    Work Item: ASTM WK42159 - New Test Method for Flammability and Resistance of Eaves and Horizontal Projections to Fire Penetration Multilevel

    (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 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.


    Keywords
