Description / Abstract:

This standard describes a test method for determining the contribution of textile or expanded vinyl wall coverings to room fire growth during specified fire exposure conditions. 

This test method shall be used to evaluate the flammability characteristics of textile or expanded vinyl wall coverings where such materials constitute the exposed interior surfaces of buildings and demountable, relocatable, full height partitions used in open building interiors. 

This test method shall not be used to evaluate the fire resistance of assemblies, nor shall it be used to evaluate the effect of fires originating within a wall assembly. 

This test method shall not be used for the evaluation of floor or ceiling finishes. 

This test method shall not apply to fabric-covered, lower-than-ceiling-height, freestanding, prefabricated panel furniture systems.

Purpose

This test method shall measure certain fire performance characteristics of textile or expanded vinyl wall covering materials in an enclosure under specified fire exposure conditions.

This test method shall determine the potential extent to which the textile or expanded vinyl wall covering materials contribute to fire growth in a room and the potential for fire spread beyond the room under the particular conditions simulated.
