Standards and guidelines on fire protection
In the event of fire, the Model Building Code (MBO) and specific administrative regulations prescribe fire-resistant or highly fire-retardant properties for defined building components for certain building classes. Drainage pipe systems play a supporting role here, because they are not only built in circumferentially, but also form the open link between individual building sections, which means that fires can spread across floors and through walls.
In Germany, the so-called Model Pipeline System Guideline (MLAR) must be taken into account for the concrete planning and installation of pipelines. In Germany there is also the Model Administrative Regulation Technical Building Regulations (MVV TB), which prescribes the requirements of a complete room closure to other floors in case of fire.
The test standard (Prüfnorm) DIN EN 1366-3 ultimately regulates how the safe fire protection of components for pipelines must be proven in tests.
