    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    1.1This fire-test-response test method is designed for use to determine various fire-test-response characteristics, including ignitability and heat release rate, from composites of mattresses or furniture, or correctional facilities, which have been vandalized in a prescribed manner to expose the filling material, by using a bench scale oxygen consumption calorimeter.

    1.2This test method provides for measurements of the time to sustained flaming, heat release rate, peak and total heat release, and effective heat of combustion at a constant radiant initial test heat flux of 35 kW/m2. See 5.7 for limitations.

    1.3The apparatus used in this test method is also capable of determining heat release data at different initial test heat fluxes.

    1.4The specimen is oriented horizontally and a spark ignition source is used.

    1.5All fire-test-response characteristics are determined using the apparatus and the procedures described in Test Method E1354.

    1.6The tests are done on bench-scale specimens combining the mattress or furniture outer layer components. Frame elements are not included.

    1.7The vandalism is simulated by causing a prescribed cut on the outer layer of the composite, deep enough to expose the filling material to the incident radiation.

    1.8The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.

    1.9This 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.

    1.10This 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. For specific safety precautions, see Section 7.

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