Why Are Fire Resistant Notice Boards Important?
Consider fire resistant notice boards when creating or updating office, school or construction spaces.
Do you know the highest rating for fire safety notice boards? Studies show that many hospitals, community centres and schools are still using Class E rated notice boards, which are made from a material that only meets the lowest European Safety Standard. This has led to many organisations to review their notice boards & display boards to ensure they meet the highest notice board fire rating.

Highest Fire Rating: European Standards Class B
The latest European fire regulations (EN13501-1:2007+A1:2009 Class B) are met by specially designed and tested Class B fire-resistant notice boards. Corridors, hallways, stairways, lobbies, classrooms, escape route and building exits are critical areas for displaying fire safety notice boards.
BS Class 1
British Standard BS476 Part 7, Class 1 has to be met by a notice board before it can be class as Class 1 fire-resistant. Areas where the risk of fire is minimal – such as classrooms and offices – can use these boards safely, as they have fire-resistant material covering and surface. All of our home-brand fabric Magiboards notice boards are rated to BS476 Part 7, Class 1.
To legally mount notice boards in any escape route or hallway, your notice boards have to comply with BSEN13501:2002 and BS476 Part 6 & 7 reaction to flame test. Magiboards fire resistant notice boards have been designed and treated to comply with all necessary testing to allow for safe installation in stairwells, school hallways, public areas and entrances, and meet the required European and British Standards.
