This fire-test-response standard covers the measurement of the relative fire characteristics of ex-posed underside of projections such as the horizontal soffits of roof eaves, floor projections, and exposed underfloor areas to direct flame impingement from a simulated fire originating outside the building. It is applicable to horizontal projections intended for installation on either combustible or noncombustible wall assemblies when applied as intended for use.
