LATERAL SPREAD OF FLAME TEST
LATERAL SPREAD OF FLAME TESTER (ISO 5658-2)
Our Lateral Flame Spread Testers offer precise measurement and analysis of the horizontal flame spread of materials. This allows for comprehensive evaluation of their fire behavior and helps assess their potential for fire propagation.
Realistic Fire Simulation:
The testers simulate realistic fire scenarios by exposing the test specimen to a controlled ignition source. This allows for accurate representation of horizontal flame spread and helps in understanding the fire performance of materials under specific conditions.
Flexible Test Parameters:
The Lateral Flame Spread Testers feature adjustable test parameters such as flame ignition time, sample size, and specimen orientation. This flexibility enables customized testing conditions to meet specific research or industry requirements.
Advanced Data Acquisition System:
Equipped with an advanced data acquisition system, our testers capture real-time data during flame spread tests. This data can be analyzed using specialized software, providing valuable insights into flame spread rates, burn lengths, and other critical fire behavior parameters.
Safety Features: Our testers are designed with safety in mind. They include safety measures such as flame arresters, emergency stop buttons, and protective enclosures to ensure operator safety during testing.
Our Lateral Flame Spread Testers comply with the following relevant international standards, ensuring accuracy and comparability of results:
- ISO 5658-2: Reaction to Fire Tests – Spread of Flame – Lateral Spread on Building and Transport Products in Vertical Configuration
- ASTM E1321: Standard Test Method for Determining Material Ignition and Flame Spread Properties
- IS 10810: Fire Tests – Surface Spread of Flame of Products
- BS 476-7: Fire Tests on Building Materials and Structures – Method of Test to Determine the Classification of the Surface Spread of Flame of Products
These standards provide guidelines for lateral flame spread testing procedures, calibration, and result interpretation, ensuring compatibility and reliability across different laboratories and industries.
Building and Construction Industry:
The Lateral Flame Spread Testers are extensively used to evaluate the horizontal flame spread characteristics of construction materials, such as wall linings, insulation materials, and claddings.
Our testers are valuable tools for assessing the flame spread behavior of interior materials used in vehicles, including seat covers, carpets, and dashboard components.
Textile and Upholstery Industry:
The testers help evaluate the flame spread properties of textiles, upholstery fabrics, and draperies, ensuring compliance with fire safety regulations.
Research and Development:
The testers facilitate in-depth studies on flame spread behavior, combustion properties, and fire safety of various materials. Researchers and engineers can use the data obtained to develop innovative fire-resistant materials and solutions.
