EN45545-2:2013

EN 45545-2 defines a classification system that specifies requirements for fire behavior of materials and products used in trains.
The EN 45545-2 rail Standard involves an evaluation of the following fire performance tests for railway rolling stock walls and floors.

According to Classification:
EN 13501-1:2007+A1:2009 and EN 13501-2:2007+A1:2009

According to fire testing:
EN 13823 (SBI) and EN 14135:2004

The certification covers the following Operating Conditions (OC)

OC 1: Vehicles for operation on infrastructure (tunnel or elevated
structures < 1km in length) where railway vehicles may be stopped
withminimum delay, and where a safe area can always be reached immediately.

OC 2: Vehicles for operation on underground sections, tunnels and/or
elevated structures (< 5 km in length), with side evacuation availableand
where there are stations or rescue stations that offer a place of
safety to passengers, reachable within a short running time 4min (min
speed 80 km/h).

OC 3Vehicles for operation on underground sections, tunnels and/orelevated
structures (> 5 km in length), with side evacuation available
and where there are stations or rescue stations that offer a place of
safety to passengers, reachable within a long running time 15min (min
speed 80 km/h).

OC 4: Vehicles for operation on underground sections, tunnels and/or
elevated structures (< 5 km in length), without side evacuation available
and where there are stations or rescue stations that offer a place ofsafety
to passengers, reachable within a short running time 4min (min
speed 80 km/h).
