Exceeding Current Fire Test Standards

IFTI passes multiple CAN/ULC 9705 room corner burn tests over SPF, qualifying DC315 as equivalent to generic and prescriptive barriers over SPF.

Recently, ULC published the CAN/ULC-9705 (Full-scale Room Test for Surface Products), which is a Canadian adoption of the first edition of the ISO 9705 test. This standard specifies a test method that simulates a fire that, under well-ventilated conditions, starts in a corner of a small room with a single open doorway. The testing protocol is similar to the U.S. IBC Codes for Alternative to Thermal Barrier Testing, but in a much more extreme fire condition. The test is conducted for 20 minutes, or until flashover occurs, at heat outputs of 100 kW for 10 minutes followed by 300 kW for another 10 minutes.
