Accurately assess fire risk by testing exterior wall assemblies according to the methodology presented in the 2012 NFPA 268.
Revised to include updated references, the 2012 NFPA 268: Standard Test Method for Determining Ignitability of Exterior Wall Assemblies Using a Radiant Heat Energy Source describes a method to determine the propensity of ignition of exterior wall assemblies from exposure to 12.5 kW /m2 radiant heat in the presence of a pilot ignition source.
From instrumentation and documentation to safety precautions and calibration, this document provides testing laboratories and manufacturers with comprehensive testing guidance. (Softbound, Approx. 17 pp., 2012)
