room corner (standard SBI 2.25m2). Correlation to construction material Euroclasses is demonstrated. Further work is underway to improve the reliability of the “mini SBI” by adapting specimen mounting, burner, modelling.
