1.1 This specification covers the evaluation of the flame resistance of fabric and other pliable materials used in camping tentage.
1.2 It provides for certification of materials by suppliers and for labeling programs to caution the user against actions detrimental to flame-retardant treated fabrics. It also facilitates the identification of tentage as being constructed of flame-resistant materials, and it identifies the manufacturer.
1.3 This standard should be used to measure and describe the properties of materials, products, or assemblies in response to heat and flame under controlled laboratory conditions and should not be used to describe or appraise the fire hazard or fire risk of materials, products, or assemblies under actual fire conditions. However, results of this test may be used as elements of a fire risk assessment which takes into account all of the factors which are pertinent to an assessment of the fire hazard of a particular end use.
1.4 The following precautionary caveat pertains only to the test method portion, Sections 8 and 9, of this specification:
1.5 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety problems, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
