NFPA-289-2013: Standard Method of Fire Test for Individual Fuel Packages

$38.50

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)
