|Item # 28913|
Make informed fire protection decisions. Use NFPA 289 to learn how individual fuel packages respond when exposed to various ignition sources.
Rely on NFPA 289: Standard Method of Fire Test for Individual Fuel Packages to determine the contribution of individual fuel packages to heat and smoke release in a room. Three types of fuel packages are covered: decorative objects; exhibit booths; and theater, motion picture, and television stage settings.
This Standard can be used by a performance-based design team to gather input data for a computer fire model to measure the expected fire development and smoke release in a building for various fuel packages.
Changes in the 2013 edition include:
- New requirements for alternate ignition sources, including type of ignition source and output requirements
- New equation for calculating heat release rates of gases
Testing laboratories and manufacturers will find the 2013 NFPA 289 a valuable source of solid information about fire test response characteristics. (Softbound, 18 pp., 2013)
