Fire and Flammability of Furnishings and Contents of Buildings
An up-to-date review of furniture flammability and test methods for measuring the flammability of contents and furnishings of buildings. 14 peer-reviewed papers cover the development of fire tests and regulation on:
Wall and Floor Coverings
The papers reflect the involvement of ASTM, the National Fire Protection Association, the California Bureau of Home Furnishings, limited States organizations, European and international standards organizations, and various manufacturing trade associations.
