Are you an architect, designer, engineer, façade consultant or specifier seeking more information about NFPA 285?
Our fire testing experts are here to explain more about NFPA 285 façade testing which is a test standard that measures the flammability characteristics of modern exterior wall assemblies. The performance of exterior walls during fire exposure is a critical element of building construction.
What will I learn?
The presentation will cover:
The history of the standards relating to International Building Codes
The standard/regulations and relevance of the test
A tour of the equipment
Additionally, why rising energy standards are driving take up for the test
