Radiant Panel Flame Spread Apparatus

Radiant Panel Flame Spread Apparatus

Welcome to FNA Equipments, your trusted provider of high-quality Fire Propagation Testers designed for fire safety evaluations. Our testers are specifically engineered to meet the requirements of ASTM E162, a recognized standard for assessing the fire propagation characteristics of materials.
The Fire Propagation Tester plays a crucial role in evaluating the fire performance of materials by measuring their ability to resist flame spread under controlled conditions. It provides valuable data on the material’s surface flammability and its potential for fire propagation.


  • ASTM E162 Compliance: Our Fire Propagation Testers fully comply with the requirements of ASTM E162, ensuring accurate and standardized assessment of flame spread and fire propagation. The apparatus is designed to meet the specific criteria outlined in the standard for measuring surface flammability.
  • Realistic Fire Scenario Simulation: The tester replicates realistic fire scenarios by subjecting the test specimen to controlled ignition and flame exposure. This allows for the measurement and evaluation of the material’s resistance to flame spread and fire propagation.
  • Precise Measurement of Flame Spread: Our apparatus employs advanced measurement techniques to accurately quantify flame spread rate and distance along the surface of the material. This provides valuable data for assessing the material’s fire performance and its potential for fire propagation.
  • Safety Features: Safety is of utmost importance in fire testing. Our apparatus is designed with safety features such as flame arrestors, protective enclosures, and temperature monitoring systems to ensure safe and controlled testing conditions.
  • User-Friendly Operation: Our testers are designed for ease of use, with intuitive controls and user-friendly interfaces. The testing procedures are streamlined, enabling efficient operation and accurate measurement of flame spread parameters.


Our Fire Propagation Testers comply with the following key standard:

  • ASTM E162: Standard Test Method for Surface Flammability of Materials Using a Radiant Heat Energy Source

The ASTM E162 standard provides guidelines for assessing the surface flammability of materials using a radiant heat energy source. Compliance with this standard ensures accurate and reliable evaluation of the material’s resistance to flame spread and fire propagation.
