This test method provides a means of accurately measuring how resistant to ignition upholstered furniture mock-ups are when exposed to smoldering cigarettes under specified conditions.
Mock-up testing is used in assessing the relative resistance to continuing combustion of individual materials used in furniture, such as cover fabrics, filling materials, and welt tape, in realistic combinations and in an ideal geometric arrangement of the seat cushions, back, and arms of furniture items.
