This fire-test-response standard covers the measurement of the relative fire characteristics of ex-posed underside of both open and closed projections such as horizontal soffits and extended, open roof eaves, floor projections, and exposed under-floor areas to direct flame impingement from a simulated fire originating outside the building. It is applicable to horizontal projections intended for installation on ei-ther combustible or noncombustible wall assemblies when applied as intended for use.(destroyed, damaged and saved) have shown that direct flame contact has resulted in ignitions of buildings in wildfire prone and urban areas.
