    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    1.1 This is a fire-test-response standard.

    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    1.1This is a fire-test-response standard.

    1.2This test method provides a means of determining the burning behavior of mattresses used in public occupancies by measuring specific fire test responses when the test specimen, a mattress or mattress with foundation, is subjected to a specified flaming ignition source under well ventilated conditions.

    1.3This is a test method for mattresses or mattresses with foundations.

    1.4Test data are obtained describing the burning behavior, following application of a specific ignition source, from ignition until all burning has ceased, a period of 1 h has elapsed, or flashover appears inevitable.

    1.5This test method does not provide information on the fire performance of mattresses under fire conditions other than those specified in this test method. In particular, this test method does not apply to smoldering ignition by cigarettes. See 5.12 for further information.

    1.6The rate of heat release of burning test specimen is measured by an oxygen consumption method. See 5.12.4 for further information.

    1.7Other measurements are the production of light-obscuring smoke and the concentrations of certain toxic gas species in the combustion gases. See 5.12.5 for further information.

    1.8The burning behavior is documented visually by photographic or video recordings.

    1.9Use the SI system of units in referee decisions; see IEEE/ASTM SI-10. The units given in parentheses are for information only.

    1.10This standard is used to measure and describe the response of materials, products, or assemblies to heat and flame under controlled conditions, but does not by itself incorporate all factors required for fire hazard or fire risk assessment of the materials, products or assemblies under actual fire conditions

    1.11Fire testing is inherently hazardous. Adequate safeguards for personnel and property shall be employed in conducting these tests.

    1.12This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
