    2013 Edition

    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)
