How do I know a Notice Board is Fire Rated?
Notice boards are only fire rated if the merchant can issue a certificate to demonstrate this. Such certificates will exclusively apply to the exact colour notice board tested.
Magiboards fire safety notice boards are fire rated to BS EN13501 Class B, which means the notice board material is inflammable, making our boards compliant to European standards.
Wood frames on a notice board are never fire rated. The backboard and material covering may be, but the total board will not meet fire safety regulations. An aluminium frame is always recommended for fire safety notice boards.

They are part of the furniture and fittings and not the wall linings, so any reference to Building Regulations 2000 Approved Document B Volume 2 – Buildings Other than Dwelling Houses 2006 Edition amended 2007 is not relevant to notice boards.
