Fire tests for furniture - Part 2. Methods of test for the ignitability of upholstered composites for seating by flaming sources

Executive summary

Methods of test for assessing the ignitability of upholstered composites for seating by flaming sources.

Abstract

This Part of BS 5852 describes methods of test for assessing the ignitability of upholstered composites for seating, e.g. covers and filling, when subjected to flaming sources of thermal output ranging from that just greater than from a burning match up to that approximating to four double sheets of full size newspaper, as might be applied accidentally in the use of upholstered seats. It does not necessarily cover ignition caused by deliberate acts of vandalism.

Possible ways in which this British Standard can be used to indicate the potential ignitability of components in conjunction with other specified materials or where more specific information is required about design features are given in appendix A.

History and long abstract

The British Standard is a development of parts of DD 58, which is withdrawn.

This standard includes the following cross references:

BS 3016, BS 4250, BS 5852.
