Burn Test: Televisions Part I
An independent TV fire test conducted by a fire brigade in the Netherlands. It is estimated that on yearly basis (in Europe) 200 people die and more than 2,000 people become seriously injured by a TV fire.
Burn Test: Televisions Part II
Comparative burning test performed by the Berlin Fire Brigade in 2005.
Burn Test: Plastic Foam
Burning test of plastic foam samples (PUR) used for insulation material, as well as in upholstered furniture or in cars, trains and planes seats.
Burn Test: Furniture Part I
Comparative burning test of fire resistant and non-fire resistant upholstered furniture marketed in Europe, performed by the Berlin Fire Brigade.  Also features a room flashover experiment performed by the Swedish SP laboratory.
Burn Test: Furniture Part II
Test performed by the Amsterdam fire brigade in January 2010 for the Dutch TV show "Kassa". A standard couch is ignited by a small flame (candle). Four minutes after ignition, flashover point is reached, and it is too late for the rescue services to act.
Burn Test: Household Room
Room burning test performed by the Swedish "SP" laboratory. Reveals gap between Euroclass B and Euroclass D certified building materials.
Burn Test: Plastic with Flame Retardants
This Underwriters Laboratories test shows the effectiveness of flame retardants when used to treat polyamide 6,6 plastic.
Burn Test: Plastic without Flame Retardants
This video is a continuation of the previous Underwriters Laboratories test demonstrating the flammability of the same plastic without flame retardants.
