NFPA-260(13): Standard Methods of Tests and Classification System for Cigarette Ignition Resistance of Components of Upholstered Furniture
Test cigarette ignition propensity of upholstered furniture with the up-to-date guidelines in the 2013 NFPA 260.

Cigarette ignition of upholstered furniture is a major cause of life loss due to fire in the United States. NFPA 260: Standard Methods of Tests and Classification System for Cigarette Ignition Resistance of Components of Upholstered Furniture provides six laboratory testing procedures for evaluating the performance of upholstered furniture components when exposed to smoldering cigarettes.

Topics covered include:

  • Test apparatus
  • Test specimens
  • Test procedures
  • Cigarette resistance classifications
  • Safety precautions

In the 2013 NFPA 260, a new type of cigarette is specified for the ignition source as the cigarette traditionally used is no longer available. This document is essential for testing laboratories and manufacturers. (Softbound, 15 pp., 2013)
