NFPA-268(12): Standard Test Method for Determining Ignitability of Exterior Wall Assemblies Using a Radiant Heat Energy Source
Accurately assess fire risk by testing exterior wall assemblies according to the methodology presented in the 2012 NFPA 268.

This standard offers a testing method to measure and describe the ignitability characteristics of exterior wall assemblies and their potential of contributing to fire growth under controlled laboratory conditions. It is intended to be used for code and other regulatory purposes, specification and design purposes, and research and development activities.

This fire test response standard details 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 comprehensive testing guidance.

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)
