NFPA 265: Standard Methods of Fire Tests for Evaluating Room Fire Growth Contribution of Textile or Expanded Vinyl Wall Coverings on Full Height Panels and Walls describes a method for determining the contribution of textile wall coverings to room fire growth during specified fire exposure conditions. This method is used to:

  • Evaluate the flammability characteristics of textile wall coverings that constitute the exposed interior surfaces of buildings
  • Measure certain fire performance characteristics of textile wall covering materials in an enclosure under specified fire exposure conditions
  • Determine the potential extent to which the textile wall covering materials contribute to fire growth in a room, and the potential for fire spread beyond the room

Only the 2011 edition includes:

  • New methods for expanded vinyl wall coverings
  • New definition of ''textile''
  • Revisions to specimen mounting criteria

Bring your knowledge in line with the 2011 NFPA 265 to make sure you're prepared to maximize safety with the latest fire safety testing rules for textile coverings. (Softbound, 20 pp., 2011)
