ASTM WK37414

    Work Item: ASTM WK37414 - New Test Method for Flammability and Resistance of Eaves and Horizontal Projections to Fire Penetration

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Developed by Subcommittee: E05.14 | Committee E05 | Contact Staff Manager

    1. Scope

    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.


    eave; exterior horizontal projection covering; fire resistance; fire-test response characteristic; soffit

    The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.
