BS EN 45545-2 Certification

At Silver Fox we recognise just how important quality and performance standards are, that’s why our products and solutions are always independently tested to the highest specifications.

Our best-selling Yellow Fox-Flo® gained BS EN 45545-2 Certification in 2017.

Part two of the European standard; BS EN 45545-2 defines tighter requirements for the fire behaviour of materials and components including cables and cable Identification, ensuring necessary consistent safety standards are set across Europe’s railways.

The system has been prepared by Technical Committee CEN/TC 256 “Railway applications” on behalf of the European Commission and is based on the requirements of the EU Directive 2008/57/EC.

BS EN 45545-2 classifies all material on board in different groups, which must fulfil specific “Requirement Sets” which often include several test methods.

Some test methods include:

  • TO1 Oxygen Index
  • 03 Flue gas density
  • T12 Smoke toxicity
