    Promote better fire safety. To evaluate thermal barriers accurately, conduct fire tests according to the 2017 edition of NFPA 275.

    With updated references to codes and standards that reflect the latest building industry and public fire safety needs, NFPA 275: Standard Method of Fire Tests for the Evaluation of Thermal Barriers presents a method for qualifying the fire performance of thermal barriers to reduce the probability of ignition or delay its occurrence.
