ASTM-84 Standard Test Method for Surface Burning Characteristics of Building Materials

ASTM E-84 measures the flame spread and smoke index which are considered the surface burning characteristics of a material. Depending on test results, materials can have classifications of Class A, B, or C according to NFPA , ANSI/NFPA No. 101, "Life Safety Code" , 2006 Edition, or IBC (International Building Code), 2006 Edition, Chapter 8, Interior Finishes, Section 803, if they pass any level of this standard.

NFPA 286 Standard Fire Test Method for evaluating contribution of wall interior finish to room fire growth

A test similar to NFPA 265 is NFPA 286. It was developed to test other wall finishes and is acceptable as an alternative to ASTM E 84 for both the IBC and NFPA 101. NFPA 101, however, permits the use of NFPA 286 as an alternative test method for textiles.

NFPA 265 Standard Fire Test Method for evaluating room fire growth contribution of textile coverings on full height panels and walls

The NFPA 265 Test involves applying a wall finish specimen to two walls. A 40kW flame is introduced for a period of 5 minutes and then increased to 150kW for 10 minutes. The specimen receives a pass/fail rating depending on whether or not flashover occurs.

EN13501-1European Norm Test for evaluating building products resistance to fire and contribution to fire growth

EN 13501 is a European equivalent of the British Standard BS 476 fire retardancy test developed in fire science and fire protection. It measures the products behavior mainly with regards to the combustion characteristics of flame spread, the rate of heat release, toxicity of smoke, its density and the final combustion result.

The Laboratory Report provides additional statistical data.
